  1. I didn't want to "hillbilly engineer" it but that seems like the best plan. Thanks everyone! Just a little but of pressure. It doesn't need much.
  2. A long bungee cord from the front handle to the lower tray mounted between the legs can help too. Just enough tension to seal.
  3. I use a large/jumbo cotton ball that I keep in a jar with Heet in it. Heet is really just alcohol. One ball is all that is needed. I use the volcano method to arrange the lump and just drop it in the hole. Presto done.
  4. Pardon my ignorance, but what is a peel?
  5. This may be the wrong place to post this. Sorry if it is. I thought it was funny and interesting! https://www.facebook.com/geology.page/videos/842468369139974/
  6. Mine turned out great! 250° for 6 hours. Used hickory chunks soaked in water for smoke. Used rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper for the rub. Used 10 inch wooden skewers to hold it all together. Shorter toothpicks helped with the bacon. I have a TTT to control the temp. Works great. Had enough for 6 people, nothing left. The tenderloin was more than plenty. Have enough left over for a couple of meals for my wife and I. All of the above was complimented with grilled bi-color sweet corn, baked sweet potatoes, deviled eggs and baked beans. Apple pie with vanilla ice cream or salted caramel gelato. Can I get an amen!!!!
  7. I also bought a brand-new fully assembled (unused) Akorn on Craigslist for $200 with a cover! Love love love it!
  8. This was a hit. 2 SwineApples and a Pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon.
  9. Getting excited. Going to do my first swineApple this weekend. Last weekend I did my first low/slow pork butt. Rave reviews from all who tried it.
  10. I love mine. Just takes some getting used to. Here is a picture of how I attached mine. A piece of cheap electro galvanized chain wrapped around the base of the chimney and secured with a piece of picture hanging wire. Secure a piece of the same type of wire to a link in the chain. Bring it across the top of the TTT and wrap it around the top once and secure it to another link on the other side. Move over 5-6 links and over the TTT again and secure to the chain close to where you started. Very secure, does not move at all.
  11. With the grill hot take an onion that you cut in half. Rub the grill with it. You grill will be non stick. No oil-pam etc. Try it.
