In your opinion, do you need to burn the wood chunks/coal along with the pellets to get a quality smoke profile compared to straight sticks?
I've been thinking about adding a smokedaddy to my vertical cabinet. For quite some time actually. Heck, I've done just about everything else to the cabinet. Adding the smokedaddy for the ease of smoking jerky, fish etc at 160*.

Looks like quite the monster! You sure are putting out some great looking food. Have you tried putting the chunks on the bottom of the basket and charcoal on top? That could potentially help with the flame spreading

I’d love to see in action on that vertical cabinet!

Yes. I compared running pellet-only versus the combo pellet + charcoal & chunks and found that the combo was closer to straight sticks in terms of penetration of the smoke, smoke ring, and color. All subjective of course.

The charcoal & chunks in this case are not adding much heat, just flavor. They only last for several hours, which from everything I have read is when the meat absorbs the most smoke (i.e., when the meat is cold).

The horror...

Glad it’s working out for you, looks like it’s producing some good results. I’m in the opposite camp - I’m a pyro since day one & recent stick burner convert. I really look forward to starting a fire & watching it burn, baby burn. Now I get to play with fire year ‘round, not just the few months it’s cool enough at night here to justify a fire in the fireplace.

Pyros definitely better suited for stickburner LOL. There is something primal about a pile of wood burning down to embers...

Nice post. I'm probably never going to be a pellet guy, but interesting project.
