Hi all,

I am wondering if you can use lump with an offset or just wood? Or both perhaps and what are the pros and cons? Most people seem to use wood. And what kind of wood would you use in VIC without blowing the budget?

Any thoughts are appreciated.

Cheers

Yes you can. In fact using Lump or Robot turds etc can be easier to manage temps.
I do this often adding Banksia cones for smoke.

Thanks, make sense. Bit less fire management too I would think with lump burning longer.

I usually use a bed of beads or lump as a base and throw a piece of timber on top. The size you get in those 15-20kg bags, but I usually split it in half again. Can always throw another smaller piece on if needed.

Yep. Redgum. I'd try other stuff but nowhere near me to get any.

Is the red gum sold in servos suitable for use?

Yep. That's what I use. Don't use redgum posts from old fences. They've probably been treated once upon a time.
Bags may be cheaper from Bunnnings if you're near one.
But that'll cost you more in the long run, as you'll get a bag of redgum, sausage in bread from the bbq and a crapload of other stuff you don't actually need from Bunnings. :-)
