Well I ended up buying one. Got the 5x8. Will probably be trying it tomorrow, as we decided over wings and beer at lunch, we should have pulled pork and sides tomorrow. Do you guys have a problem with air flow? Do you leave the chip tube out? I was just wondering if I would disconnect my cold smoker I have now, or if I can just have the ash tray open for air flow. Also, any preferences on pellets, or should any hardwood/fruit wood pellet work fine? The local Ace hardware carries Trager pellets in the 18lb. bag, figure that would hold me over for a bit. Thanks guys. If we get creative, I will be sure to take some pictures.
