odd - sounds like it should have worked. i'm assuming you were around 250F or so? and you didn't soak the wood first or anything like that?
It might be, as g-man notes, due to putting the wood under the lit charcoal, but i only suggest that as i always put my wood on top and don't have any practical experience doing it the other way. although i cant think of a reason why it shouldn't work?
Right. I was a little hotter than 250 but not much.
Never soaked the wood.
That's the way I've always put the wood in and there's never been an issue before. Dunno.
