Tweak the temperature
Thomas J. Story

Tweak the temperature

To decrease heat, scrape away some fuel. To increase heat, or to cook longer than 45 minutes, add 5 to 6 new briquets to both the top and the bottom of the dutch oven (touching lit ones, so they’ll ignite) about every 30 minutes, or add wood embers. If briquets don't light, be ready to ignite them in the chimney.
