Here's some more. For charcoal in this unit I have found that Royal Oak lump works the best. Wicked Good, my normal fuel, burns way too hot for this cooker. I light the fuel with a half chimney of hot charcoal and dump that onto a chimney of unlit in the basket. Intake is half open and stack is fully open. Cooker gets up to temp, smoke clears up, meat goes on. Not sure about the timing of all that. After about 2 1/2 to 3 hours, I push all the hot and almost spent fuel over towards the smoke chamber and pour more unlit beside it on the vent side. Get at least another 3 hours of heat. Works for me.
