I have tried to put regular hickory sawdust in the smoker and sometimes it will work and sometimes it will light and only burn for a really short time (5 or 10 minutes) and just go out. Anybody have any suggestions. I know the dust isn't that expensive but I have a supply local and it is a shame to pay uncle sam the shipping and not use local resources. Any help would be appreciated by not only me but I am sure there are others in the same boat.
