A few months ago a pipe broke in my basement and my pellets got soaked. I tried air drying them, but they kept snuffing out after a very short time when I tried to use them. I then tried microwaving them, but that didn't work either. They just kept going out and were very unreliable. Then it dawned on me to try making pellet "jerky" in the oven. My sheets with sides on them were occupied, so I just used a sheet of aluminum foil with the sides folded up. Into the oven they went for an hour at 250. Perfect! I got 10 hours of uninterrupted smoke!
