Adding smoke


Joined Nov 13, 2010
For those of you seasoned uds smokers what is your method of adding wood chips/chunks to get a long smoke. I have used mine a few times and realy like it but without an access door to add smoking chunks i have to remove the lid and take the meat out to get to the fire box.Is this what you guys do or do you just throw in a bunch right away and leave it alone. Thanks

I put the wood in right away, and then just leave it.

Line it up around the outer edge of the basket.  You only need a few chunks.  sometimes
I try to spiral it out from the center, so its like a slow smoking fuse of wood chunks.  Not sure if it does anything, but I've had smokey goodness coming out of the lid for 14 hrs. without messing around.
