Smokin' Materials

  1. Here's my dilemma, I have a lot of wood to use for smoking on my property, (hickory, oak, maple, apple, peach, redbud, persimmon and wild cherry) I can make sawdust or chunks but not chips. I'm using a Camp Chef 18" smoker and when I use chips (store bought) they don't last very long, Do you think chunks would work in the chip pan on a low heat? Also was wondering about a 6x6 Amazin-smoker, can I use my saw dust in them? Do they need fire under them or is it supposed to burn on it's own? What do you do to get long lasting smoke?

    Chunks should work fine and last awhile. Dust in the Maze, burns on it's own once lit well...JJ

    I use chunks in my Camp chef, they work fine.

  4. Thanks Guy's, I'll give the chunks a try. I hated to experiment with meat in the box when I can tap into all the knowledge here on SMF.
