So I have read other posts on using wood chunks on the diffuser, especially the BFG. Anyone do that? I did a cook yesterday put chunks on set to 325, but I think do to high heat initially to get to 325 chunks ignited and burnt to quickly. Great smoke at first just didn't last.
 
I haven't used wood chunks since selling my BGE. Curious as to whether you may have soaked the chunks in water for a few hours before using? Soaking the wood was necessary when used with the BGE to prolong the time that extra smoke would be produced. Just a suggestion.
 
Has anyone tried the Heavy D stick burner on a dual fire? I'm wondering if the fit is OK with the auger coming from the back of the grill.
 
I put wood chips on the diffuser and I can definitely taste a difference. Especially with fruit woods when smoking a pork butt.
 
I use pecan shells. Take a handful or two in a piece of foil, wrap up, and leave the top open for smoke to escape or just punch a few holes in the foil. Place it on my bullseye diffuser. Not sure if I can tell the difference but it sure doesn’t hurt anything.

Dang, I have pecan trees at the new place-going to try that tip!
