I have a new smokin-it electric smoker. My understanding is that you put your wood in your fire box at start up and that is it. So if I start off with wood that is not pre lit a bit I can't see how I can get TBS? Did that make sense? As far as I know with the electric you put the wood in at start up and don't ad at all. So I initially get thick smoke. then it mellows out. Any input is appreciated.
