So I have been smoking with a Brinkman electric for a few months and it has been a blast but I feel it was time to get me a charcoal smoker to get the real feeling of smoking. So my wife surprised me with a new Brinkman smok'n pit and I was stoked! I have recently found out that I have no real idea on how to run one I did some turkey after I cured it and I am having a hard time keeping temps up I am blowing through copious amounts of charcoal and my temps are inconsistant at best. I have a weber chimney starter which has been nice but I need some serioius help I have looked online an there is not much advise. So I am begging for some information on how to maintain heat and how much charcoal on average should a six hour smoke take? Any information is appreciated thanks.
