    You probably could but starting briquettes is probably easier initially. I cooked a pork butt on Monday on mine and started the fire with weber briquettes with comp logs on top and when I refueled I just used comp logs.

    This might be a stupid question but if they burn longer why not just use all competition char logs?

    I did do my rib cook today using weber briquettes and B&B comp logs and it turned out great. Grill was very easy to dial in and held temps very well. I did add a few more comp logs close to the five hour mark and it's still going now at about 8:30 pm. I started the cook at about 12:30 pm. Very impressed with this cooker.

    For this experiment i set the target at 250F. When smoking I usually target ~260 +/- 15F

    What was your target temp you smoked at? I plan on smoking on my M1 for the first time today and was also going to use Weber briquettes plus the B&B comp logs on top. I do not have a pit controller so this will just be done with the vents. I think I will try smoking at around 275.

    Which briquettes did you use. We have found that different briquettes have different burn times.

    Charcoal smoking tests

    Hi All - I have been experimenting with charcoal smoking for those times don’t have time to fully feed the fire (or for after the meat gets wrapped) and thought I’d share. A completely full firebox basket of charcoal Briquettes With wood chunks mixed in using a Pit Viper fan lasted almost exactly 5 hours at target temp. I have seen others recommend a top layer of competition char-logs on top to extend the time, so I’d be interested in experimenting with those and lump next time (was out of lump) to see impact.
