I thought that today's pull was gonna be a breeze. The horse droppings were super dry, lit up easily, and created a forrest fire of smoke. With great confidence, we approached the target, I climbed the little ladder, and went at it....OK---here they come, so let 'em have it!!!!Ummmmm---I got the same reaction as if i'd blown T-bone steak smoke into a field hand's nostrils. They seemed to love it! It got so bad, that an orderly retreat was called for....We came away with only 5 frames. At least they were all solid honey on both sides. I know that cow droppings work, so why not horse? I am definitly confused. I just think it's not my day. So, what is the best smoker fuel all around???
