Doing chicken thighs tonite, direct raised grid, 2 hours @ 250-275 per woodoggies method.[p] If I fill the Firebox with lump and start in 3 places with weedburner torch how long should I wait with lid open before putting chicken on??[p] Should I close lid and bring to temp?? [p] How much lump do I want burning before I start to cook.[p] The reason I ask is, I read alot of posts that say to light lump and wait until white smoke goes away before cooking. Is the white smoke going to go away if I light the lump and bring to low temp of 250 degrees with lid closed?. I know it would go away with lid open for 20 minutes and burning hotter. I am confused.
