Hi fellow smokers,
A friend of mine gave me his Little Chief Model 9900 smoker (see http://i.imgur.com/hQDM5Hs.jpg for a pic of the box) and I'm eager to get started on smoking. Now, as I figure, the manufacturer wants you to buy and use their pellets. But, I have an old apple tree that fell in my back yard and I've chopped up the wood into logs. I want to know if I can make use of that apple wood in this little smoker by just cutting the wood into small enough pieces. Is this totally out of the question with this type of smoker, and I must use the pellets?
