using a Dyna glo offset verticle smoker . anyone ever tried starting the fire with charcoal then switching to all wood ?
any reason you couldnt do this with any offset smoker ?
I've always started my off-sets with pre-lit charcoal and then switch to all wood; although sometimes adding charcoal can help get the temp up. I find my wood fires leave less ash than charcoal and are less prone to choking out from lack of air flow during long cooks.
