Yesterday many told of their favorite BGE cooks. Could that question be refined a bit to cooks on the mini? I bought one and am wondering what everyone manages to fit in this litle guy...Will it burn long enough to do a small pork butt (4-5#)? I'd appreciate any & all comments! TIA!!

    I did add lump at the 4 hour mark to get it to 190 internal. Did taste great and camr out fine.

    Before you added more lump, did you get it going first to allow the toxins (white smoke) to burn off?

    Some nice-looking cooks there! Are you using it 'stock' (out of the box) or do you employ some accessories?
  • all cooks pictured were done with the out of the box as is. i did make a cast iron grid and a soapstone 'platesetter' and i have a pie pan with raised grid. and i did smoked cheeese on the mini with it..
