I think the key to success with this is an insulated FB, which allows choking down on the firebox full of wood without producing white smoke. OR, you would need a good, tight wood loading scheme to limit the size of the fire.

Let us know how your test burn goes. I almost didn't put meat in the chamber 'cause I thought it had little chance of success....
we will see.

Smitty's bandera is not insulated. it seemed to work for him. I am not going to put any meat on it, just try a burn

I really dont think the firebox is airtight enough to control the fire

its worth a try
