    I'm just curious where you put your smoking wood. I have always put it right on the charcoal after soaking. Still seems to burn up quick. Do you put yours in something on top of the coals?

    Cheech I've got a brinkman smoke-n-pit with the side fire box. Before this it was a standup one with the full length front door.

    Assistance is mucho appreciated!

    Well the way I do it would be to place the wood on top. You can place it along side of the coals to help extend it out a bit if you wanted.

    When using a gas grill I place the chips inside a pouch I make out of aluminum foil.

    Not sure why it burns up so quick. What size chips are you using?

    I have the same smoker. I put my woodchips in a smoke box on top of the grill grate closest to the smoke chamber. Or sometimes I use big chunks, and I just lay them on the grill grate without the smoke box.

    I've been buying bags of hickory. Not very big pieces. I did have a nice little supply of cherry wood...but if you caught my first post then you heard about the egg incident and my drunken cousin!! LMAO!!

    L&S are you talking about on the grate that's in the fire box or the grate where the food is?

    The grate thats in the firebox. I usually get the good blue smoke that way.

    I ended up using Cheech's idea of a foil pouch right on the coals! They were to small to set on the grate!

    gypsyseagod I'm gonna fill me a bottle right now!!!! LOL!!!! I see absolutely nothing wrong with taking the shotgun filled with rocksalt!!! I'm taking my son and daughter (13-17) to the Warped tour!!!

    Um you guys did forget to mention........it's a charcoal eating machine!!! LOL!! The smoked sirloin tip roast was wonderful and well worth it!!! The wifes ribs were to die for!!!

    Thanks to all!!!!

    Maybe if you had the pig holding a serving tray with "smoking meat" on it in the shape of a rib or something like that,

    Love the logo and the idea of hats shirts etc
