    im converting a charcoal smoker into a hybrid charcoal electric smoker, would it be more powerfull to have a hot plate with a stainless basket for woodchips or just to buy an electric skillet and put the chips right in, id be smoking mostly beef and pork so i guess id need it to stay around 225 to 250 degrees constant temp. i noticed ronp100343 converted a single door refrig. into a smoker with a skillet, did this work well? thanks for the help

    1000-1100 watt unit should do the trick. Good luck!
