  1. OK, Question for the day: We will be sawing Hard Maple tomorrow so chips and chunks will not be a problem. Anybody use these for baby back ribs?

    Oh Yeah!  All of my smoking is done with maple.  Other woods are added, but even my charcoal is made from maple.

    Someone here once commented about cutting up woods with a chain saw.  Most chain saws need oil to keep the chain blades from binding up.  He suggested using a vegetable oil rather than motor oil.
