I've just setup an electric ECB with a Smoke Pistol, hoping to get a slightly better experience with an electric smoker, but one problem:
The Smoke Pistol doesn't work... let me clarify, it doesn't *keep* working. I follow the instructions about lighting the cartridge, letting it burn for a while, poking a hole in it, letting it burn longer, and then inserting into the smoke pistol itself. It seems to work for a bit (really well, too), but after a few minutes, it dies down completely, even at high and/or burst. I know the unit itself is "working" (blowing), and the cartridge releases smoke fine by itself (when upright).
Since I'm about to have some family over, I've resorted to scattering the pellets onto the lava rocks/heating element, and crossing my fingers.
