How much charcoal?

post #1 of 5

How much lump charcoal for a ten hour smoke in an offset? I will also be using some small pieces of wood, not chunks. Thanks.

Depends on smoker but I think 30 lbs would be enough?

It's a New Braunfels Silver Smoker.

That's a real tough question. I know 20 lbs would be more than enough for my offset, but you should be really safe with 30.

It only took about 8 lbs.  It was pretty warm, yesterday, so the temp held pretty steady, all day long.  I started the fire around 7 a.m., and only had to add charcoal a couple times.  I had to add quite a bit of wood, though.
