I use the MINION METHOD and can get about 16 to 18 hours out of a large bag of Kingsford... Also,. don't open the smoker. Just set it and forget it.. To much oxygen rushing in will cause the coals to flare up and then you have to try to regulate the temp and it shortens fuel life.. I learn by my mistakes.. Good luck!!

Reading about all these rings full of KF charcoal got me thinking about all the useless "ash" we have to deal with. (I put mine, cool, of course, in a trash bag and cart it to the dump.) Couldn't we make birdbaths or patio pavers or something useful with it?

(Lump charcoal ash should be fine for adding to garden soil, but not KF "ash".)

Puff, maybe a little spackleing? Try mixing it with water and see what happens!

I hope this isn't negative!
