When I smoke in the WFO, I allow the oven temp. the drop down to about 200 degrees, I use an old Weber fire pan drilled with holes filled with smothering charcoal. I place the pan in the back of the oven, build an elevated platform of fire brick to place the wire grill from the Weber on and put in my meat. Use a small shovel for fine or sawdust shaving or long tongs for chunks, then I take a bamboo pipe and blow air in the hole of the fire pan so the charcoal in the bottom of the pan starts to glow and smoke starts to rise, close the door and let smoke for an hour, after an hour, I repeat the blowing of the coals to revive the fire, if using chunks I rotate, sawdust I will add more. After 3 hours, I take the coals out, wrap the meat in foil, place the meat back in the oven to finish cook in its own juices.
