Set your charcoal up in the bottom basket using the minion method. The minion method involves layering fuel around the charcoal basket leaving a hole in the centre to tip the burning fuel into. This allows the lit fuel to slowly burn outwards maintaining temperature at the optimal rate.
For a hot sear, go direct over the coals. For a grill just add the first stack and if you want slow and low, add the water pan for temperature regulation as it will send heat around the unit.
Temperature for your cook can now be regulated by adjusting the intake vents. If you want it hotter, open the vents. To make it cooler, slightly close the vents. When you're wanting to slowly extinguish, close all vents.
Relative to the quality and quantity of the fuel used, your smoker will burn with no fuss for several hours – delivering the most mouth-watering smoked food imaginable!
