The stack on a cooker? I'd stop all air flow to put it out.

A charcoal chimney? proceed!

The chimney in your house? Call the fire department!

It depends on what you mean.

Fatalis 03-31-2013 07:05 AM

Ok guys...lol



Should I restart the process with new ones because I am doing a pulled pork?

Good point. I assumed it was the charcoal chimney.

If you're talking your chimney of coals that you are going to put on top of your unlit coals are burning with lots of flames, just wait till they calm down and ash over. Then dump on your unlit.

Does that help? Maybe I still don't understand your issue.

I think that might be the idea is to have a charcoal chimeny burn to start the charcoal, at least up here that is..

BigBellyBBQ 03-31-2013 07:10 AM

I think I am just confuuuuused...

Fatalis 03-31-2013 07:10 AM

Thanks guys, I am just a little nervous thats all. When my mom decides to take a look shes gonna be on fire :oops:

ButtBurner 03-31-2013 07:19 AM

Im still lost on this

maybe thats good LOL

Proceed!

Once they get hot in a chimney I don't think they will slow down until there's nothing left to burn and that will go quickly.

Don't be nervous - that's what they're supposed to do. Some folks who like a really hot grill for searing will set a grate on top of the charcoal chimney to achieve that.

Well, if its gonna be toast will it last a 10 hour smoke on top of already used charcoal?

Please explain what your chimney is. Which one and then you can be calmed.Steve.
