I use a dyna-glo vertical offset smoker and I love it. I use kingsford charcoal briquettes and put wood chunks on top. I'm getting ready for my second burn and need some advice about my Minion Method. I filled the charcoal basket about 3/4 the way with unlit briqs and lit about 1/2 a chimney to put it on top...that allowed me to keep a steady 220-230 for about 8 hours, but I needed more time. I'm not sure if it's worth it to light another 1/2 chimney and put that in, or put in unlit briqs when I notice my pile is getting low. I have to add wood about every 90 minutes, so I check it frequently. What does everyone think is best? I've read a lot of people bashing the idea of adding unlit briqs...but I don't see how that's different than the minion method. Thanks in advance!
