This guy doesn't seem to be a fan of pellet smokers so he put wood chips in the tube. I'll try this out sometime. Smoking a pork shoulder right now and using my smoke tube with pellets so maybe I'll try it on my next smoke .

Tried it out today. Worked ok but it was a short cook, just 90 minutes with some hickory chips. It's getting to where I have to really watch my pellet grill using extra smoke. If I am not careful it will flame out so I had to baby sit it the whole time. But the grill is 2 years old and used all the time.

Will be curious to try the wood chips on my vertical smoker on the next long cook. The wood chips don't last as long as pellets in the tube but they lasted the whole 90 minutes and we're still smoking 45 min after I took the chops off the grill.

Will experiment with it some more.
