Hi and Thanks in advance...
What is the most efficient way to start a smoke of lets say 6 hours. Amount of lump charcoal ? placement of wood chips ? Does one start the lump from the top or the bottom ? Are the smoking chips placed though out ? Am I only trying to get enough of the fuel source lit to maintain a 225 temp? If for example I'm waiting for the temp of my egg to stabilize it would only seem logical to me to add the wood chips once the temp has been achieved. And here's a really dumb bonus question. Will coals cook from top to bottom as well as from bottom to top depending upon where the fire is started ?
Thanks for any tips.
