Wood in the firebox

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have an ECB and typically, I just throw my flavor wood (Apple, Cherry, or Hickory chunks in various combinations) right on top of the charcoal. Would it be better to throw them in something like a small coffee can? Not a ton of room in the ECB firepit, but maybe that would get the wood smoldering longer?

I have never used a ecb but when I use chips which is not very often I wrap them in tinfoil and punch some holes in the foil with a toothpick. I have also used a empty tuna or chunk chicken can filled it with chips coverd the top in foil and punch a few holes in the top of the foil.
The chips seem to burn a little longer in the can. That may be a good way for you to go if you have limited space. Hope this helps..icon_smile.gif

P.S. make sure you take the papaer label off the can before using it and if it leaves behind glue remove that as well.
