The secret (not secret) of running an off set smoker is a small hot fire and a good air flow. I leave the door open and the flue fully open. I watch the fire, I watch the chimney to make sure I can’t see smoke which is the sign of a dirty fire. My Yoder Smokers has a double insulated fire box. It’s almost too easy to cook on. It’s also not hungry for wood. I use apple for the coal base, pecan and cherry for smoking.
