Greetings - I've had my BGE for a few years, and really love it. But I'd like to do some smoked meat, pulled pork and other. I'm having a hard time getting it slow, and getting smoke to last hours, like 6, 8 or more.
To start the BGE I load coals, use 2 starter blocks. And close the dome, open top and bottom vents. it gets to 750 degree in no time. And I just can't get it low enough. I'd like 200-220. I can get it to 350.
How much coal to put in?
Do I add soaked wood chunks, after heating? I've heard here it's good to mix them into the coals.
Start coals with dome open, or closed?
Any tips appreciated. Might make a good BGE Smoking FAQ.
