First cook in the IKEA last night with my 9” Billmans.  Everything went as it should.

Looking forward to not only experimenting on different things but also with using lump charcoal.

Cooked a piece of beef for dinner and quite excited.

1st Photo.  My old Weber Heat Beads chimney firing up.

2nd Photo.  Heat Beads on each side to create indirect heat.

3rd & 4th Photos.  It has vents top and bottom similar to a Weber Kettle.  I was able to maintain 180 degrees

5th Photo.  Roast goes in a tray.

6th Photo.  Cooked very nicely with the potato and sweet potato done in the beef fat.

7th & 8th Photos.  Dinner was pretty good.

On to a winner with this one I think.

Just as an aside.

I should have counted the Heat Beads but forgot.  I think there was roughly 25 each side.  I recall when I had a Weber Kettle I used to use 32 each side.

Dinner took 1 hour 40 minutes to cook and maintained 180 degrees the whole time.  I did go out at 2 hours 30 minutes and it was still sitting on 160 degrees.

Next time I will count the beads but really keen to get some lump charcoal so I can get that real wood fire taste.
