Buying Cowboy Lump was your first mistake this year, not a good brand of lump, they use scrap lumber pieces, tongue & groove, and maybe some wood.

Pack the ring with lump and your choice of wood chunks, light about 1/2 a chimney of more lump or about 15 briquettes, spread evenly over the unlit, add your water to the pan, assemble the cooker, put your meat on and control your temps on the way up.

Make sure you are confident in the accuracy of whatever thermometer you are using, then relax BOY and have a pop.

Bruce is right about the cowboy lump. Crap in a bag.

Hey, buffalo chips were good enough for the pioneers. Why do you think they call it "Cowboy" lump? [smilie=a_bigteeth.gif]

I agree with Bruce. Use about 15 lit briquettes. I use sand in the water pan. I have a Piedmont Pan I haven't used yet. I don't like Cowboy lump either. Get some Royal Oak from Walmart. Keep us posted.
