    can i use charcoal and propane at the same time?

    Yes but you will need to experiment in order to find the best amount so you can control the temps, I have had too many chunks in mine during the summer and ran a lot hotter than I wanted

    Welcome ,I have a electric smoker and a pellet smoker, I can use a tube with pellets in the electric and can walk away from both without worrying if something is going to fail, so far they haven't and the electric unit is probably 10 years old or so. Good luck on the build and its easy to post...

    Pit boss and pellet tubes or trays

    Microwave the pellets for a couple of minutes then light and let burn 5 minutes, blow out and put anywhere except next to your probe, the smoke will circulate all over

    Newbie Smoked First Pork Shoulders Disappointed!!

    Run your smoker as low as it will go for 3-4 hours with the buts setting on the rack, then set in pan and turn heat up, the lower you smoke the more smoke flavor you will get, a tube added will also help, have a look thru the pellet forum there's a lot of good info there

    New Pit Boss Austin XL

    Set it on smoke fore a couple hrs or more if doing a long smoke then move to 225-250 till done, thick porkchops are great at 2 hours of smoke ,.
