I have used briquetts and always get the coals white before cooking. If I have to add coals I start them in a chimney then add them. If I throw new coals onto a fire the meat gets a chemical creosote taste to it. So that being said using the minion method new coals are steadily being lit. Wouldn't this also impact the flavor. I now use RO lump and have no chemical taste issues. I had an offset smoker and am now using a weber smokey mountain 18.5 and just discovered the minion method. Your opinion?
