Cobb recommends using briquettes. Probably because of the consistent size with briquettes and probably because the heat would be more even. But I do notice a LOT of ash using briquettes.

Not much room for fuel as the charcoal basket is only 7" round, with 5-6" vertical height between the bottom of the basket and the grill. Don't think wood would work very well and cleanup would be a lot messier.

I'll play with using hardwood lump charcoal and see how that works out.
