I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask this but here goes:
I am brand new to this way of cooking and wanted to find out if there is a fool proof way of getting and maintaining TBS on this model smoker?
Do you start with charcoal and then add the wood chunks? Do you soak the wood chunks? Wrap them in foil?
I am planning on getting a 8 in cast iron skillet for my wood because the one I got with the MB 30 is junk and the wood caught fire. I even double wrapped it in foil and it still burned up.
For now I have apple and cherry chunks I picked up at HD. I have to find a better source for fruit wood chunks as well.
Still haven't smoked anything yet but this coming weekend I may do something tasty.
Thanks for any replies.
