Any pics of your set up? I would think you could have a small steel box welded up that you could put above the burner to put your wood chips in. The afterburner is cool looking but definitely isnt anything fancy. Post up some pictures of how your setup looks please

Propane is awfully convenient, I must say.  Certainly makes me smoke stuff more often.  But nothing beats a good wood or hard lump fire for flavor, so I like to have the flexibility to flip back and forth.


I just took a side burner off of a propane grill (never use 'em anyway), and mounted it in the bottom of the coal bowl of a New Braunfels upright.  Moved the control dial from another old, dying grill over to the upright and bolted it under the bottom lip of the smoker, and -- viola! -- a propane upright that I can change back and forth to coal/wood fired any time I like!  Easy Peasy!




Of course, she doesn't look this pretty anymore...
