Building A Fire In Your Smoker – creating the positive draft flow

A week ago I had a ton of great barbecue questions come in, so I shot a few videos answering them.

On question was all about controlling and building a fire – and feeding the fire vs the the vent at the top of cooker.

A Backwoods model is the perfect smoker to demonstrate this on, so I shot this video at a contest this past weekend.

It all comes down to creating the positive draft flow and building a fire that is easy to manage.

I’m going to be shooting more videos coming up, so if there is any questions you have just email me at malcom@killerhogs.com

  2. Malcolm, discovered your website yesterday and have poured through the many recipes, videos, tips, etc. I also ordered your rub and sauce to give it a whirl. Thanks very much for “giving back” to those of us who are beginner, yet serious barbeque enthusiasts. Do you have a recipe for prep and smoke of a bone-in pork loin? Thanks again for sharing your “sperience” with everyone.
