Re: What do you use for smoker fuel? Any tips on keeping it lit?
At my yard the property owner put a decent pile of what looks like wood that went through a grinder. It's right by my hives so I suspect it's for my smoker. I start with newspaper and then pine needles, then when that's going good I put in a handful at a time, get them going and repeat another 1-3 depending on how much work I have. Works great, no trouble at all now with smoker. I wouldn't know where to buy something like that, maybe a city yard waste area. Works better than the pellets I bought last year.
