Reusing Wood?
Took a ride down to Standard Wood and purchased a bag of fruit wood. They told me it was a mix of apple and cherry. Anyway there are some pretty big chunks in the bag so my question is:

Can I reuse the wood that is not totally burned after a smoke?

Also does it matter if I throw in one extra large chunk or are 2 or 3 smaller chunks better? I am using a UDS.

Thanks
Sheldon

Re: Reusing Wood?
I find that smaller chunks work better in my BDS. I do reuse the wood that has not burned all the way.

I always collect my unburnt fuel (briquettes/wood) in my chimney and use them to start my next cook.

How much is a bag of apple wood and cherry wood at standard woods? I was thinking about going to pick some up when I do a couple of pork butts next week.

They have a big pile of what they call fruit wood. Big chucks, small logs, and big logs. They said it was a mix of apple and cherry. He filled up a big white bag for $15 with mostly big chucks.

Re: Reusing Wood?
Man, Jamie and those guys are the best! After years of using Wallie World brand chunks and flakes, I got turned on to good wood by Vic (no1plumber) that brought some by from his yard. Well since he won't let me cut down all of his trees, I've started using stuff from Standard. They are always glad to see folks from the UBBQA and give us a great product at a great price...
