Wood chunks catching fire
I have a problem where my wood chunks always seem to catch fire eventually and kick out some pretty nasty smelling stuff. I can't seem to avoid it. I soak them and that just delays the flame up. Seems like as soon as the wood dries out it just fires up.
Are my vents/daisywheel open too far? The temp is around 300 when I open it up and there are flames licking whatever it is I am trying to smoke.
Do you guys ONLY use chips/chunks with indirect cooking using the plate setter? Is that what I am doing wrong?
