Lighting a fire in Medium Sized Stickburner with Pics!
Lately i have seen a lot of folks have trouble with getting their stickburners up to temp.. I am doing this thread as a way to give new people a outline as to how I light my stickburner.. and what i use for fuel. times and so forth. First off this is what i start with.. Cheapest Charcoal I could find.. because I'm primarily burning sticks for fuel anyways.. Charcoal is just a means to help get my fire going in the first place. I start with about a 3rd of a bag.. which takes of very little of my fire basket.. Keep in mind SMALL HOT FIRE is ideal for offset smoking.
