Wood Chips for (Gas, Charcoal, Electric) is there a difference?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Hi Everyone.

 

My smoker is a Masterbuilt Digital Electric Smokehouse 30".  I went to Lowes to buy wood chips and all they had was Cowboy brand woodchips.  I grabbed a few bags of varying wood types to experiment with different flavors.  When I got home, I noticed that the bags said for use in gas and charcoal grills.  See link.

Is this going to be a problem for my smoker?  Will these work or should I return them?  Also... Has anyone ever used this brand before and what was your take on them.

 

Thanks for any information or advice fellow smokers.

I think all wood is the same.. apple is apple etc... there may be a difference in the size of the chips that may work better in different smokers.... I use Big Chief wood chips in my MES and they work OK.... I have even used wood chips in the AMNPS smoke generator.. they work marginally well if they are dried very dry...
Give them a try.... use a small amount, like a 1/4 cup at a time so they don't burst into flame.... chips will burn under the right conditions where sawdust will usually smolder...
