    Hello all,

    I grabbed an open bag of Mesquite chips and dumped some in the holder, and noticed there was a fair amount of dust on the chips. It is very light like powder. Has anyone ever seen this? I'm wondering if they are ok.

    They will still be fine. Usually bottom of bags always have some dust. Bag may have just been upside down, so settled there

    If you truly are using chips, then this doesn't apply, but if you are using pellets and are planning to burn them in a tray or tube, then it is relevant.
