Title: Fire management
Post by: El Toro on December 09, 2018, 10:09:15 PM
Smoked some butts today and after my wood ignited I would shut the firebox door and Id end up with dirty smoke. I waited for about 15-20 minutes and nothing changed, I had to go stoke the fire. I wonder if it was the wood, it would ignite but it would smolder a few minutes after shutting the door. Now I was using a cyberq with 2 fans on my big offset, and I made sure the fans were pushing out air. As soon as I opened the door, the logs would ignite. Any suggestions?
