A few things I learned were: 1 - don’t use recteq ultimate blend pellets, they don’t give much flavor or smoke. I found that I like...

    Rec Tec extreme smoke setting

    I would like to try an overnight butt smoke on my new RT 1250. I would like to use the extreme smoke setting all night long, with no smoke tube or anything else.
