When putting new wood in the smoker.

  1. When in the middle of smoking process do you just add new seasoned wood or start using lump?

  3. Yes I have a brinkmann trialmaster. I am using apricot wood. I've done some mods to it.

    Are you using charcoal as your fuel source and the apricot wood for smoke flavor or are you starting the fire with charcoal and then adding wood splits to maintain the fire?
     
  5. Starting the fire with charcoal and then large pieces of split seasoned wood. I let that burn down some until the smoke is not so thick and colored.

    Split the seasoned wood into pieces about 1 1/2 - 2" splits..... preheat if possible on the firebox or inside the smoker on the cooking grate... seems to work the best...
     
  7. Do I add wood or charcoal on the longer smokes.

    If you need more wood/charcoal for heat and smoke, yes, add more...
