Lol. Touche.

Seriously, the whole lot doesn't burn. Matter of fact I might use less wood than someone using chunks. In an 8 hour cook I might use 1/4 of a log if that.

Could it be that a lot of these guys are a little bit right.
OR
Are they a little bit wrong?

My women folks like light smoke so I'm a blue smoke fan (cause a big fan of keeping women folks happy.)

I just found out I might be from Georgia or Alabama . . .

My family did come to Texas from Georgia in the 80s . . . (1880s).

When I started on this group was smoking with peach wood. I hunted where a friend had a peach orchard so free peach wood was available (along with fantastic peaches).

Then started hunting in Arkansas and hickory wood was available. So I then started smoking with hickory.

Then my son brought me a truckload of pecan wood for Father's Day a few years ago and
. . . you got it . . . I then switched to pecan.

Recently restocked my pecan stash when in Arkansas and my hunting partner found a pecan tree down.
Was kinda hoping to score some free hickory wood that trip.

After looking at all that guess I'm mostly just a cheap farker.

Lmfao! I'll be a cheap, keep the women (family) Farker with you. I get my pecan free when the farms prune the tress in January or so. I will stop and pick up limbs from fallen mesquite trees, I will pick up fruit wood wherever I can find it. I have gone to the city dump and come back with mulberry, plum, pecan, mesquite and even oak. People just don't know what the hell they are throwing away!

Too funny.

Bob

Wow, 13 pages on TBS. Only read the first page.

My take on BBQ. I've come to the conclusion that everything you add to your cook changes the outcome of the final cook. Well Duh
You want everything you add to complaint your food, not overpower it. So basically, less is more. And that includes smoke.
I've heard pellets don't add enough smoke. Never tried them so just something many say here. That could be the exception.

Using my UDS, I eliminated some of the white smoke and grease fires by putting a pizza pan 4" under my grate. Still get some.

I get less White smoke when I raise my temps. BTW: I don't use as much Pecan wood as I once did.

I start with wood and lump charcoal, but when It's gone I usually don't add much more wood. Meat gets darker than I want with too much wood.
