And, of course, what sort of sauce do you prefer? My daughter made home-cooked Carolina "mopping sauce" which is a vinegar/mustard/brown sugar base. When it's simmering on the stove it STINKS up the house and half the outside it is so intense in aroma. But when it is dressed over pork barbecue there is nothing that can touch it for flavor.

The logs I have are about 18" long and 6" to 8" in diameter. I split them in about 6 pieces length wise and then cut them in 1/2, so the splits are about 9" long. The cook took 8 hrs and I used about 1-1/2 logs.

Sounds efficient compared to mine that would have uses as much wood as i could feed it.

The thickness of the steel and minimum leakage makes all the difference. Nice thin blue smoke or none at all. If you have ever watched BBQ U with all those cookers billowing white smoke, that is exactly what you don't want. Soaking wood chips or chunks will deliver that acrid, nasty white smoke.

Yep. My thought is less smoke is better than more smoke.
