I’ve tried using it about 5 times with zero success. My two overnight smokes recently and just a few tests. I’ve used the pellets straight out of the bag, I’ve microwaved them for a few minutes to extract the moisture, tented foil over it to protect from meat juices. Used with hickory pellets only. What am I missing? I use a MAP gas plumbing torch to light the end, about the first inch is burning and glowing red when I blow on it. It’s not like they aren’t lit. Do I need to make the pellets into sawdust? I’m at a loss here. I know someone has the secret I need. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated!
