I used the Hickory as my base wood and smoke wood this time..In the past I would add Hickory to Apple or Cherry as needed...Hickory is very dense so, in order to keep a small hot fire and the cooker under 275*...I had to cut the splits in half and then split them again twice..I ended up with sticks about 2.5" square x 9" long(kindling size)...I put 2-3 at a time in when temps started to fall and this would keep the fire clean and hot and hold the temp 250-275*...FWIW...
Add..I have a Lang 36
