Master of the Pit
- Feb 22, 2010
This is a short but good story. Yesterday I loaded my charcoal basket with Kingsford blue. I started it using the Minion method and smoked a bird for about 5 hours. in all the excitement about my first bird i forgot to close the vents. Today I look outside and I see it is still smoking 30 hours later. I have a big basket and the temps had fallen to 200° but wow. That is a lot of smoke for a basket of charcoal. It was a 20 pound bag i used it all because I had never used Kingsford before i had always used lump so I had no idea how long it would last. We had rain and a cold front come in last night on top of that so we were near freezing temps last night.
