Default Can you compare Pecan Shell smoke to Pecan Wood smoke?

I just found a guy who sells Pecan Shells (not hulls) for $0.10 per pound, in 70 pound bags. I was wondering if the pecan shell smoke is about the same as pecan wood smoke. I have never tried the shells. I will mostly be using the shells in the UDS with the minion method.

Here is a link to an n8man thread that also talks about pecan shells but, does not compare the two together.

I think burning purely shells would be labor intensive. If I'm in a rush I'll add some to a little smoke box using the gasser and they just don't last long. They do impart some good flavor though.

Shells would be laced in with the charcoal in the UDS charcoal basket. Just taking the place of a chunk of wood.
