could someone explain this statement:
I pushed it to the edge, I backfilled,
Does this mean to keep fire at the back of the firepit and add new wood/fuel to the front near the door? (compared with having a fire/coals spread out over the grate)
Is this the process of banking a fire, if so, please explain...
When cooking a long cook and ash builds up under the grate, do you try to remove it to improve air flow?
I have been cooking with a charcoal base, kingsford, and splits/logs on top. It seems if i stir the fire any i get alot of ash flying. Maybe i need to try a hardwood charcoal.
Any suggestions?
