Hey Mat,

I've never cooked on an Amigo, but was curious to know if you've charred up a larger cut of meat yet? How'd it go?

well as u know it has no bottom vent so i got a sheet of metal that would wrap around the bottom and put some vent in there so i can control heat alot better and yeah it works great

cheers
