My new WSM 22.5 just arrived on Friday. I ran it once empty, just to see how it worked and play with the vents. Then I had my first smoke on Sunday. Came out ok.
Had some challenges managing the temperature and ended up adding fuel (started with half a ring). I will run full from now on I think.
I started with about 3 fist size chunks in my half full ring. I did use the minion method.
How much wood do you typically use in a full ring of charcoal? I feel like I did not have enough in my half.
Any advice would be appreciated.
