Well I picked up some Kingsford charwood and went to season my Smoker, we 1st time using lump I wasn't impressed with the Charwood a lot of little pieces that fell through my Chimney and grate of the smoker, Anyways here we go the smoker went up to 300 then I shut it up and it was around 250-260 so i just left it , 1 thing i didn't put a pan of Water in the smoke area.. and I do have a Baffle... When I want to cool this down for my 1st smoke how do I want to do it, Close the chimney and leave the Fire box vent open ?? Anyone have any suggestions?????
