Today I received my new charcoal basket from Horizon, for my OKJ Longhorn Offset.
I have been using the minion method, but only on my fire grate so was limited to how much charcoal I could put on.
Now I will not be limited, this charcoal basket will hold quite a bit.
I will be doing a spare rib smoke Sunday - app 6 hours - I normally start with about 15-20 lit coals on top of the unlit ones, only thing I am wondering, is how many unlits should I attempt to put in the basket? Will having too many unlit make the heat higher than I would want?
I appreciate any advice !
