Smoked a 7 pound chicken and a round eye. It was extremely moist and tender but I need to learn to lessen how much smoke I allow, my kids said it was a little to smoky. I used royal oak lumps and chunks of apple wood. My mistake after analyzing and please let me know if I’m wrong, I believe when I would add new royal oak I would smother the fire and I also would not have the vent opened all the may. I also believe I should be adding fuel a little at a time and not smother the hot coals. Does this sound correct. Please if you have any advice it would be much appreciated.
