Lowboy, what type of pellet smoker is it?  I know there is a difference in the pellets used too.. some are better than others.

I have a  Memphis Pro smoker and have had no problems with it.

Welcome to the forum too!!

Can't help you with the pellet smoker.


I'm sure someone who has one will be along shortly.


What model do you have?

Hey Lowboy & Welcome to SMF!!


Pellet Grills/Smokers are basically a "Pellet Fired Convection Oven"

When the controller calls for heat, the auger adds pellets, and the fan blows faster.  This makes the pellets a very efficient fuel, but does not produce much smoke.

Some Pellet Grill/Smokers have a "Smoke Setting".  This is usually around 180° and is where the pellets are smoldering, rather than producing heat


Pellet choice is also important!

Some BBQ pellets are "Blended", and contain 70%-80% Oak or Alder and 20%-30% Flavor Wood.  Most of these bags are marked with the word "Flavored" on them.  So, you're mostly cooking/smoking with Alder or Oak.  You can also use a 100% Flavor Wood Pellets, and this may give you a better smoke flavor.  I only stock 100% Flavor Wood Pellets for this reason.


What smoker do you own?

Does it have a "Smoke" setting?


I also sent you a PM
