TowerClimber.... I am using the element because I have it and, IMHO, I am hoping it will give me a consistent heat.....     I can build a fire and I can keep one going, but doing that in the wood stove or the fire pit is different than in the smoker....   Maybe once I become more accustomed to using the smoker I may shift over to wood and loose the element..... 

 

My brother was going to take the tank and cut it to create a lid and turn it into a smoke generator house for me but he found something I completely forgot I have....

A stainless steel mini grill that will actually be perfect...   It looks like a miniature keg....  It already has a lid and a grid inside so all I have to do is cut a hole for my smoke to head over to the unit....
