Okay, so I got some new traps, have a big burner, and got my pot. I don't really want to dye them, and I have heard/read that boiling with wood chips works well as a subsitute for dyes. What type of chips or wood should be used? I saw Fred Meyer has alder chips in bags that are pretty cheap. Is that good or should I just go chop up some spruce from my yard and use that? Also, what ratio of wood to water? Thanks.
