Starting at 200 for the first hour for some heavy smoke and then up to 350 for the rest of the cook..........

Thats a neat lookin Smokin machine. They do recommend foiling the drip tray, I read that in 4 different spots on their website. Hows that interior light workin out?

Your bags of Kingsford are giving your grill the stink eye.

I just don't have the heart to part with my Kingsford...even though they were a causality of the great charcoal revolt of 2012, I will not get rid of them yet..........until I have Eric order me a skid of pellets  ;D :D

and I do line the drip pan with  HD foil in the Yoder and the Rec Tec...it does make cleaning easier..........

I will give you some time but you will eventually stop lining the pans with foil ;)

and the reason for no foil?

I am the first to admit I am a pellet newb..but to remove a greasy pc of foil and to have a clean drip pan just makes sense to me...what am I missing here......

 help me Muebe won Konobi.....help me to understand things over here on the dark side  ;) :)

I stopped using foil cause I always end up getting grease under the dam foil anyways. :)

rookie!   :D  :P    everyone foils pans when the grills are new.  that won't last long.   ::)  you seem to pick grills that like to eat pellets.
