RE: Still not gardening

It's not very fancy - about 3 feet tall, I guess, you fill the bottom
tray with charcoal and wood chips and there's a pan for water that sits
above it. Then there are two racks that go over that to hold the food.
We spread out the jalapenos on the trays, I think I got about 40 or 50
in there at one time.
