If you order the feeder from thornes you wont need to order fuel for the smoker. I ordered some stuff (Including fuel for my smoker) from them earlier in the year. It arrived in a box packed with shredded cardboard to pad out the box. i now have the fuel that i ordered plus enough shredded cardboard to fuel my smoker for the next 5 years at least.:banghead:

It's good fuel but I find it gives me a bad head when burnt.

I do the same. However check it thoroughly for any glossy coated cardboard, plastic labels or packing tape stuck to the shredded card board. Defiantly not a good idea to smoke bees with burning plastic fumes and it will make a mess in your smoker.
