All true, no pellets in that slow smoker attachment. I've been using that for years only with chips or chunks that are no larger than 1"x1". I got the idea of turning it off a few years ago here, cannot remember who recommended it. I turn it on and when it's producing a good amount of smoke, turn off and it keeps smoke going for an hour sometimes. Then I add more and turn back on depending how long I'm cooking. I use that as well as the Amazin tube with pellets. Yes you can leave the ash drawer open slightly to allow more air, but be careful as that often causes a flare up, which you don't want. I use these 2 things as it allows me to use 2 different flavored wood or pellets within the same cook. I also took the cover over the burner of the Smoker and place wood chunks in a tray right on the burner element. Thanks to
Rich for suggesting that a few years ago. That produces a more true wood flavor as well.
