I have been using chunks from the local home depot. I smoked some pork belly last night to test some things out. Used lump to get started then fed her with the apple chunks works a lot better. Need to find a source for splits in my area or online. Any suggestions? I am going to my local butcher tomorrow I may try the country ribs but there is no way I can fit a beer can in a Cornish hens butt. TOO BOO KOO!!
