I have a Char-Griller with smoke box. All my smoking has been small portions for the family. So I have just used indirect heat in the main chamber, using 1 - 2 chimneys of characoal and soaked chips applied right to coals.I have never used my smoke box. This summer we are having a family reunion and they want a BBQ. So I am wondering if I can get enough heat out the smoke box, so I can use my full grilling surface. I have bought about50lbs of hickory logs.Can I just burn the logs in the smoke box and will that provide enough heat, should I soak any of the logs, or use a combination of logs and coals? Any advise would be appreciated. I am doing a trial run this weekend.
