Thanks for the post. Still looks good after several years. Let me ask, how do you go about adding wood if you are going to be cooking for an extended period? Just put splits on top and adjust the grate as they ignite? Or set them off to the side and let them cook down a bit.
Depends, if you need an extended cook, spend some extra time building your coal bed. You only want to cook over a coal bed. If you do need to add wood, yes do it over on one side not directly under your meat.
