Really, really big wood chunks.

Howdy folks. Must be summer finally found where my pit got to during that last snowstorm.....

Anyway, had some pecan chunks delivered last week and these things are huge. We're talking large grapefruit, two fists put together.

Anyone have any experience with chunks this large? Makes sense they'll some a little longer than smaller chunks but should I alter my quantities?

Thanks. I don't even want to think about splitting these suckers.

Planning an overnight cook Tuesday.

So that's a self portrait in your avatar Bryan?

Out of all the tools I own I have to confess I do not own a hand axe.

Hmmmm... maybe a chainsaw.

Seriously, how big do you think is too big?

If you can fit it in your smoker it's not too big. I've used small logs and counted them as 2 - 3 chunks without issue.

Second that!

If they fit, they work. If the chunk doesn't fit, you must a-split. #-o

TL: That's the funniest thing I've seen on this board to date. May Johnny rest in peace.

I used the screwdriver and hammer technique when I was fighting the electric no-smoke wars. It won't surprise son Greg to learn I chopped out several chunks out of my driveway in the process.
