Thanks for the help guys
Hi Zeller, welcome. I have a drum smoker so I can not help you. The forum has a great search bar on top of the page. Just type in what topic you need help on and you will find a lot of info. There are a lot of very knowledgable people on here that will help you out.
I've got a masterbuilt, I put charcoal and wood in the offset. Not tried any fuel in the cooking chamber.
You only need to put your fuel in the fire box, whether it be charcoal or wood. You would be direct heating the meat instead of indirect if you put a fire in the smoking chamber.
Light a fire and check the temps with an ET-732 or the like. You can move the probes around and get an idea of the temperature gradients throughout the smoker.
Absolutely, as Ryan said , Only in the Fire Box . Here's an article that will help some...http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/a/stickburning101
any other questions , PM me. I'll be more than glad to help.
Hi Zeller. As said above, heat from the firebox only. Most new smokers need a few mods to help out. If you are using charcoal in the SFB I feel the most important mod is to add a charcoal basket. With this you can load more charcoal to start with and burn for longer periods of time without reloading. I mix my wood chips into the charcoal to keep a nice TBS rolling.
Light at one end (sort of a minion method) and it will burn for hours at a fairly steady temp.
Hope this helps.
