I use them a lot for smoking poultry lightly. I really like the way they reinforce the taste of the bird without overpowering. Cob smoked ham, bacon and turkey are very popular in Vermont largely due to the great tasting products sold by Harrington's here.
I typically disperse them throughout the lump.
