Now that I have a charcoal basket, I am wondering if I should use the minion method tomorrow smoking my 10 lb. beef brisket? I bought a 40 lb. bag of Frontier Lump Charcoal at Sam's yesterday for $14 and I have my Hickory Chunks soaking. I would like to know the best way to maintain my temp at 240 degrees F. Here is my basket.: Thanks in advance. I have a chimney and use the gas to start it. I was thinking about trying the Minion method.
