    We also served Grilled potatoes , carrots , onions in tin foil , and two types of coleslaw , one a vinegar based
    and one that was chipotle honey mustard base ( mayo , apple cider vinegar ).

    I was very pleased with the hunsaker . Temps were vey stable , smoker heats up fast . Nice flavour to meats .
    After closing vents down , once cooled we still had charcoal left for next cook . Nice feature i liked was the bottom vent lever
    you could control with your foot . Moving grills around for adjustment was easy . It was also nice to have a latch on lid
    for keeping lid open when checking food . the smoker was very responsive to vent adjusments for heat increases or decrease in temp . Moving smoker around was easy with the wheels .
    In the near future we are going to do ribs on the hunsaker and pit barrel for comparrsion .
