Going ranch-style is what we call fueling your hibachito with wood gathered from your immediate surroundings, like when you’re out of proper charcoal. In Austin, we’re lucky to be embedded in great cooking woods, like pecan, oak + mesquite.  Scrounging for cooking wood can be fun, but make sure not to use pine, cedar or elm because your food will come out whackadoodle.
