Hey smokers up till now, I've been burning lumpwood charcoal as a heat source in my 18 inch wsm, and adding chunks of wood for smoke flavour, but I would like to try using wood instead of charcoal. Has anyone else tried this and was it a success? I read a thread last night by SoFlaQuer(I think) who is pre burning the wood in a separate unit, and then shovelling the hot burning lumps of wood into the smoker after any resins and creosote have burned off, to use for heat and flavour. Any help, tips or pointers appreciated! Andy.
