Well after loads of frustration I finally have discovered the perfect smoker load for me.

A combination of wood pellet stove fuel, cedar shavings, and Kingsford charcol lit with propane torch. Finally a long smoking combo that can be replenished easily and cheap.

Paper, cedar shavings, a couple chunks of charcol, and use a propane torch. Once it goes you can easily keep it going indefinatly without scrounging around for sticks, grass, and other debris.

Just use a sprinkling of wood pellets at first. Then gradually add more. After a hour or so I add another chuck of charcol and feed shavings and pellets as needed (not needed too often).

I use the perforated can insert as described on Michael Bush's site. I lite it outside the smoker and use the smoker as a bellows to stoke it. When going good I them insert it into the smoker and have at it.

Keeping a smoker lit isn't all about what kind of fuel, although good fuel is helpful, it's about building and maintaining a fire. If you can build a nice fire and control it you understand the principles involved. Fuel, heat, air, coals etc.

*******, many members of the local association here swear by the stuff. But just the same I prefer to take another route, though honestly I often have trouble keeping my smoker lit.
