Do you bury wood chunks? Set them on top?
What is your setup like regarding wood chunks?

I usually bury now since I no longer have an offset. With the old offset, I'd go right on top. With the UDS though, I have hinged grates so in theory I could add wood right on top if I wanted to. Haven't tried it yet..

I bury some and put some on top after I dump the hot coals in my fire basket.

In the UDS I bury 4-5 fist sized pieces and drop on on top when the pork hits the pit.
If I'm cooking a brisket on the UDS I take a piece of Mesquite about 3" across and 8 " tall it goes into the middle standing on end and the lump gets packed around it. It gives me just the right amount of smoke over the whole cook.

Bury. Often chunks laid on top will burst into flames due to exposure to air resulting in a spike in temps.

Buried, but peeking out.

Bury a few and lay a couple on top. No reasoning behind the two on top, just looks good to me.

I bury 4 to 5 fist sized chunks of wood in my charcoal.

Buried initially, toss upon the fire when needed to stoke more smoke. I also have been known to place a chunk or two in the chimney starter when building the initial fire. No rules, do whatever you want.

On my WSM i do a combo of bury & placing on top. On my KJ I just place on top.

I light 2 spots in my egg, put a chunk on each hot spot and wait for thin blue.
