I found a great deal on a Master Forge dual fuel smoker. I've searched the forums but haven't been able to find much detailed info on using Charcoal as the main fuel in this smoker.
This is my first smoker, though I use my LP grill a ton. I know I'll be smoking quite often and to save on LP I would like to use charcoal/wood as much as possible but with the ability to quickly bring it up to temp for poultry if needed.
Can anyone with experience with this smoker help me understand how well or not this will work? I'm thinking I would probably need a better/bigger charcoal box to hold enough charcoal and a couple of wood chunks. Will airflow be a problem? I'm thinking maybe using a wok for the charcoal holder. Any insight from someone with experience would be awesome. BTW, Great community, I have already learned a ton and I'll be buying some of the rub you guys offer as a way to say thanks.
