Been egging for awhile but want to kick it up a notch. Two questions:[p]1. Does v-rack and drip pan on the standard grid achieve the same results as that raised grid thing I see in the BGE store?[p]2. Where's a good place to get wood chunks (not chips) in the Atlanta area-- Im somewhat of a purist but am doing a butt and want to try something different.[p]Thanks in advance--keep on egging![p]I am,[p]Ogre


  • Ogre,
    Can't answer specific Atlanta questions but can say[p]1) I've used a v rack, a pan, and good old rolled up tin foil many times and haven't noticed much difference.[p]2) Any BBQ Galore (chain store) has medium sized wood chunks by the bag....

  • Ogre, Just about any Kroger sells Mesquite and Hickory chunks. Several Eggers around me use them and they work great. Smokin Joe[p]

    Smokin Joe,
    Must be different where youre at- Ive only found chips but no chunks. Thanks for the help though- maybe Ill just expand my search area![p] Ogre[p]

  • Ogre, Where are you? I'm in Suwanee, GA (for now)... I've moved a lot on the corporate relo merry-go-round. Other sources could be Home Depot especially in the Spring when they feature grilling products, smokers etc. They usually have both chunks & chips. Other possibilities are BBQ Galore stores, Wal-Mart or even some local fire wood spot??? Sometime these fire wood guys have mesquite (in the Southwest states) and others have hickory (in the Southeast states). You might be able to buy foot longs and cut them to the size you want??? Good luck in your search. Keep us posted when/where you find your wood. Smokin Joe[p]
