I find that I got wider temp swings with Pit Boss pellets, but that could be my pellet grill. I don't have a DB. I would try it, and see if it affects your grill.

I don't use a tube in my pellet grill, so I can't comment on that part.

Do people that use pellet tubes get nasty smoke on their food? It just seems like a heavy wood smolder.

I use them on my gasser mixed with wood chips. It normally keeps a flame while I am doing it, Plus the gasser has a very high natural air flow.

I bought a 12" Amazin Tube to use for cold smoking in my FEC-100. The trick is to light it with a propane burner and let it go for about ten minutes before blowing out the flame at which point a 12" tube will smoke for about six hours.

After cold smoking bacon for six hours with Apple Pellets, I fired up my FEC-100 at 200 degrees for another two to three hours to get some color on my pork belly's without "cooking" the meat all the way through.

I also used the smoke tube occasionally with my Webber Gasser for quick smoke flavor on steaks, but since I bought my PK Original Grill I rarely use my Webber Gasser!

No reason to use the smoking tube with my FEC-100 on ribs, brisket, etc. as I get more than enough smoke without a tube.

I get great results with pit boss comp blend. I'd never use a smoke tube unless I felt the need to add creosote flavor to my food. (this is my opinion only, please don't kill me!)

Everyone is entitled to an opinion, even if it is wrong. I have 3 different sizes of pellet tubes/trays. I use them for cold smoking, and adding additional smoke during some cooks. Never once got a creosote taste, or any bad smoke flavor at all.

I agree but my opinion is not based on any research or facts. It's just in my head that thick white smoke isn't good. Crazy i know!

I suppose the quality of the smoke is based partly on the quality of the pellets. I use an A-maze-n tube and my experience is there is nothing ‘nasty’ about them. I use it my pellet smoker and Weber gasser.

I think I'm about to go ahead a join the pellet pooper club. The ys640 is looking mighty good. Are there still paint issues with it? I'd like to find a decent used one so I'm hoping I'm not setting myself up for disappointment with the paint quality.

Mine rusted pretty badly on the front left in under a year...it drove me crazy honestly. You need to go into it expecting to sand and paint periodically IMO. Great cooker otherwise

This was less than a year and covered most times

Wow, it rusted within a year?? For the amount of money you're paying, you wouldn't expect to have to deal with that within a year!

Unfortunately that seems to be a pretty common complaint with the Yoders. Sweet pellet grills, but that paint would drive me bonkers.

Yes. I am fairly sure it is because I did a lot of reverse searing on it...so it wasnt just used as a smoker...reverse searing at 450 with grill grates (worked very well), but the heat from repeated grilling was the culprit I believe. I sanded it up and painted it when I sold it...but it bothered me to no end to be honest with you

Yoder doesn't powder coat their grills, just paints them, as they think it's better for the owner to repaint rusting areas and have the grill look new again. That is a philosophy I completely disagree with. One of the many reasons I would not buy a Yoder.

Love my ys640, but if touching up paint, is going to bother you, do not buy one.
