Has anyone ever tried mixing in a few wood chips with the pellets? just wondering if it might help my burn or will it just cause everything to burn too quickly?
If I had that problem (which I don't), and I was taking the 20 minutes to get it lit properly, like I instruct, I would drill a small hole on the bottom left side of my MES, and stick the end of an aquarium pump line right in next to the AMNPS.
And NO I never tried chips in my AMNPS, but I believe it would be much harder to burn chips in an AMNPS than pellets.
