I have a Char Griller smoker with the side fire box. I have had great success with this smoker. My last pork shoulder was okay but the bark was really bitter. I use coals in the side fire box, but I have real trouble keeping the heat up. This last time I tried burning some red oak with the coals. Pumped the heat up great but the end result was not so great. How can I avoid the bitter bark?
