Can I use the Traeger pellets in an AMNPS maze?

I have an AMNPS 5x8 maze and want to know if I can use the Traeger pellets in it with no problem. Mostly just want to be sure they'll be able to smolder and smoke instead of just burning all the way through. I just got these because they were available at the grocery store and I want to smoke today!

Also has anyone used the Jack Daniel's pellets? Is there a noticable flavor difference for the cost?

I don’t think Traeger pellets are 100% of the wood you choose. They have filler hardwood in them. So your not going to get the same smoke flavor in the maze as you would if you use Amazen pellets. They cost a bit more, but they last forever if you just use them in the maze.

I use Jack Daniels pellets frequently. They are my go-to for anything chocolate. Haven't tried them with anything else.

And isn't the filler wood used to improve heat output? So Treager pellets might burn hotter than pellets from 100% flavor wood.

I have read the traeger pellets also use an oil for flavor and have very little of the fruitwood in them. I only use pellets that say they are 100% of apple or cherry. The one time I did use a different brand and it didn't say 100%, my cheese wasn't as good.
