So I been cooking on a WSM Wanted a offset so I bought a Old Country Pecos because it was the best bang for your buck, so I’ve cooked on it 3 times having issues every time I close the door the fire goes out so I have to leave the door open half way and I'm getting 20 minutes before I have to put a new log the logs are about 9-10 inches and they are seasoned and not wet so what am I doing wrong and what mods would you do

Not a stick burner, but I'll ask the obvious questions to give us a starting point. Are you using a bed of lit charcoal when starting, and are all your vents open? Cook chamber and firebox

Welcome to the site.
