I have a brinkman offset, my first time was great burning with wood, but the second time bad. Asked brethren for advice and figured out that the first time I had a bigger bed of coals to start with then added my wood. Now I start with 1 full chimney of lump and add 1 full chimney lit to it, let it come up to temp and add split. Dont get in a hurry, let temp settle down, then add split every 1/2 to 3/4 hour. Dont let it burn down to much before next split. I use small splits because I have a small unit. Remember, small fire, but hot, and good air flow. Also keep exhaust open, dont choke fire, and look to see if grate is high enough to let ash drop down and not smother fire. Preheat splits before adding. Good luck
