How do you tell, spent chips?
How do you tell when your smoking wood chips are spent? Do they crumble or something?
I just cleaned my grill and pulled the foil container off of the one burner from the last time I "smoked" something and added the smoke flavor. I opened it and most of the chips were blackened, but none were ash or fell apart when squeezed. Were they alright to use again? Is it just not worth it because maybe they'll only last ten minutes next time?
How long are wood chips usually good for?
