I recently wrote a review of the Napoleon Apollo here...
...and in the comments section, I mentioned that I'd post pics of my setup.
Did babybacks tonight, and here's how it went....
Light Coals in Chimney.
Put lit coals back into the center. Put a chunk of wood on top. As the fire burns, these lit coals will ignite the unlit coals, and also smoke the buried wood. This setup can give me a good fire for 8+ hours at 225-275 with very little fuss.
All set…..will be at 225 deg in about 15-20 mins.
Ribs are on.
