add pecan chips to chicken
It must be heck having to pick out those pecan chips when it's time to eat!

Sowwy....anyway - where did you buy your pecan?

Jeff, good for you. It really kicks up gas grilling, doesn't it? And like someone else mentioned, there is no need to soak wood chunks or chips. If you get a chance to buy chunks do that. Try some Hickory but only use a chunk or two. REALLY smoky and wonderful! Do you indirect cook at all?

Seriously, is there any advantage to a smoke box over tin foil? Does it smolder the chips better, make them last longer..... anything? Do I need one? OK, I know. I need one

Nope no read advantage. Do you want to pay up front and not have to deal with disposable foil or would you rather be just use foil each time and not have to shell out $5 all at once. Both methods will work equally well though as far as getting smoke on your food.

I suppose it would be nice to have something you can use over and over.
Can you open it easily once it has been heated, to add more chips?

Well at least this would get more use than if I bought a potato ricer

Even at only needing a potato ricer once a year I'd use it more because I use chunks versus chips. Chunks wouldn't fit. Now, have I talked you out of it?

Well, that's a very good point you have there.
But I don't even know where to get chunks around here..... And they could always be broken down to fit if I ever find them
