    First smoke on my WSM, new to charcoal.

    Interesting first lite of charcoal, definetly things to learn BUT:

    I finally got some TBS going. Hickory chunks!

    Its very think, and its cloudy out so I cant get a good picture, but its there!!!! Very exciting I thought I'd share that with you all.

    Q Views to come.

    Did you mean thin, or thick?

    You do want thin, not thick.

    Oh it was thin. Now its gone. I guess there is a bit to learn about wood placement / amount used.

    Still cooking tho so I'll have to taste test to see what amounts to use. Also its crappy out so hard to see any smoke.

    Thanks all!

    EDIT: As I write this, I must have hit another chuck of hickory because its back.

    Its cool how small adjustments to the vents can control the temp.
