Re: Problems smoking outside
Looks like too much heat. Try 3 coals to start for like 3-4 min then remove one.
Or Use 2 + wind cover to start, for like 2min then move the coals around and place the wind cover on again for another 2min then leave the cover off.
I've personally never found wind to be a problem(I bought it to help with ashes being thrown around by the wind). I only use it to control any flying ashes on windy days/nights and as a replacement for 1 coal
