    Ursula vs Mrs Sparky

    well, last week when i cooked on Ursula my daughter didn't like the food. it was funny tasting. i was using lump w/ pellet packets and pieces of apple wood in Ursula. well, she told my wife who was out of town last week. so, this was 1st cook w/ Ursula for mrs spark. she wanted me to use Hazel to cook the chicken. i told her if she didn't like the food off of Ursula i would stop using her. alot on the line here. i wasn't worried. i talk to BP about some of my problems w/ the drum. he told me to keep it simple. just use kingsford comp charcoal. no lump or wood. okie dokie. i also did some research on drums and found out your suppose to leave the top vent wide open all the time. control heat w/ bottom vents. i got this.

    silent movie night. no talkie.











    at this point my wife opened back door and asked (not very nicely) when was dinner? did i panic. H#!! no. i just raised my coal basket and up'd my temp big time. now were cooking w/ fire.







    Von Da Pa



    two thumbs up garth. very moist tender and she loved the bacon corn (cooked perfectly).

    the end.

    what is that you have over the coals in the low setting? I try always to keep it open on top but sometimes you have to choke it down....
