Default Heat Sticks & Hop Bags?

Can I use a hop bag along with heat sticks? Can the hop bag come in contact with the heating element(s) or will that burn a hole in the bag?

Doesn't take much to melt a hop bag. I would be very careful to keep them separated.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"
