I am new and have never smoked before. I have a question about the minion method or just adding charcoal in general during a smoke. If I am already going do I need to start more charcoal in a chimney and get it grey before adding it? With the minion method the charcoal ignites and starts during the smoke. I was told by someone that you should never put black fresh charcoal in during a burn because it will cause creosilt and blacken your food. wouldn't that happen in a minion method burn to then or was I given wrong information? Thanks for your input.
