Hi all, just ran into your forum while looking for info on using pellet stove pellets in a smoking grill and found all sorts of information and individual likes/dislikes; perfect!
I have, in my too long life, always had a charcoal grill and/or a gas grill on my deck and used them lots. In the last couple of years my kids have gotten into pellet grills and after finally running one I was hooked. I now have a Pit Boss Sportsman 820 and love it! And have spent hours online checking with the masters of grilling on the subject. Very happy to have found your forum!
I have just retired and have found myself with the odious task of living the beach life on a mountain lake for the rest of my life; Having to spend all my time fishing/boating and hiking/camping with family and friends then snow skiing all winter is now my lifes burden ; but now I can get away from it all and leisurely run my new grill! :emoji_sunglasses:

Welcome from Kentucky! I would not use stove pellets in a smoker. I've read that some people are using them, but I'll stick with pellets designed for cooking.

Welcome to SMF!
I would not use heating pellets for smoking either. If it’s going to flavor your food, and you going to spend a good amount of time preparing it, then why not look for the best tasting highest quality pellet.
