    When do I add the food to the grill?

    When using the SnS, do you put the food on the grill before you start adjusting the vents, or do you add it after it has reached the target temp?

    I add mine as soon as I got clean smoke going and things rolling.

      Clean smoke first then depends on what I'm cooking.

        How does what your cooking impact your decision Ernest?

        Dr ROK let's say I'm cooking a chicken, my preferred cooking temp is a range, 300 to 375. Once I get good smoke I don't bother too much with cooking temp, I get the chicken on. I wouldn't put ribs on if my temp was at 300 with clean smoke. I'll stabilize at 215 -240 then put the ribs on.
        If I'm baking a peach cobbler I'll stabilize at 350 before I start cooking. Or pizza, I'll get it to 550 degrees and

      I usually stabilize my temp a little first but then maybe my assumption that that was the efficient way to do it is not the preferred method? Only a couple months owning a SnS
      I place my wood chunks just behind the lit stuff so I can have it all situated without catching a face full of smoke.

          Ditto for me.
