    Chunks are best for your type of rig. Chips and dust are for wattburners is my call.

    When I was usin my sfb, I put a 9x9 cake pan in there with chips, covered with foil an 3 er 4 holes poked in it, worked fine. My be worth a shot. I use chunk when I can, but got alota chips from runin branchs through the chipper so use both.

    On my chargriller, I burn split logs. Live fire is better than smoldering chips or chunks.

    Chunks or splits in the sfb. Don't worry about blowing them out, if they are burning, they are smoking. If you smell smoke, you're getting flavor, even if you don't see the smoke. Don't throw out those chips though. They are good mulch for landscaping.
