So I've been doing a lot of mod research here, and while I'm not trying to refute proven methods, I'm still trying to understand the logic behind extending the smokestack into the cooking chamber. As I found in my first failed smoking experiment, excessive smoke is the enemy. Just to make sure I'm correct in my assumptions I'm just going to list out my observations. Please feel free to correct/educate me if you feel differently. 1. Creosote is about the nastiest thing you can eat, and should be avoided at all costs. 2. Creosote is caused by excessive smoke in the cooking chamber 3. Extending the smokestack into the cooking chamber interrupts the flow of air, trapping more air/smoke in the cooking chamber. It just seems to me that by extending the smokestack, you're trapping all that smoke in the chamber for longer periods of time, and promoting creosote buildup. Obviously, I must be missing some benefit, or reasoning behind this, but I cant see what it is. Thoughts?
