Just wondering how much charcoal/briquettes people are going through on their offset smoker?
Just average time and weight is all im asking for? I understand weather will have a big influence

Very roughly, for me on a Tri-fire, I think I used 2 bags, (8kg) with redgum wood chunks as well, for about a 6 hour brisket cook. Temp between 200-300f

I did a Brisket on Sunday that Cooked for 11 hours and I recon I used about enough to fill three chimney's not much at all. I guess that would be enough to fill a ten litre bucket

After sealing up the smoker with the high temp silicone and fireblack gasket for all doors, and instaling thicker tuning plates i managed to get even tenp to 1-2c diference (hotter away from firebox) and used 6kg of heatbeads for 8hrs held temp for another hour after that before it started to drop of.
Much better than before
