    don't have time to search but my hickory chunks keep catching on fire......and it doesn't look like much smoke is being produced. what can I do to stop that or do I not need to worry.

    Doing a boston for pulled pork.

    9x9 cake pan just a cheap steel one from the dollar store, put in the chunks, cover with aluminum foil, poke bout 3 ta 5 holes in the foil. After the smoke dies way off, take the foil off an shake the pan a bit, will smoke more after that. Way I do it.
