     I have two pellet smokers and two drum smokers and purchased a Jambo Jr that i will be picking up next week. And have no clue what to do when it comes to starting and managing the fire in the Jamo. Do you use charcoal or seasond wood how much of either?

    Thanks in adavance

    WOW !!!!!  Congrats on the Jambo........  Check their website or call and ask the owner personally how to.......    From what I hear, they cook great BBQ......    I don't recall more than one Jambo owner here....  but then I have CRS Disease and some stuff escapes me.....

    Take pics of the new smoker for us (me) to look at.......    I noticed you haven't stopped into roll call for a proper intro......

    Please take a moment and stop into " /Roll Call/   " and introduce yourself and get a proper welcome from our members.... Also, if you would note your location in your profile, it will help in the future when answering questions about smokin'...   elevation, humidity etc....    

    We're glad you stopped in and joined our group...    Enjoy the long smokey ride....     Dave

    Thanks Dave, I have been looking for a used Jambo for over a year just found one that is two years old and i can get for about half the price of a new one after shipping.

    Thanks Jimmy J I'm confused now from what I have read you control the Jambo temp from the stack and 101 says leave it wide open

    Neill, evening....   Jambo smokers are a different breed of animal... They are a "down draft" smoker.....   Follow the manufacturer's directions....   Very few folks here have seen one, let alone cook on one....   We have one member that just completed a unit similar in flow pattern to the Jambo and he loves it....  doesn't use much wood and easy to control...  

    Once you get the hang of it, you will be singing it's praises.....
