Default Thank you for the snake method

Until coming here I had never heard of the minion method or the snake or any of that. I just tended the fire constantly. Tonight it's cold/38f outside and I wanted to smoke anyway. I didn't want to fire up the smoker and waste a bunch of coals for 4 thighs.so I used my grill. I lined up the charcoal on one side with some hickory scattered along the top. Then I lit the coals on one end and placed my chicken on the other side of the grill with my et732 installed. I could not believe that I kept a constant temp around 275 and blue smoke for 2 hours and never added a coal or a wood chunk. I just set inside and watched the temp. There is so much to learn here it just blows me away. Thank you Brethren.
