Fuel for Mini- Smokers

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Welded up my Mini-Smoker this weekend, and am ready to start figuring out her quirks when it come to fire.   


For you mini-smoker operators out there,  what kind of fuel do you use?  Charcoal?  Lump?  Sticks?    What works for you and what have you found that doesn't work?

i use wood chunks. i cut a log into 2" or 3" long sections and then split it like normal and use a few chunks at a time.

I would love to see a pic of your mini-smoker to determine the best source of fuel for it.  Without that pic I cannot give you an informed decision or options.  Can you put one up quick enough?
