No doubt. You guys had some answers I didn't even have questions for.
THanks Bandit for getting this fire started.

I have an Old Country offset that is 1/4" thick, witha 20" diameter by 48" long cooking chamber and a 20 X 24 firebox. Using the charcoal basket and the minion method starting with 2 pieces of oak, pecan or mesquite and dumping a full chimney of lit KBB on top, I can get about 2 - 3 hours at 250 followed by 2 - 3 logs at roughly one hour intervals. If I get distracted and the fire gets low, I throw some RO lump on top and open the intake until things get back to a solid 250. A brisket/butt/rib cook usually consumes a bag of charcoal and a $10 bag of wood from Academy. It's more of a pain than the WSMs, but it's a lot more fun, IMHO.

Why would you use charcoal on a stick burner

When the overall cooking times runs from several hours into several days maintaining a pit.

True example - cooking hot and fast (during the day) and slow and slow at night.
Ran splits cooking chicken during the day -quick turnover/production and 24 butts per load during the night - low and slow burning charcoal.
No one (in the right mind) could stoke a wood burning fire for 4 days non-stop.

For startup purposes to help establish a good coal bed. Second reason - laziness. Sometimes I'll run the thing sort of like a WSM. Basket with a layer of KBB in the bottom, mix in some smoke wood chunks and dump a chimney of lit RO lump on top. Throw on more smoke wood hourly. Makes a good system for shorter cooks like chicken or ribs. Charcoal for heat and wood for flavor.

I only use about a 1/4 bag of RO lump to establish a coal bed then it's Post oak and sometimes a Split or two of mesquite every 45 min or so until the end.
