Robert Gerrish Writes...
"I couldn't remember the briquet to temperature ratio. I thought it was
"one birquet for each 20 degrees, but my resource says to use one briquet
"for each 40 degrees. 250 degrees would use use about 6 briquets.
When using a Dutch Oven, the guidline is one briquette for each 25 degrees F.
When cooking in an enclosed box oven, it becomes one briquette for each 50
The reason is that the DO has the coals exposed to the outside air, where
a percentage of the heat is lost. In a box oven, the coals are INSIDE the
oven, so all the heat can go into cooking.
