I prefer lump. I usually burn KB tho. I'm going to make somelump when it cools off some.
When you make your own. It doesn't matter much what you start with as long as it is hard wood.
I have 1 30 gal barrel. set it on a cender block. I fill it up with cut up pieces, Then take a 55 gal barrel with a bunck of holes near the bottom. But all the way around the 55 gal drum. Put it upside down over the 30 gal drum. Then flip them over without geiing anything between them, Now the 30 gal is inside the 55 gal with the 30 upside down. Pack the remander of the 55 gal full of scrap. trigs limps boards. the fuller the better. Take the removeable top from the 55 gal and cut a roundish hole in the middle and attach a piece of 6' stove pipe to it. Litte the 55 gal and attach the top. Plan on it burning for 20-24 hours. Wait for it to cool before you open it up. You will then have a bunch of lump ready to go.
