How Do You Choose the Right Amount of Charcoal?
So when it comes to charcoal grilling, I'm a newbie. Been Gassin for a long while. My problem is never knowing how much charcoal to use to achieve certain temps. Is this just a trial and error thing or is there a method to this madness. For example, if I want to smoke a fattie at 250-270, how much lump should I be using? Do I use my charcoal chimney as a gauge? If I want to grill a Ribeye, same question. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am not liking the fact that I am wasting lump by pulling out of grill and dumping into a nearby bucket of water to lower my temps. Thanks.
