Hey guys I am Andrew, I just got my first smoker. Its a lyfe tyme tripple lid with a side firebox and a vertical chamber on the opposing end. I live in southern California. I have smoke a few times previously on a homemade barrel smoker, but this new smoker has a lot for me to learn. I was wondering what the best type of heat source for a pit of this size is? Also what is an acceptable amount of soaked wood to use for flavor? Any tips on how to best use the vents to control temp would also be appreciated. Dont worry I know how to search so I will not be starting new threads for all of these questions. However, any tips that could help me I am all ears! Thanks guys!
