Im in middle of cook on my offset and the fire has weird smell.
Im using mostly oak and little ash and maple.
It has like a asphalt smell. What it is? is from wood or cresote build up?
Also is it safe to eat?
I've never had an asphalt smell. I did get some acrid smoke now and then but it cleared up after burning some more and the temps climbed.
