I've been experimenting with my electric smoker. A couple versions of the mailbox idea for instance. Sometimes using pellets has been inconsistent.

I tried some charcol briquettes lined up like a short snake in a pan. Smoldered a long time.

So, I am think about getting some hardwood briquettes and trying them.

I'm not familiar with them. Seems like it's worth a try.

Any thoughts?
