The wood is hickory - have to buy the Charcoal Companion pre packs, cos we dont have hickory growing here.
I ran a cigarette lighter over the "stuff" and it fizzled and left a crusty ash.
It burned pretty easily.
With the chunks, I'm wondering how others do it - am i in danger of getting some nasty flavour from placing the chunks in at the same time as the food?
I wouldnt have thought so, but I'm thinking, just maybe this could have something to do with it.
