Tube smoker lighting process?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

New on here. Have a square tube smoker 16 inches long, with a 2 3/8 inside dimension I made quite a few years ago from some heavy perforated sheet. Only tried using it a couple times. Just wondering what process you use to light your tube smokers. I have both pellets and chips. What's everybody else using? Thanks for any advice. Going to try to do a 12lb turkey and 2 tri tips tomorrow in an old cabinet unit I got going yesterday.

I'll get a pic in the morning. I light it with a propane torch as well for 30 seconds to a minute. This time I let it burn a little longer than usual, about 12 min. Seemed to work pretty well. That was at 5:00 pm, still a nice stream of light smoke. Tube was only about 1/4 full of hickory pellets.
