Hi! Newbie here and I dont a question about the mes I have ordered. Do I have to burn wood chips the entire time I am using the smoker? On the brinkman we used I would do the 3-2-1 method, but with no wood after the first three just charcoal to keep the fire going. What steps will I need to do this in the mes? I am hoping with the mes I will not need my fireman aka husband and be able to smoke more on my own and when I want since I have fell in love with it. With our brinkman we had some good results but had a very hard time keeping a consistent temp. Thanks in advance for any help!
