This is what I do In my CharGriller YMMV, I dump aboout 3 lbs of lump in the Box and two splits and light it up, This establishes the coal base. I preheat the next split on the top of the firebox. When the pit temp drops 25 deg I add the preheated split and open the intake damper once the split ignites I close it back to where I have it dialed into. The dirty smoke only lasts a min or two and is no big deal. I add 1 split aboout every 45 min. My splits are 3" X 12". I run between 275- 325 on all my cooks 300 is the desired temp.DON"T SOAK YOUR WOOD IT IS A WASTE OF TIME WET WOOD DON"T BURN IT SMOLDERS AND GIVES OFF CREOSOTE( DIRTY SMOKE)
