Default mixing pellets on FEC

When mixing wood pellets on an FEC (I am going to use a mixture of apple and hickory) is it as simple as just dumping both kinds of pellets into the hopper? Or do you add one flavor of wood - let those get used - then add another flavor by itself on top of the first batch of pellets?

Thanks guys and gals!!

I dump them both in at the same time, then give them a toss or two in the hopper

There's no requirement to mix. But as Thom said, some guys like to stagger flavors for various reasons. If I'm using Hickory and Apple, I mix them together in the hopper. No problem.

I know many a successful FEC users only using hickory. FE advocates it as well. I am the idiot that farks it all up by using a different flavor in my old FE.....
