Long time "lurker"...first time poster. Wanted to THANK everyone for their helpful posts over the past 2+ years. I purchased my LBGE about 2 years ago and you will have to pry it from my cold dead hands in order to take it away from me. I love this thing...my wife claims its almost as bad as the disease called "GOLF" eggcept much tastier....AND the bonus of my BGE is that I get to use it all year long!
Now to my newly aquired stash of Apple chunks for smokin'....Last weekend my neighbor trimmed his Apple tree so curious guy that I am I stopped over to see what his plans were for the larger sticks....to make a long story short...I scored about 5 years worth ( 2 heaping wheelbarrows full of Applewood for SMOKIN'! Only problem is....it all needs to dry before I can use it.
I split it all up into "lump" size pieces...Anybody have any clever ways of speeding up the drying process...would love to hear them.
