Hmm...

Also don't forget to place your Weber in the middle of a copper pyramid to align the chakras of the ribs and briquettes. You'll get 40+ hours at least then...

I fully load the Weber chimney with briquettes and light it as usual. But as soon as just a few briquettes catch at the bottom of the chimney (less than 10 perhaps) I dump that entire load on one side of the kettle, coals held back with 2 bricks. Ready to smoke in about 10 minutes when temps stabilize.

- The foilpack around the outer rim has a mix of hickory and cherry chips, with holes poked throughout.
- Yes, I meticulously arrange my charcoal to promote an even, long burn.
- The lit coals are grey - black coals are unlit. They burn around the half circle.
Open the lid exhaust wide open, and control your temp with the kettle vents.
- Drip pan in the open area if you like can contain some water for further temp regulation.

Good luck!
I think there might be medication to help with your "meticulousness"
