Well yesterday I fired up my Classic as I always do, and added some peach wood chunks to my ash pan as I always do, but when I opened the firebox door later I discovered the woo had never caught fire and was just sitting in the ash. I've used this wood before and never had a problem, so I don't think it's the wood. Do I need to actually light the wood as well, or should just setting in the ash pan be sufficient?

Thank you in advance.

What temp were you running at? If you are running at a lower temp, sometimes it will not catch your smoking wood. To help with that, shake your charcoal grate to get some embers on the wood. That always works for me.

I was running at 225, but normally I have no problem. It was a shock to open the door and see them sitting there unburned.

Never had that happen before? I always shake my grate real good when ever adding wood.

weird
I never had that problem, in fact my chunks tend to disappear too fast.
Was the wood wet?

I always bump the grate and let the charcoal embers fall all over the wood and wood starts smoldering within minutes . what are you using in the chute charcoal or lump ?

So far only been using charcoal, but trying out lump is on my To-Do list.
