    Pete I'm not familiar with your smoker, but if you use the search function there's bound to be a few answers. Wild guess is you may need a pellet tube or tray to coexist with you smoker.

    Hmm.. what do the chips look like after you notice no smoke? Are they totally burnt up then?
     
  4. The chips are black but not burnt up if i stir them they will give me smoke for a short time at 225

    Does your food have any kind of smokey flavor? Just because your not seeing smoke doesn't necessarily mean it's not smoking. TBS can be hard to see sometimes.

    I don't think the electric or propane smokers produce smoke rings.
     
  8. I agree

    Only have read about electric smokers like yours. I don't hear much about vent mods for propane ones
     

  16. At 9:07 it shows the perfect amount of smoke called TBS (thin blue smoke)
    If you want more pronounced smoke flavor add an Amaz-N pellet smoker.

    Electrics have a hard time getting good smoke ring, but gas smokers have no problem in that area.
     
  18. I have a Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite electric smoker and I get a smoke ring with Mesquite wood. I have never used a gas smoker so I have no idea regarding intake vent management with gas. I just bought the OK Joe so I hear to learn about offset smokin.

    I have the smoke hollow pro series 44inch propane smoker. I installed the mailbox mod and use an a-maze-in 5x8 smoke tray and get about 10 solid hours of perfect smoke using smoke pellets. The built in trays and wood chips require to much maintenance to keep a good smoke going in these smokers.
