Hi Walt - I remember you talking about your experimenting.  I would be interested in seeing your fire box; maybe others would be as well.

I would love to do that, but my lawyer tells me not to until he gets the patent application filed.  Then after the application is filed and the product is protected my lawyer will gladly show it to you and if you copy it and use it, or sell it, then my lawyer will get to sue you or any other individual or company for patent infringement. :D

Anyone have pictures of what the wood should look like after a smoke?  I generally spread 3 pieces evenly the length of the firebox........1 at the front, 1 in the middle and 1 at the back.

I have done smokes where all 3 were nothing but ash, which makes me think they caught on fire and burned up. Other times, I've had one ashy and the others just charred black like charcoal.

I would not worry too much about what the wood looks like after a smoke. If you are getting good flavor, be happy and enjoy.  I typically get all ash and once in a while, a lump of charcoal. I worry more about great billows of thick smoke and so far have not had that experience.

I almost always get charcoal...  I love it because I wait until I know positively it's out and then throw it into my charcoal bin and use it for grilling.  :)  About the only time it doesn't come out as charcoal is if I leave the door open when I'm done smoking... the residual heat and influx of oxygen will cause it to turn to ash.

Thanks LarryD. I've done the foil boats for the last few smokes and am getting charcoal every time. If not in the boat, it's mostly ash.

The end look of the wood will also depend on the length of the smoke.  Charcoal for ribs and ash for butt and brisket would be normal results.
