I searched around the forum a bit trying to find some previous posts on this subject, but came up with nothing--but here is what I was wondering:
I got a MES 40 almost a week ago Christmas and since, I've spent hours on this site and scouring the Internet looking for tips and just background info on it. One I found suggested adding a crumbled charcoal briquette to the smoke tray with your hardwood chips.
Is there an advantage or reason why. This might have been suggested by someone having a problem burning all of the wood chips thoroughly.
