Very informative post. I'm still trying to perfect the cheap little offset we use and I threw together a makeshift box with the expanded for our last competition, but it looks like we have been using way too much charcoal to keep our fire going. Curious... for a just a KCBS cook on an average weekend, how much wood are you bringing for that pit alone, and what are you running at?
I use about a split or 2 an hour... Have cooked for little over 16 hours with about 20-24 splits.. Doesn't use as much fuel as u might think.. Temps are 275-325 for my cooking temps.. In my main chamber... Keep in mind my vertical runs about 75 degrees less than the main cooking chamber...
