Master of the Pit

Alas, not long. Pellets about 45 minutes, chips about an hour, slices about 2 hours....How long do the chunks last after they get to smoking?
It's why I seldom use the grease/fat "slide" pan....I want an easier way to replenish that smoking wood. You take them out as charcoal...they've been smoking only...you don't want them burning to ash like what happens in your crucible/firepot.
What makes the new Camp Chef Pro models so interesting is they utilize this idea in a pull-out drawer so replenishing this smoker wood is easy, even with all the grates fully loaded with meat and the "slide pan" in place.
