I'm with Roxy on this one. Lump to start. One unlit chimney and then a lit chimney dumped onto it. From then on it's all wood. Oak, Pecan, Wild Cherry and occasionally some Hickory.

I bet you Lychee is really nice...does it add a nice bit of something-something when you use it Hiloboy?

That's what I figured...I wish we could get some of these exotic island woods you guys use.

Question for you...what is kiawe? Is that what we would refer to as kiwi? Probably a stupid question, but I'll never know if I don't ask! :wink:

You could try to order from here, $20 to the USA, not sure what he would charge to Canada.

He's a really nice guy...spoke with him a while back when I found his site. He said he has a lot of trouble getting it into Canada, but is looking into finding a way...

Perhaps one of our wood suppliers around here might have a way to help?!?!? :wink:
