kadeal, not sure what you have around the place but I would not spend money on Smoker fuel. So here is what I have used, Card board, cut in strip as long as the smoker is tall the way so the air flows up thru the center of the card board, roll it up light the bottom. Leaves, straw, ferns, wood shavings from my planner, pine needles, grass from the lawn mower. The better is leaves or grass. did you ever toss a brown cardboard box in the trash? Viola, smoker fuel. do you bag grass or leaves/ smoker fuel. if none of these are options, find a friend or co-worker, or relative with a lawn or some trees, bag some up and try some different things. Ya all natural if good, save the dime for a better queen one day.This spring I was using blue shop towels and a commercial smoker product from Mann Lake. Quit the shop towels. Lately been using brown paper as a starter and Mann's product.Going to try all natural next time.
