I am using royal oak lump by the way
I am currently doing a test run with the Minion method and noticed that it is poring out the same smoke.(hot coals igniting the cold ones)
Is this to be expected? Just seems like the meat will absorb way to much of the unlit charcoal smoke.
I am an hour in and it is holding temps around 237 f. I have 2 vents closed and one open maybe 10%, not much at all. Still just wondering about the smoke from charcoal as I am new to it.
