    Assuming you don't have a charcoal basket, lay out your charcoal one at a time, don't just pour the bag into the charcoal chamber. It takes about 5 minutes to lay each one flat and you will greatly increase your burn time. If you can, get a bag of the Kingsford Mesquite, that's a wonderful charcoal for beef ribs, and you get blue smoke immediately after getting your SJ-Mini going. Good luck and take some photos

    I'm 100% Briquets guy, never really got into Lump. I think it's because a small piece popped out of my chimney and I stepped directly on it with bare feet and that sucker burned at least 10 seconds before I could finally dig it out of my foot.....still burning

    Couldn't find a extra grill grate at any of the main stores guess I'll be ordering from Amazon. Should have some photos tomorrow of a mostly finished mini!

    Looking forward to seeing your mini Alfonzo. Don't give the 2nd grate too much nevermind, I use my 2nd grate maybe 10% of my cooks in my Mini (and I use my mini a lot)
