Default 22" WSM Coal Use


I've been thinking that I'm using too much hot coals when starting the WSM, resulting in shorter total burns. Not good.

Here's what I'm doing: I pretty much fill the charcoal ring w/ kingsford blue and I have about 4 chunks of wood in there (2 on top, 2 a little down). I make a significant depression in the center and pour about 3/4 of a large chimney filled w/ hot coals in the center.

I'm thinking that I need to cut that back dramatically, like to maybe 10 pieces or so. Hopefully that will slow down the chain of combustion and give me a longer burn.
