How a pellet tube smoker
works is pretty simple, but there are quite a few different ways that you can use it that I love. I’ve had a lot of fun playing around with pellet tube smoking both cold smoking and hot smoking on various different types of smokers.
There are a few tricks that I’ve learned over the years and I will talk about a few of the basics as well, the ins and outs.
How Do I Use a Pellet Smoker Tube?
Fill the pellet tube with wood pellets or wood chips, smaller sized wood is better. Sawdust is a bit too small, I have all sorts of smoking woods. I used wood chipped grape wood but it went out often. So I mixed it with applewood pellets and it burned very nicely.
So pretty much you just get one end of the pellet tube lit with a decent lighter. You can’t use a normal lighter to do this you have to get a Brulé torch or butane torch.
You always light the pellet tube vertically, then once it’s probably lit and the wood is going with some embers burning. You can place the pellet tube horizontally. Here are some pics to give you a better idea of the process, the learning curve is pretty easy.
How Much Does a Tube Smoker Cost?
Most I realized that most the time thereunder $10. But I think you do need to check that at least 304 stainless steel. We can provide the smoker tube with $5
Choosing a Pellet Tube Size and Shape
Now we have the shapes for square, round, Hexagonal and Triangular, all size can be 6 or 12 inches or custom.
