Q: Dear Dr. BBQ,
I have a char griller pro-smoker. I also just got a Big Green Egg and have been reading up on how to build a fire for the BGE. Do you have any suggestions on how to build a good low and slow fire for the char griller? It uses an off-set fire box.
A: Hi Michael,
You have the complete opposite ends of the scale in a Big Green Egg and a char griller. The Egg is easy and can run pretty much unattended for many hours but the char griller will always require your attention pretty much full time. Try using a pile of briquettes and controlling the temp by the dampers. You may get to a 1 to 1.5 hour cycle but that”s about as good as it will ever get.
