I'll try and smoke some more marlin on Thursday and use only wood chips...

This was the 450 lb beast we got today:

I would say that's a keeper!

Happy smoken.

I had to smoke a rib eye at work and did the half pellet and half wood chips again, but this time I just I didn't sort out the larger pieces. My 12" amnts usually takes about four hours to use all of its pellets; today, with larger wood chips it took three hours to use most of its fuel.

As it was nearing the end of its burn I picked up the tube shook the ashes out and accumulated all the lit pellets at the capped end and refueled with straight wood chips. So now it was burning back to the open end with straight wood chips. Worked fine...
