Hey how many lbs of pellets would I need to get started? I'll probably smoke once a week, 4X a month. I'll mostly do fish (short smokes), but definitely want to try that Boston butt someone recommended (longer smoke). I dont want to buy too much of one flavor because I'd like to experiment, but also dont want to pay for shipping too many different bags.
Where do you guys get your supplies? I saw on Amazon they have Weber Apple Wood Chips (3lbs) for $4-$6. This comes out to $1.30 / lbs. How many smokes can I get our a bag like this?
I also see they have some Traeger PEL304 Hickory Barbeque Pellets (20lbs) for $25. Also $1.30 / lb. Would I get more smoke hours from pellets?
