Default Rebel 17

Rebel 17 first cook
My new Rebel 17 was delivered this Friday after work.
The next day I got to season it and cook on it for the first time.
I sprayed 2 cans of Pam on the inside surfaces and grates.
Then I installed my new PitMaster IQ110.
Lit my charcoal (Kingsford Blue) and brought it up to 300 deg in about 30 min.
The IQ110 held it at 300 deg steady as a rock for 2 hours.
I then lowered the temp to 250 deg and put on some chicken thighs.
Used a few chunks of hickory.
Chicken came out great!!
Loved my new smoker!
Starting on a brisket point this morning.
Anyone else smoking on a Rebel 17 or the larger ones?

Not familiar with that model smoker.
Looks like a horizontal flow...
Is it hard to shut the door?

Nice smoker. but know I have a crick in my neck. My better half comes in and say why not just turn the screen on its side, my kids tell me to look at it lying down. the dog just sits next to me wanting a treat. Sorry got a little off topic. All in all a great smoker.
