Got my new 25 Friday. Seasoned on Saturday. Very little of the wood burned 2 pieces of hickory but temps held well for 6 hours, about 200. Didn't add new wood just left the 2 pieces in, threw in the PB with Montreal seasoning rub. It reached 195 in 16 hours. No peeking. Pulled and invited over friends. Basically it was OMG. Everyone loved it. Cold Slaw and beans and soft rolls. Very little of the wood burned however. I will place it closer to the holes next time. The rub was a little salty on the bark but when pulled and mixed it was great.
