Charcoal usage

Discussion in 'Charcoal Smokers' started by tnvolsmoker, Aug 7, 2010.

  1. I used almost twice as much charcoal today, It seemed to burn up fast. Temp stayed around 240 all day. Not a new bag of charcoal, didnt do anything different. Smoked 3 lb butt and 4 lb brisket. Loaded charcoal chimney 3 times. Any ideas? Thanks in advance

    Any chance it was damp and didn't burn as hot as normal?
     
  3. I dont think so, keep it in garage and bag rolled up

    Maybe it was a freak deal, all the weather conditions combined that caused the unusually high consumption.

    I cannot say why, but I burn far less in the winter. My truck seems to burn less also. [​IMG]
