adding more lump to the egg

this week I am a serial smoker. I'm cooking several shoulders for our high school mission trip. I have the first one on now, and it should be done sometime tomorrow morning.

I doubt there will be enough lump remaining to smoke the next one starting tomrorrow afternoon. can I add more lump on top of the burning lump, or should I cap the egg and let the fire go out, then add charcoal, and re-light?

thanks!

Morning Ken:

Just add on top of the remaining (lit) lump...I have done this many times with no issue.
Have a GREAT day!

Once you dump it on top, wait a while for the smoke to clear and smell good before putting on your next shoulder.

Make sure to wait 45 minutes to an hour for VOC's from new lump to burn off, if you don't the meat will taste funny and not in a Ha-Ha way.
