MES 20070910 briquet in chip tray

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Does anyone see a problem with putting a lit briquet in the chip tray to assure the wood chips smoke?  I suspect I could also add a briquet through the side loader too, with chips, everytime I load chips.  Happy to have someone point out the flaw in my plan.

yeah, you can put a briquette in the chip tray.  It will leave a smoke ring on the meat but it won't really change the flavor.  My MES smoked fine so it didn't really change how much smoke came from the chips.  I used to start with 3 briquettes in the chip tray then add one every 1.5 hours to get a smoke ring.
