Can you add charcoal to smoker box?
It is a common misconception that you can simply add charcoal to the Side Fire Box whenever you want to raise or maintain the temperature. We recommend starting a new chimney of charcoal each time as adding the already burning coals will help maintain the temperature better than adding unlit charcoal.
How long does charcoal last in a smoker?
In a low and slow or oxygen restricted environment, for example, bullet and offset smokers, Kamado or Weber kettle (lid on) you can expect double the lasting time on average compared to the open grilling applications. So lump charcoal should burn for 4-6 hours versus your briquettes giving you a good 8-10 hours.
Most charcoal grills have vents on the bottom. Open the vents wide and you get more air and thus a hotter fire. Partially close the vents and you get less air and a cooler fire. Make sure the vents are open when you light your charcoal and set up the grill.
