Can you use saw dust in smoker tray?
Do you set it on the electric heating element or do you place on a shelf and light it at one or both ends?
I wouldn't use Chainsaw Dust, because of the Bar & Chain oil in it.
If you want to use Chainsaw Dust, drain the Bar Oil out & replace it with cooking oil. Then the Dust won't be toxic.
Ray - I also have a Tube, 12", and a lot of left over chips from when I tried to get the MES tray to function. How do you use chips in the Tube? How firmly do you pack them in? How long does a full tube burn for you in a hot MES?
That Smoker you have looks Big enough that the Amazing Tube Smoker should be Great for you.
Will give you plenty of Great Smoke Flavor!!
Low end of the pellet grill market and many known issues. Don't give up on pellet grills - just get the right one.
That's Great !!
That's the only Amazing Smoker I don't have, but I heard it Awesome!!!
Now you're ready!!
Hmmm, I never used that one, but it says 4 hours at 12", and up to 6 hours when extended to 18".
Somebody else who uses that Tube will have to help you----Maybe "Dirtsailor"---I think he uses that expandable Tube.
You had them flame up and they all burned up. No way they smoldered through that fast. I caught mine flame up this past weekend. I had it exposed to too much air / oxygen and it re-lit. I was able to catch it early because I saw my temps rise on my Tappecue and I went and checked on it.
A few questions for you. What pit temp are you smoking at? Where are you placing the tube in your smoker? What type of smoker? I have all of Todd's tube smokers and I use all of them all the time. The new oval tube does burn faster than the others, but I have never had it last less than 4 hours, non-expanded. 8 expanded. Both figures during a hot smoke with pit temp below 285°. For cold smoke I have ran the expando tube for 12-14 fully expanded.I place the tube near on of my air intakes in my propane smoker, and well above the burner.
Here's a shot of the 18" tube same place in the smoker
