HOW TO COOK WITH JUST CHUNKS To retain the natural flavor, we recommend building your fire without lighter fluid. Instead, use a solid fire starter. Stack dry cooking chunks in a pyramid on top of a solid fire starter leaving an edge exposed. Then light the fire starter. Let the chunks burn for approximately 15 to 20 minutes with the lid and all vents open. For a milder flavor, allow additional time for the wood to cook down. Close the vents and lid. Wait about one minute for flame to subside, then open lid and spread chunks evenly. Place food on the grill and close the lid. Cooking with the lid closed prevents flare-ups and allows the wood to give better smoke flavor to the foods cooked. HOW TO USE WITH CHARCOAL We recommend cooking the natural way by using lump charcoal instead of briquets and using a solid fire starter instead of fluid to avoid having any chemicals influence your food. Light the charcoal using your preferred method. Several minutes prior to cooking, add 3-5 dry chunks on a standard grill. Add more for large smokers. Continue to add chunks every 20-30 minutes during the cooking process to infuse that great smoke flavor.
