    Hey all,

    So I just got an order from Amazon in last night and to my surprised, I placed an order for Pecan wood chips instead of wood chunks...my question is whether I can use these on my WSM somehow??

    Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks!

    Sure, you can ventalitate an empty bean can put some chips in it and put near the fire. You can put them in a piece of tin foil roll it up like a snake and light one end, if you have anytype of small metal pan or box thats ventilated works fine. I use them when grilling, near the end of the cook, I throw some on the dying coals at the end of the pit.

    I might offer here, I just wrote a burning critique on some of their western pellets and I saw and noted here that they were nearly giving them away now. IF those the western pecan chips like I recieved they were either over dried in the kiln or they are old chips. They are light as a feather and flash up ridiciously easy You need to be careful and/or watchful if you have the same chips. The were physically blowing the reload tube out of the MES30, it was a lot of fun for a country boy for a few times....>LOL

    I use apple chips sometimes along with hickory chunks. I just sprinkle them all round the charcoal and they add some nice flavor. I always start in the middle when I light up the charcoal, so when I use the chips I spread them out ward from the middle. Seems to work for me.
