Does anyone use hardwood chunks or small logs for fuel in the egg instead of using lump? I am not talking about adding some chunks of wood for smoke -- I mean using it as your only fuel source (no lump). If so how do you do it without it creating a ton of smoke? Any dangers in cooking this way? I cannot image it would make the egg too hot though I can see it burning the original gasket if the egg remains open.
