Spring brings green grass, leaves, weeds and in my case..... smokey pots! I fired my first barrel of the season this weekend. After the initial firing, I was not happy with the outcome. Too much oxidation turned the pots mostly white again in spite of some impressive smoke. So while the barrel was still quite hot, I loaded on the barn straw and dry leaves and more sawdust and got a better result.
