New to the smoking game. Finally was able to make something delicious the other day (pulled pork). Went through so much coal and was constantly tending the fire to keep temp. Part of it is probably because of my cooker: dyna-glo offset vertical. Modded it up real nice, but still difficult to hold temp. Anyway, I want to try the minion method, but I'm worried about getting acrid, bitter flavors from creosote due to unlit coals being in the firebox. Has anyone had issues with this? Thanks gentlemen.
