I'm new to this site. I have been smoking meats for a least 10 years on a ole' Weber kettle. Just move up to a new Oklahoma Joe's (20 x 40) with side fire box. The new pit is taking a lot of getting use to. The OJ takes so much more coal, chucks, and sticks than the Weber. I'm having issues keeping temps up with out pumping more fuel every 30 -60 min. or so. Fuel seems to burn extremely fast. Even when I damper down. I have multi calibrated thermometers so monitored temps should be correct. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Really great site!!!!!!!!!!!!!
