While workring on the ranch the otherday I found a Smokeshack SM008 sitting in the corner of the shed all covered in dust and cobwebs. I asked the owner is about it and he said I could take it home and use it for as long as I want, he didn't want to sell it but he was happy to let me use it. So i figured SCORE for me. I've been wanting to do some smokes since moving down to texas but didn't want to leave my propane smoker going when I wasn't around and burn the town down with as dry as it is. So now problem solved. Question is can anyone give me some suggesting, tips and tricks for using this little devil. Can you use chipps in the wood box or just lumps?? any thing will help, can wait to get a brisket in it and some sausge.
