Just picked up a new MES 40 today. Have it all seasoned up and ready to go. The manual says not to use "heat pellets" My understanding is that there is a difference between pellets meant for heating (create heat, duh!) and for smoke flavor (not so much heat). I have used the Traeger pellets in my other smokers. I have even used the oak heating pellets after contacting the manufacturer who stated they use only oak, no glue/binders. Does anyone use the flavor pellets in their MES?
