2 questions in one post
First question. Is one fist sized wood chunk plenty of wood for one rack of loins or spares? Also, if the bag of chunks i purchased has small chunks as in no bigger than a dang golf ball, take it back and buy a better bag?
second question. How much smoke is produced from lump charcoal alone? main reason i ask. i have some awesome high quality mesquite lump that i want to smoke some ribs with but i need to know how much of the smoke proprieties of the wood are still around after it has been carbonized into charcoal. i want to use the mesquite lump to smoke with and it smells pretty dang clean when it is burning hot. i would not add any other wood chunks to the fire if i use mesquite lump. oh and it will be minion burn.
