Mini's home..

Ready to start.

Fire in the Hole!

Starting with a baked potato at 400 for an hour

Then a couple or Brats from a local farmer

Made a great meal!

Held 400 like a rock despite high winds and cold temps. I think I'm going to love this thing and use it a lot! Got a 13 pound turkey for the Medium tomorrow, think I'll do sweet potatoes in the Mini....


  • you lucky Dawg.
  • Very well done. That is a very nice cooker to have around.

    The mini is sooooo cute. Just might have to get one to add to the family. What's the cooking grate size on them?

    9.5 inches. A couple of burgers, a few brats. Heats up quick, doesn't use much charcoal. And cute as heck, while being a mean little cooker:-)

    Thanks! Tried to take it easy on the gasket for the first go (the kit included an extra gasket with a note about this lot having gasket problems...), and I was impressed with how easy it was to keep the temp where i wanted it. It's a great little cooker. The cake pan and foil worked fine for an improvised raised indirect. I'm gonna have fun with it :laugh:

    Everyone who has a mini loves it and I can see why! Congrats!
  • The mini's are great fun. Sure glad I have one.

    I love ours. Hickory smoked a marked down [.99 cents lb] 5 lb turkey breast yesterday that came out great.
    Sliced it up and then toasted some tortilla rounds on the mini using a 8 inch pizza stone from Amazon and had some turkey wraps.
