    What kind of pellets do you use? I don’t like traeger pellets. I buy him beam pellets. I get mine from tractor supply, I get tons of smoke out of mine.

    I just bought a different kind of hickory pellet too but I can’t remember the brand. It’s what I’m using right now smoking my beef brisket.

    I get the most smoke out of the Jim beams on mine so far. I actually get a lot out of them, Like my whole back porch will be covered in smoke... what model do you have?

    I love my traeger! Going on 6 years no problems. You’ve seen my Instagram. It produces quality food.

    I have the Davey crocket for camping as well. It regulates temp better than my Traeger.
