Fire Management on the Bar-B-Chef Offset Smoker Video's

What started out to be a video about fire management on the Bar-B-Chef offset smoker turned into a challenge the last three hours of smoking ribs due to the strong steady winds? This was made to give those new to using an offset smoker an idea on how to TRY and control the fire and temperature. This is divided up among four video clips. I hope someone can find this useful. BOYÖI wish the ribs were in my Weber Smokey Mountain the last three hours.

AlsoÖI usually donít open the smoke chamber until hour four but I wanted to rotate the three slabs of ribs so the oneís close to the fire side didnít get done before the others. Next time Iím keeping the chamber closed!

Next time you're fighting the wind like that, just turn your cooker
around and face it into the wind a little.

The wind will act like an oxygen boost to your fire!

I fought the same problem for a good 2 weeks when I changed the
location of my cookers in our yard until it dawned on me.

When the wind is blowing the opposite way it seems it can
almost SUCK the oxygen from the fire box.

just my $.02.... but it was the sollution for me
