Another area to check is your pellets. Did you switch brands recently? Some pellets aren't 100% pure wood. They will use a low flavor wood for the bulk and add some oak wood to give it some flavor or use wood flavorings added to the mix in order to cut costs. Read the label carefully. If it says...
Thanks for posting this 3montes.
I ordered it and ran it with a pork tenderloin. It worked very well.
I set it to pork, medium rare (choices are in the built in menu) and synced it to my Ipad.
The Ipad showed the rising temps and changed colors as it got closer to the idea temp (140F).
Having tried a few of Bear's step by step recipes and succeeding I thought it was time to try the bacon on a stick recipe. The reviews were great. One person even said his wife called them the best ribs he'd ever made.

Thanks for any tips.

Way to go Dave. As you know the learning process is chock full of mistakes and wins. It looks like you got the errors out of the way so future loaves should put a grin on your face. Can't wait to see that.
With as much skill and experience we all have in making excellent BBQ and smoked things I'm surprised none of you have made your own cheese. It's no harder than doing ribs right. If you have to you can even use store bought milk, though if you start on this journey you might find a way to get...
