    Anyone every try a mix of Pitmaster's choice with Charcoal pellets?  Doing a smoke for a large party this weekend but haven't tried that mix yet. Sounds like it might be a good mix but also don't want to ruin the Q!

    Try it when the experiment won't matter. Sounds like it could this weekend. Go with what you know. Experiment on a rack or two, or a butt or two when it won't matter as much. It'll probably be OK, but are you SURE?

    I use the Pit Masters Choice and Charcoal in my Electric smoker and I'm able to get a smoke ring, just not the type of smoke ring I get from my stick burner but none the less still a smoke ring though. I put my charcoal in a cast iron skillet that I drilled holes in the lid and place it on the element.

    I would be using the charcoal pellets that Todd sells and not the briquettes.  Thinking about mixing in a 5-lb bag of the charcoal pellets with a 20-lb bag of Pitmasters choice.

    Try a small batch first see how they burn.

    I may try it with a spatchcocked chicken.  I don't have a whole lotta time and just got my new MES a few days ago.
