new to the smoking game , just unpacking  a quisinart electic (pls don't hold that against me its my first smoker) just would like to know if wood pellet or chips are better or both the same.
I don't think pellets will work well, burn up too fast. Chips or small chunks (1" X 2") work well for short bursts, 30 to 45 minutes, in the unit. If you want up to 10  hours without reloading get one of the Pellet Smoke Generators from A-MAZE-N Products... Todd the owner is very helpful and will make sure you are set up and satisfied...JJ
Hey any smoker is better than no smoker, Welcome to the site  Let us know how it turns out.
