I know some flavors of wood are harder to light and keep lit than others.


Hickory burns really well. I frequently will have leftover unburned pellets after a smoke. If they're all the same type I will either save them for the next smoke or put them back in their bag. Or, depending on what I'm smoking, I'll make my own blend of two different types of wood pellets or I'll add Pitmaster's Choice to whatever was left over. I once read that many pitmasters like to combine a fruitwood with a nutwood. For pork, pecan and apple woods is a classic pairing. I think hickory and cherry also go well together.

With the tray or candle?  Record a video on your phone of how you're lighting it if you can.  I had one somewhere where I used a hairdryer.
