I generally ignite a chimney of lump, pour it over lump and a few pieces of dry Pecan,
in the basket of a UDS. Let the fire settle down to hardly any visible smoke, then add the meat.
I'm not adding fresh charcoal or fresh wood, because my UDS will run 12-16 hrs on a basket of lump. (Stubbs or Royal Oak).
