Does this use wood chips, discs, etc?
Is the wood automatically fed?

Thank you for your interest in the Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite 40" Electric Smokehouse with Viewing Window. We recommend using dry wood chips with this unit. The unit comes with a wood chip loader which allows you to manually add a half of cups of wood chips into the side of the smoker which drop into the wood chip tray. Using the wood chip loader allows you to add wood chips into the smoker without having to open the door.

It is recommended you use wood chips, not chunks or discs. You load small amounts each time but they virtually disappear into nothing because they are combusted so efficiently.

I used the small pellets and it put out plenty of smoke and one bag filled the cup perfectly. I used just two small bags to smoke a 12 lb turkey and a 8.5 lb Boston Butt roast and they both had plenty of smoke. It's recommended to do your smoking in the early stages of cooking.
I can't rule out the chips because I haven't tried them yet. I'm sorry this
probably doesn't answer your question.

You can use wood chips of your choice. You're not restricted to using the manufacturers product like the disc smokers. The chips are added manually by the user. However, it is a small tray on the side of the smoker that can be accessed easily while the smoker is running without letting the heat/smoke escape.

Wood chips wet OR dry, and you have to add them once an hour, easy to load on the side.

It uses wood chips and it doesn`t take very many. You put them in before you light the charcoal. You never touch the unit again until you take the meat out.
