Hello from Canada, across the river from Detroit. I am not new to smoking but just bought my first smoker. Its a $70 Brinkmans Smoke n Grill. Everything looks good but I am not sure of a few things. 1- In the charcoal pan at the bottom of the grill, is this where I would put my smoker box and have it sit right on top of the charcoal lumps? 2- How much lump charcoal should I use? I know charcoal should last about 5 - 6 hours. Thanks for all the help...... ribs n chicken will be my first test.
