  • The advantage is you may not need any lump, once you get that crud burning and control the airflow, next low and slow is on the house....
    Has to be the most I've ever seen.

    Well-insulated.  Probably great for a low and slow.

  • From a scientific perspective...I wonder if the uneven crud in your lid introduces inefficiencies in the convection process that occurs within the egg.  Would seem to me that it would have some type of impact.

    Eventually the rack may no longer fit inside all that build-up forcing a clean burn:)

    Clean burn is just firing it up as hot as she'll go and letting all that "seasoning" burn off.

  • You may want to inform the local fire department of your intentions beforehand

    I would load up that sucker and burn the @#$@! out of it.  

    The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire. we don't need know water let the @#$#@$ burn.  

    Fire in the hole!

    Clean it out good then you are good to go.

    Clean burn definitely called for and it will look almost new when finished but will probably fry the gasket!

  • And he'll end up with some goo on the outside too, although he probably doesn't care about that.

  • burn it until the fire goes out I would do it after a cook so as not to waste lump just open up bottom vent all the way take off daisy wheel and let it rip

  • A lot of that crud will fuel it's own fire. Make sure you have lump at the top of the firering to start. Maybe do a pizza at the end

    And make sure you pull the thermo out. It will be toast otherwise.
