OK, been here a few months. Have not seen this topic. I am dying to try it, and thought I would ask you guys for feedback. Has anyone ever fired an egg with wood chunks instead of lump? My idea is to fill it fuller than with lump, light it off, let it burn for a while, and then have a nice bed of coals. The Publix mesquite chunk bag said it would work, and said it burns hotter than lump. Temp control in an egg is easy enough, so I don't see a problem there. Don't think it will hurt the egg any. On the plus side, try something new. Maybe some smoke flavor. Maybe cheaper than lump if you get the wood yourself.
Anybody ever try this? CenTex? Anybody else?
