New to the forum and to the Egg (just got a large). I was wondering if people could give a bit of help with fundamentals.
How much wood chips do you use when smoking? I guess it will also be time dependent- if you were smoking something for say 2 hours or if you were doing a long smoke on say a pork butt - how much do you use?
Related to that is the charcoal. Do you keep it full all the time, or vary based on need? How long should a full box be able to burn for at smoking temps?
Also when do you add the wood chips? Do you mix them all up with the charcoal before lighting? Do you add it after you reach the desired temperature (I noticed a couple recipes where they say to do this)? Combination?
Also, how long does it take you to get your Egg up to temp - either lower for smoking, or high for grilling?
Thanks and I look forward to being part of the group.
