That's great!, your 336, I'm 337!

Did my first cook tonight ever on a smoker of any kind, so I made a "wood fired" pizza. Figrured I should keep it simple. Worked great and tasted fantastic. :o

Nothing better than bacon to season in a pit!

I forgot how clean they look when new. Ours are that dark brown leaning towards black inside. I found to sweep out the MAK I got a cheap hand broom cut off the handle and the size is then right for easy cleaning. Couldn't find a whisk style small enough. I vacuum out every few months at best, the broom with the ash door works so well

Awesome Spark! I'm with Jim, soon you'll be looking back at these pics and you'll be amazed at how clean and shiny your baby was! Just remember if it isn't dirty it isn't getting enough love. Congrats brother can't wait to see what you crank out with that MAK!

I can tell you exactly how 336 is going to do in the cold. She won't even flinch. You just tell her where you want her to go temp wise and she will more than willingly oblige. Congrats on your new purchase. You're going to love it!

Ditto what KyNola says. I've run my MAK when it was 7. Grill doesn't care... Not very pleasant for the griller, though.

Just make sure you've got plenty of pellets on hand!

I'm not worried about #336 either, I am a little concerned about you though...(I've been assured you guys wear shorts year round)...might want to double up on the FT's...and use a coozie to help keep your hand from getting cold, there good for that too! :D. (oh wait, is this a NoCal - SoCal difference?)

Im really happy for both of you guys..

Now when you say, "both of you guys" do you mean Sparky & Mr Hickory... or do you mean Sparky and his new MAK? He he ;)

Congrats Sparky. Can't wait to see more ribs!
