Newbie with a few questions
SmokingMeatForums.com Top Picks
What sort of smoker you are using has a lot to do with the more correct answer. I have an ECB and I use the minion method in a charcoal pan. other things including air intake can cause you to burn more or less too. We are looking for Thin Blue Smoke and not billowing smoke so you don't want to overdue it with the smoke
That sounds about right. I don't have any experience with the offset smokers, but I would probably rebuild before it got too low I'm sure some of the more experienced off set users can point you in the right direction. You may need to post your question in that section though?
I like to keep the smoke going for at least two thirds of every cook I do. I just ease another chunk of wood into the pan if I need more or when I add charcoal I toss in a few more.
A chunk of wood is about 3 inches long and about 2 inches wide. About the size of the small tomato juice cans.
