Cool, I guess I got lucky. Last two times I figured I didn't use enough. And since I don't have a real chimney, what I did was this.
I dumped a ton in the bowl, unlit. Sprayed with fluid, and lit. I let just the open bowl sit there in the open air until it looked like this,
I stirred em up so the white ones were even all around then put the smoker over it and there it was. Somehow it stayed at 240-250 for almost 5 hours. I think beginners luck, watch next time it'll hit 450 lol
Cool, I grabbed it since it was barely over 6 bucks for 18 lbs. It sure did work!
