I have a 30'' MES and I'm going to smoke two 7 lb butts for a new years party. I've been searching the forum to get more info on how to get a bit of a smoke ring as well as better bark. I'm going to try adding some charcoal to the smoke at the beginning, but I have a question about how to add the briquettes. I'm using some Kingsford briquettes which are kinda large for the wood chip adder. Should I simply break up the briquettes into smaller chunks? Do you add them internally before the wood? From my read of the forms it sounds like folks add several briquettes but I'm not sure how that could fit in the MES wood tray. Thanks for your help.
