I'm not opposed to using a chain saw, I'm just not sure how I'm going to keep the pieces still while sawing them. Anyone have a homemade concoction they use they'd like to share?
I use my chop saw (mitre saw) to cut up small pieces of wood for smoking chunks. Use a rough-cut blade, and don't cut too fast -- that wood is hard.
