Can you use pelets in the mes 40 smoker? It says to only use wood chips, which im doing now. I am on my first run and doing a set of pork ribs on. I have read post saying you can put them in the amps. But has anyone tried them in the chip loader that is on the smoker? Let me know. Thanks for your time.

3 hours

1 hour later they are done.
