I am a newly reformed EggHead... I bought an XL in July and have been experimenting with it every week since then. I am an old long time propane user... The learning curve with lump charcoal has been fun! I am HOOKED on the BGE and the BBQ Guru! Doing chicken wings as we speak for football night.........
The ONLY criticism I have of the BGE is that when I put fine wood chips in for smoke, they only last for about an hour. I have a lot of experience with the box smokers and have done quite a bit of hot smoking. Nice thing with them is when your chips burn up, you open up, re-load, and get your 4 hours of smoke. Does anyone have any "tricks" to make your wood last longer for more smoke? I have always used the fine chips from Lowes and Gander Mountain. Would larger chunks of hickory be necessary??
Thank you in advance.
