First cook on BWS Extended Party, need advice
 
1 Attachment(s)
Sunday I unveiled my brand new BWS Extended party and although the ribs looked nice, they had a bit too much smoke. For those of you who have one how much wood do you use and what size( how do you guys arrange it in the firebox) ?

6 chunks. I light the front right corner and the guru is on the rear left. Seems to be working fine

That's about what I do. I don't have an extended Party so I'm using 4 chunks. It seems like it would work out about the same.

4 chucks in my extended party

Why do you light the corner away from the Guru???

I use 6 chunks and move the smoke stack cover over half way.

about the same as what I do but since th ewood chunks i use are larger than that I use probably 3-4
one difference is I dont use Kingsford briquettes. Strictly lump charcoal (Royal Oak normally)

Because of how the door opens, it made more send to have my guru on the left side. I run dry and my first couple cooks I was way hotter in the back of the g2 than the front. I tried lighting the front opposite corner and my heat balanced much better. Seems to work just fine.

Thanks for sharing that. I have my Guru on the right and I light the left front.

That pic was great, thanks. But how are you lighting the bed of charcoal? Are you using a starter and dumping them on top of the bed? Also has anyone tried lighting the back and letting the fire burn forward?

I'm using 2 weber cubes in the ash pan under the front corner prob 3" in from the corner. I think 1 cube works just as well

Longo1908 02-04-2013 06:59 PM

Do the cubes impart any flavor on the meat negatively like lighter fluid?

Ron_L 02-04-2013 07:04 PM

Nope, but the cube should be burned out long before you put the meat it. I let the starter cube burn with the fire box door open and then close it and let the Party come up to temp before putting the meat in.

Nada, flavor imparted. I light the back left corner by the Stoker. I use cubes, chimney or a weed burner. 4-6 chunks depending on chunk size, cook times, meats, etc. Bigger meats get six.

Longo1908 02-04-2013 08:35 PM

I really appreciate this guys. Where do guys pick up these cubes?

Know of several cooks that use 3-4 chunks which are only 1-1/2" square in a Backwoods Fatboys for duration of cook
