Ok..thats the first step. I have this "OK" unit: http://www.bbqgalore.com/smokers/bar_b_chef_offset/ And, Im always either adding too MUCH charcoal, or not enough, or the chunks are too small and dusty *ick* or... Should I be using just wood? Or pellets and adding wood for smoke? Id like to have some consistent heat, I feel that right now I have to go add a few handfuls of charcoal to the bin every 15-20 minutes, and that seems too often..keeps me away from just WATCHING it smoke. The fire door seals up..well, maybe 95%, and I never close up the vent..always wide open.
