Propane heating element in wood smoker?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I have a second hand, home made smoker. It is a wood/charcoal burner with sfb. It smokes great, but for long smokes it gets tough to regulate sometimes...so here's my question(s).
Has anyone put a propane burner in anything like this? I would use wood/charcoal for the first part of the smoke, but if I choose I would like the option to switch to the propane to save wood.
Would it be best to put it in the sfb or in the smoke chamber?

In the SFB is where I would put it.  Should work great.  You can use a pan filled with chips on the burner for smoker generation too.

I agree the SFB would be the best place for the burner. You will have to cover it to keep ashes out of the burner, or make it removable.
