I'm gonna experiment this weekend with my Junky Bandera. I'm gonna pack as many splits as I can get as tight as I can get in FB on top of grate that sits 2" off floor and dump 1 chimney of lit coals on top and let it go. Not gonna put any food in till I see what it does. I think it'll be Heavy Harsh Smoke from smoldering wood but we will see. I have a guy at work who says his Church buddy does this and my work buddy swears the Q is Good (and he's had my Q many times- it's the guy who helped me patch up this Turd).
