    I wouldn't fill up the entire pan, might make the temps too high and will make it difficult to maintain. Try doing a search for the modified minion method, a thread by CinnamonKC. It's a tried and true method to get the most out of your charcoal, and not the entire bag of it at one time!!

    Good luck with the smoke!
