I usually use Louisiana brand. Several places locally carry them, and all varieties produce good smoke. Price is a little high at $35/40lbs, but still less than a $1.00/lb so I don't complain too much.
Pellet selection does matter. I've had some (forget the brand, it was when I first started) that produced almost no smoke flavor. The Grill can make a difference as well. On my PG500 I can get smoke at almost any temp, up to 450 or so, by adjusting the LHT/HHT settings. The difference is the...
IMHO best combo on the market is the Fast Eddy/Cooks hack PG500 or 1000 or the Englander Pellets grill which was also designed by Fast Eddy.

Not sure about GMG specifically but a lot of local dealers will through in setup and delivery and a few bags of pellets to make it a better deal.
That is what I did for my PG500 a few years ago. They not only put it on my deck but took my old gasser off, saving me the trouble of finding a...
Pellets aren't "that" expensive. I get 40# page from the local ACE for 35, and usually have a $10 discount on a 50 purchase so can get 80 lbs for 60.
It depends on the unit how many you will burn through. I will probably use 8 or so pounds on my butt today.
I could do a bulk buy and save a...
First weekend of College Football calls for low and slow. Put the shoulder on at 2:00 am shooting for a 5:30 Southern Miss kickoff.
Rubbed up yesterday afternoon.
Loaded the PG500 with apple at 2:00 am.
6:45 looking good
