I have been using Royol Oak Lump. I have been trying two ways...small 2X2 chunks of hickory or pecan in the chute with the charcoal and chunks in the ash pan. I have noticed that some times I don't get good combustion with the chunks in the pan. I often get a sour or acrid smoke. Which I believe comes from incomplete combustion



Never had that happen of course i dont use Lump,tried it once didnt care for it although its cheaper than Stubbs i like Stubbs the best except i do like the New Green bag of royal oak but they dont keep much in stock

Please don't modify your Stump's Smoker!

Try another brand of charcoal.

Use greener wood chunks. Maybe even fresh-cut, off the tree? How old is your smoking wood? If you bought it in a bag at a Mega-Mart, it might be completely dried out and have no flavors left to give.

Just a couple of thoughts!

I dont like much smoke personally, but if you do try putting some wood chucks down the charcoal chute. Then you will get the full smoke instead of having the smoke pass thru the burning charcoal and burn out the impurities of the smoke. It will be like smoke from a stick burner when the wood is still burning and not turned to charcoal.

If you use temp controller, choke your fan to restrict air flow. This will make the fan kick on to push smoke into the cook chamber. Otherwise, put chunks in your chute.
