Using an old country Pecos smoker and its about 50 degrees. Wind blowing from stack side to firebox side pretty quickly. I can NOT get my fire/wood to burn clean and fully ignite. Never have this issue. But the weather is the first time like this. AND I usually use a chimney full of of kingsford briquettes to start, but this time I used a chimney full of b&b lump. What is going on and why can I not get a fire started?...I have been adding and babying this thing for 5 hours now. Any ideas?
