Hind24P - Pellet is electric, more or less. The Cookshack PG series have large hoppers so you should be able to do long smokes without reloading the pellets. The SMO66 will go all night, no flame and you only need to load once. Depending upon what and how long you are smoking/cooking, this could be anywhere from 2 to 6 ounces of wood chunks. No need to see smoke for the entire cook. The folks at Cookshack can answer any and all tech questions and provide solid advice based upon your preferred foods for smoking.
