Great advise right there. I had the same problem as the OP initially. When i light in the center for low and slows, my egg tends to burn down and back. As such, when doing low and slow now, I load some lump, then circle my chunks around the center and to the back. Then more lump. Light the middle and then add a chunk or two on top of the lit lump. My larger cuts get plenty of smoke for me.lousubcap said:As you note, for L&S cooks, the volume of fire burning at any one time is quite small, but the temperature of that fire is hot. The fire travels around the lump load seeking fuel throughout the duration.
Load your smoke wood in the center and closely out from the center to pretty much ensure interaction with the traveling fire. At the end of a L&S look at the lump burn pattern and you will get an idea of where not to put smoke wood for the next cook. FWIW-
