    Shirley's didn't get a chance to get any pictures or video. So, once I get the plumbing, lighting, and all done, I'll do the walk around video and send it to them.

    What are you doing with all those biscuits ;)
    Great looking pit man. Enjoy it.

    Doing a biscuit test? 

    My son and I found that a bacon test works just as well and we prefer the by-product.

    If you want to avoid all by products, the candle test will accomplish the same end.

    Bacon is not something to be avoided.  @SGH I'm frankly disappointed in you.

    No no. I'm not advocating avoiding bacon. Not at all my friend. However the candle test is a way to avoid getting the pit nasty until you are done showing it off and getting all the "new" pics taken. Also the candle test will show a slight down draft or "pull" a little better than the bacon and biscuits will. I'm all for bacon my friend. However manufactures that tune your new pit don't want to get it dirty and greasy. They want to sell you a new looking pit. It's here the candle test shines.

    OK.  You're forgiven.  And I'll retrieve my SGH Double Seal of Approval from the trash now.

    How do you do the candle test?  

    (bacon costs a lot more than biscuits, and I already have an excessive amount of food I'm going to be cooking this week and just didn't need 100lbs of crispy bacon laying around.)

    I'm in heaven!!!!!

    Synced in within 5 degrees side to side. I let it get to 350 cause I kept adding sticks. It's nothing but clean blue smoke. It's amazing.



    Started with the obligatory naked Fatty.



    Where did it go?



    While that was happening I size checked my crawfish pot.  OHH yeah.



    Now it's time for a drink by the fire.

    The very astute of you will notice I said I can't season it today because it's my 2 year wedding anniversary.  I hope my wife is as understanding as she's acting right now!!
