i was looking for suggestions on a conatiner for the smoke stix and thoughts on wether or not it'll burn just as quick in the high heat enviornment.
would the often seen/sold cast iron smoker box work for like 3 chunks for at least an hour or 2 do you think?
i don't mind refueling, but every 1/2 hour is too often.
i'm gonna try it out either way, just picking your brain...
A 2 inch piece of smoke stix will fit in the cast iron pot perfectly. It should smolder in there for at least 3-4 hours. I use a piece that size in my FEC100 hanging over the firepot in an open, stainless steel 1 cup measurer. I would use the lid on the smoke box though.
