What meats are you cooking and what brand of pellets are you using?

For me I use mesquite or hickory mixed with Cherry or Apple.

You have to experiment a little to get the flavor that you want.

We burn pure Hickory pellets. Only way we could find to get enough wood flavoring with our cooker.

I use Nature's Way apple for chicken. Very similar to hickory but just a little lighter. Your Traeger will give a nice smoke flavor if you stick with low temps.

Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.
