What are some great cooks to use it for? I see a lot of talk on here about them, but I need some direction as to what to cook.

    Start with something easy first. I did just burgers and dogs as my first cook. Next I did ribs. They were fantastic. I have done wings as well. I did them indirect. I have not done a brisket yet. I will attempt that this year.

    Beef stew is always a good choice...


    I hate it when I go to the kitchen for food and all I find are ingredients!

    Check the recipe section for 'Dutch Oven Pot Roast' or 'clays pulled beef BBQ'. I've also baked bread like the various no knead breads that are around.
