Previous record were ribs in a 5 hour smoke last year in Portugal.

Lined up the WGA with 23 cold Ecobrasa cocos briqs and added 5 hot coals...smokingwood was pear twigs.

When I was done smoking I had about 2 briqs lePht.

2 questions...any idea what your temp was during that long smoke?
Is the key to getting such a long cook out of a relatively small amount of fuel in the WGA using those nice uniformly shaped cubes? In other words, is it because they're so tightly packed in? I've only used my GA a handful of times, but haven't been able to sustain such a long cook. I'm using more traditional lump (Royal Oak)...I'm wondering if that's my issue. Do I need to take my time and really get the lump packed in nice and tightly before adding some lit coals?

Oh yeah...and great looking plate as always
