So how does everybody keep their wood chunks from burning in an offset smoker? I have a SnP and use a charcoal basket. I place the wood chunks on a grate that is above and to the side of the basket. Every piece I put in yesterday caught on fire within 10-20 mintues. I was using larger chunks, roughly in the 6"x6" range. So what can I do to keep the wood from burning up? The coals seem like they are way to hot but I was barely able to get the cooking chamber above 230 in the cooking chamber. Any ideas?
