Yeah, in my short existence as a stick burner, the short answer to the question of, "How do you get a fire that lasts all night?" is.......you don't!
It is, however, my new, favorite and preferred method of BBQ'ing. I think I like it for the challenge as well as being able to say, "cooked over only hardwood smoke" with a grin.
Cooking 2 gobblers tomorrow for the first time on the offset stick burner! Can't wait!!!
