Does anyone have any tricks for adding wood when cooking indirect? I have a medium egg with a woo and pizza stone to cook indirect.
Energy efficiency would suggest that I heat up the pizza stone while I am starting up the charcoal and letting the coals offgas. However, that involves removing the woo plus pizza stone, tossing in some wood, and then putting back the woo plus pizza stone before adding the item to be cooked This works since I have welder's gloves, but it still a pain the neck and potentially runs the risk of a burn (if you're not fast).
The alternative is to get the charcoal started, add the wood, put on the woo plus pizza stone, add the item to be cooked, and then wait for the egg to come up to temp. This method works, but seems energy inefficient.
