The spares are on and the neighborhood is full of smoke, temp is getting to where it should be. The weather is cool and damp and not much wind so the smoke is hanging in the hood.
Check out this brass bell I picked up at the Brimfield Flee market, it's going to look nice on the taff rail of the poop deck. The neighbors are going to love THAT too when I figure out how to mount it. Great buy at $50.

    As I am still new to egging, I have what may seem like a dumb question.

    Should you have smoke like that for your entire cook? I was cooking for a bit under 6 hours (at about 250 dome). I had good smoke like that for the first couple hours but after that, I only had a small amount of smoke coming out for the rest of the cook.

    Is that normal? I was using chips mixed up amongst my lump. I had the lump filled up the the top of the fire box where the fire ring starts.

    Should I have used more wood chips? Would switching to chunks help?

    No, you don't have to have that much smoke for the whole cook. Mine is now just smoking gently and is nearing completion. I usually use chunks of wood and spread them out on top of the coals. Most of the smoke in the pic came from a handful of Hickory nut shells which make a huge amount of smoke for a short time.

    BTW, Cpt'n Cook, your stand for your Egg looks gorgeous, do you have a thread here with details? (I'm a noob)
