I have tried it 3 times for cold smoking and it burns out every time. I used it with the chip loader in and the chip pan in and put it on the very bottom of the smoker beside the chip pan and it burned out. I kept it in the same spot and pulled the chip pan and the loader out still burned out. I kept it in the same spot and pulled the chip pan but left the loader in and just pulled it out a little and it burned out. Not even one row of fully burned pellets yet. I microwaved the pellets for 45 secs then light the pellets with a torch and let the flame go for about 5 mins then blow it out and light again and blow out again so there is 3/4" of ashes to burn. Could somebody help me with this.
