Congrats!

The best bang for the buck in pellets is to order by the pallet. Of course, that's a lot of pellets! If you can find some other pelletheads in your area to share a pallet you can get some good prices.

Congrats on the Yoder, you will love it! ATBBQ sells BBQr's Delight by the pallet at a great discount and they are good pellets. You can also buy in bulk from Lumberjack, cookinpellets.com and others. So it's best to try a few brands and see which you like best, then order those in bulk. Believe me, you will use that baby a lot, so you will need the pellets.

If you want to buy bulk now, the safest bet is BBQr's Delight Hickory. That is the pellet that Yoder uses to test and program the pits, so you know they will work great for you. ATBBQ would be the place to order those.

Have fun and post pics once you get it.

I think your right about ATBBQ can't go wrong with them, I had read some post that the YS can be finicky with some pellets. BBQR'S delight is what's recommended for it.. Thanks AGain I will be sure to post pics!!!!

Awesome product! Yoder is a LOT of quality for the money! 2k for it is a bargain IMHO. I would buy it in a minute if I had the room for it!!

Good luck with it and will look for an update of how you are liking it.

The wonderful thing about pellet smokers is that they are so easy and fast to fire up, you find yourself smoking more often, especially short cooks.

The team at ATBBQ exclusively use BBQ's Delight pellets. They are tested using these so tend to work better with the software. But unlike Trager, they make no claim as to you have to use a certain brand or it voids the warenty.

BTW: ATBBQ is currently running a sale on pellets, 5 bucks off per bag. It's on their website.
