This is my first post and tonight I did my first chicken smoke!
Question for you all about the amount of charcoal to use?
I started with a charcoal chimney worth, placed it in my offset smoker and let it burn for 30 min. I added my chicken and added a few coals about every 30 Minutes. About 3 hours in, I found my smoker temp dropping and my coals cold and ineffective at lighting newly added coals.
Should i have added more coals at my 30 minute checks or at the start? I didn't want to add to many and worry about the creosote taste.
Any help would be great. thanks.
