Default Deeper Into The Abyss- Itís Dark in here

... but the aroma is killer. Pellets, the immediate clean aroma of pellets. Iíve wondered aimlessly since my Ozark Oak lump left the building. I donít have a briquettes cooker set up, though Ive got several in storage. If you were lucky you used or tried Ozark Oak. It wasnít cheap at $1+#, but that was a fair price for a consistent quality lump. Top Shelf. Iím always trying new coals. Now Im trying different pellets. Sales mostly. I donít mind blended woods. Iíve got a friend with three pellet cookers and he swears by Traeger. Thatís one Iíve not tried.

Dark and cold. But dammit it smells good.

Couldnít agree more! The smell of pellet smoke is other-worldly/intoxicating/therapeutic ó there is nothing else like it :)

Yep, and I've found the Pit Boss comp blend are particularly tasty smelling. I've been told the blend is Maple/Hickory/Cherry. ~$14 for 40 lbs is a heck of a deal from your local walmart. If you haven't tried them, they're definitely worth a shot. My second choice is B&B from Academy, but I think either Lowes/HD may carry them? They're rebranded BBQ'r Delight pellets. Base wood is Oak and is a 70%/30% blend to the flavorwood.

I would like to get some 100% Pecan and 100% Mesquite, but the 100% versions are usually more $$ than I'd like. I'd love it if someone would do a 66/33 Pecan/Mesquite blend. I almost considered buying a pellet mill as I have a lot of Pecan but they are even more $$$ than the pellets, haha.

I fell deep down the hole myself. I was a dedicated wood burner 12 months ago. splitting, stacking, feed the fire. the drum started all, as long as I fed it quality lump the difference was minimal. then this pellet craze started. traeger is a force on Instagram. guerrilla marketing. the food off these things looks awesome, great color.

fast forward a year and life is different. there has been life, death and illness. time has become a commodity. I like to bbq with all wood. the clean taste of a stick burner. pellets are all wood too and is actually about the same profile I get burning splits.

every winter I setup a cooker as close to the front door as possible. a little white trashy but it's nice to tend a cooker from the threshold of the front door. this year its gonna be the traeger. Bruno hates the the thing

haha - I look at the grease buckets hanging off of those things and start to wonder how I could rig a couple of mousetraps to the side of the bucket to dissuade one of my dogs from constantly trying to get at the drippings.

I posed the question in a thread a few weeks ago.

http://www.bbq-brethren.com/forum/sh...d.php?t=264316

seems not much can be done. the pup is short due to his being half French bulldog, his head comes just to my knees and just short of reaching the bucket on the traeger. he frequently raised the bucket on the offset

I've ordered from these folks for my cold smokes with the AMNPS.

Pretty good variety and they burn well in the tray.

Perhaps there are still enough of us holdouts to properly shun these folks moving to the dark side....chasing their easy smoke...comparing the smell profiles of their pre-chewed wood... and all while sitting with idle hands....


Evil I say! Nothing is sacred anymore... I weep for the future, etc.

















sooo.....watcha cookin?

I started with a Traeger. Nothing but problems with the unit, although the food was good I didn’t like the smoke profile and always chased it with additional tube smokers.

When it worked it was easy as an oven. I was partial to cookinpellets.com and still use the perfect mix to cold smoke.

I much prefer the process and the taste from the Lang. Think I’ll be sticking with a stckburner.
