I've used them with my grill, we have a little pull out "smoker drawer", but I was wondering how they'd be in a smoker. I just bought a couple of bags of different flavored ones to try, orange, pecan, cherry, apple. I have a mustang electric smoker and thought I'd try them once instead of wood chunks. If it doesn't work I can still use them with the grill, but then I'd have to make that decision of not using the smoker...decisions, decisions...

Well, they smoke pretty much like chips, donâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]t they, sounds like that could be very interesting. Would be easy to maintain a nice thin smoke I would think. Theyâ€[emoji]8482[/emoji]re just compressed sawdust, right?

I have an electric smoker with a "pie plate" that sits over the element, do you think it's necessary to wrap them in foil? I was thinking just throwing them in the plate like I do chips...

Try them like you planned-placing them in the pan. If they burn down too quickly, then cover the pan with foil and poke some holes into the foil.
