AMNPS & Pellets vs. Creosote

I've been reading about people talking about using their MES and a pellet tool to generate smoke. A lot are speaking of the continued need to produce TBS as opposed to the white smoke due to creosote.

Most MES owners I talk to who use the AMNPS say that there is no need to pull the chip tray out for air flow. If you don't pull it out you get thicker white smoke with a prolonged burn in the AMNPS. When pulled.out, you get the TBS with an extremely fast burn in your AMNPS.

Of course I want the most for my money and don't wish to burn up all of my pellets.

So do pellets create creosote? When using pellets is the thicker white smoke something to worry about or consider?

All wood will create creosote if not burned properly.Proper being TBS.

Its all about proper fire control and the right air adjustment then you won't get creosote.

I'm only on my 2nd smoke in my MES 30 but I'm finding my way with chips and amount and time. So far so good. I have about 20 lbs of chips, apple, and pecan that I got at a great price. If I find this too intensive I'll switch to the AMNPS so it's set it and forget it.

Sorry I missed the fact that you have an electric smoker no fire here.
