Quality of the briqs I used were insanely good.
I don't think you can get the same smoke time with whatever briqs you're using,check my anwser to Buccaneer.
Don't know what the temp in the WGA was...I've only used an oven thermo once in the WGA.
Thanks for the input, Phu. I sorta figured that the briqs were the key.
I prefer lump to any of the briqs I've found here. I don't normally use my WGA for anything except grilling...for long cooks/smokes, I fire up the WSM.
It looks like you use a fairly small amount of lit briqs...how long does it normally take to warm up before it's ready to cook on?
