Just wondering how many of you guy's use chips while using the minion method? It sounds like everybody uses chunks.

If you use chips they can be dispersed throughout the ring of charcoal. The goal, with chunks, chips, and the charcoal is to not have it all burn at the same time. So, if you place the chips throughout the charcoal you can prevent them all going up in smoke at the same time. However, chunks are the preferred way to go.

Thank's guy's, figured that be the way to go.

i can only find some woods up here in chip form so i use both and have had equal success. i will put some coal in and then a handfull of chips, keep repeating the process until the basket is full.

chunks are easier, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do.

If you have to add fuel do you add chips/chunks as well?
