I use lump charcoal in combination with mostly pecan wood chunks. The question I have is this: When adding fuel to the fire, I mostly add new charcoal, is it ok to just add charcoal directly to my existing fire or should the charcoal be already lit then add it? I just want to make sure that if I add the charcoal directly from the bag to the fire that I will not cause any unwanted taste in my meat. Thank you in advance.
