Before getting my new MES 40, I did some pretty decent indirect smoking on my Char Grill using Trader Joe's charcoal. It is basically hickory chips and hickory sawdust held together with starch as the binder. It producer a very smooth hickory taste, burned very slow and lasted long time. Easily smoked a 12 lb. turkey with only about 15-20 briquettes. My question is, "would there be a problem with using one of the briquettes in my MES instead of a handful of chips?"
