Reusing wood?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I typically use wood chunks in my smoker. On a short smoke, such as country style ribs, I have a significant part of the chunk remaining.

Can you reuse the unused wood?

Sure! Bet you get the thinnest blue ya ever seen with it too :{)

Gots to agree w/ Mr Richtee. I do it all the time. After the smoke, use some tongs to get the chunk out and up it in some water to kill the embers. Let it dry out, then reuse.

Worse situation is that you have homemade lump coal.

Excellent point! PDT_Armataz_01_34.gif And you still get the "flavor" of the wood.

Shouldn't hurt a thing! Just did a good preburn is all!

I use fireplace tongs.. dip it into a bucket of water, and save it for later.

I just know I'm going to regret this, but I have to ask, what is a "Homer Bucket"?
