Good question! Maybe a pork shoulder, something easy.

I have some Snake River Farms wagyu ribeyes that I want to try smoking until 120 and then searing to finish, but I want to get a little familiar with it before trying that. I’m anxious to see if I can get a good sear!

Sorry for the delay! It snowed a couple inches last night and was about 20 degrees this morning. Assembly was pretty easy.

Paired with phone easily and did an update that took around 15 minutes.

First startup did not go as planned. Set to 600 to “season” for 30 mins per manual. Started smelling smoke, but 5 mins later temp had not gone up and it gave an E6 start up failure error and did a shutdown.

Currently waiting 15 mins for that then will power cycle and try again.

Hopefully this is just a fluke??

Well, it's heating up like crazy now! The manual didn't mention it, but I wonder if I should have primed the firebox with a few pellets since it was completely empty? Been about 10-12 minutes and it's up to 490. I'll let it go for 30 minutes and then it's time to cook something!
