Hey everyone, I am sure some of you have already seen the Stick burning system sold at smoke daddy for the pellet pro grills. I am curious why this wouldn't work on my Rec Tec with its existing heat deflector?
In case you have no idea what I am talking about, you can find more information here http://www.smokedaddyinc.com/products/grill-smoker-accessories/item/101-jen-u-wine-jerry-pellet-grill-stick-burning-system.html
I like the idea of this, being able to just drop a few pieces of chunk hickory on the plate and get that extra smoke at say 300 or 350 instead of using my smoke tube, which still only gives you a little extra flavor but not like what I was used to on my WSM before getting the Rec Tec, or even my Pit Barrel Cooker, which has its own unique flavor even without wood.
My biggest concern is, will the wood actually combust and cause me headaches or does the plate only get hot enough to just cause a nice smolder like I am looking for? In the case of the Pellet Pro product, it looks like it works perfectly but they use spacers for the deflector.
