Just my 2 cents
Get a nice bed of coals, keep the flu vent (smoke stack) open. Control temperature by controlling intake. Less air less heat. If you have a cooker that has alot of leaks you will have a hard time keeping a steady temp. After you have maintained the temperature you desire you can refuel the fire as needed. Next, you must have a container in which to burn down the additonal wood to coals before you put them into the smoker fire box. A 20 gal drum with a shovel hole cut out of on side of the bottom works well. Hope this helps. Good luck.

I don't pre-burn my wood to coals before adding them. I do however pre-heat them. When added to the fire they ignite right away without smoldering, I have a continuous fire (small) that doesn't put out too much smoke. I typically do a whole cook this way and have never had a problem with too much smoke. This saves me from having a separate fire going all the time.

How do you pre-heat the wood?

Thanks, JR

pre-heating wood
I have an offset smoker with a square firebox. I set several logs on top of the firebox, and when I need more wood for the fire, I throw one of them in and take one off my wood pile put it on top of the firebox to replace what I've used.

I must try this technique. Sounds very reasonable and, of course, clever. My offset isn't square but I'm sure I can figure out something; maybe it's a good excuse to get another smoker.

I didn't quite understand part of the original post, "over smoke;" is that like "too much fun?" But I have many unlearned prejudices. That's just one.

later, JR

No, over smoke is not like too much fun. I just know some people think that if you don't use a Texas crutch (aluminum foil), the meat can be too smokey (yeah right, Like that could ever happen) I think they feel it can take on a bit of a bitter taste, but that is more a factor of fire control and producing sooty smoke when not burning cleanly.

Hey... Cool... Somebody found me that link/site I mentioned earlier....

NOT COOL... Not at all... And obviously someone is monitoring things here, since they seem to be responding directly to my "joke"/post earlier today...

There are places out in cyberworld for this kind of junk I suppose... But NOT in this forum... Take your 'business" elsewhere...

Joe - time to delete a few posts it appears... And/or to block an IP if they want to continue this....
