Good to hear you're enjoying your safe Libertarian :)
---K--- , I've grown to like this loading. There is a thin layer of lump charcoal under those wood chunks. I light the corner on the lower right side. close it up and let the CyberQ handle the rest. I have been thinking about a 100% wood loading, but have not had the time to try it yet. I also thought a 2" deeper charcoal basket would be great, but the Safe and the Vault don't need it in all honesty. They are very efficient smokers and the baskets are plenty big enough.
