Wood flareups

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I'm using my GOSM propane smoker and have been having issues with my wood chunks flaring up and catching fire.  This obviously produces a lot of smoke and seems to hinder the smoking/flavor of what i'm making.  Is there anything I can do to prevent this?  I tried foiling my wood tray and poking some holes but that seems to still flare up as well.

 

I don't soak the wood.  I was thinking about setting the wood chip box on the side next to the flame, but will that be good enough to ignite the wood enough to produce the smoke?

I've got the smaller model, not the big block or wide.
