Chunks vs Chips

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I have always used chips in my gas smoker ( Brinkman Vertical Propane Smoker).  I needed more and ordered chunks my mistake. I was wondering if anyone has or does us chunks in a propane smoker.  I am thinking if should still work.  Heat is heat, but was wondering??

I use a mix of both, the chips get smoking faster and burn out then the chunks take over.  If I have too many chunks I always can get out the hatchet to make some chips.


It seems to work for me.


Good luck,

I like to use both also. I put some chips in to get the smoke going quicker and have some larger chunks that catch up after. If the chunks are too big I just get my hatchet and split them up smaller.

Same here! Both, but mostly chunks.

Yes, what they all said.


I prefer chunks in my gasser.  They last much longer.  Sometimes I find a wood I want and it is only available in chips.

Like everyone else here is saying I have been using both for years now.
