Let me know what you think about those pellets. There was a guy at a contest a few weeks ago using them. He didn't win anything, but then again neither did I :)

Just picked up a 25# bag of Green Mountain Preium Blend for $13.99 + tax. The gent at the counter says they are 70% oak ..20 % hickory and 10 % maple. I haven't fired any yet to grasp the smell of them. Also, just heard from Bear Mountain. There is a dealer in my local area. Will check them out on Saturday.

Just fired some using briquets. Smell was great. Hope they hurry and get my Traeger to me.

yes and watch the traeger pellets they are mostly alder fill. Which is good and bad. You can't oversmoke your meat / You can't oversmoke your meat

traegers do a great job and you will love the versatility. I love my backwoods but the thing I loved about my traeger was. It was like a transformer. I could cook a brisket for 12 hours pull it off and then turn the heat up and grills dogs and burgers. Or WITHOUT a pizza stone I could cook a pizza. The heat shield/drip pan does an excellent job of indirect heat. Your gonna love it. butt looks great as well.

Actually the correct answer is... it depends.

Traeger has two plants. The one in Oregon is Alder based; they have one in Alabama that's Oak based pellets (too many complaints over the years about their alder)

Silver bags are Alabama.

Luckily I've only bought "silver" bags. Thanks for the tip. I'll keep my eyes open.

All the bags I've purchased have been Silver with the exception of the one bag of Onion Pellets. That was white.
I smoked a chuck roast the other day with them & I was really suprised @ the nice flavor it left in the meat:drooling: Was awful tough though.

Anybody compare those pellets yet?

Are you able to run the fire pots independently?Turn one off?

I haven't noticed any difference in the quality of pellets from the white bags & silver.
I have a BBQ070 Lil Tex. It only has one firepot.

No difference in the pellets unless your palate is of michelin star quality.

Pretty sure there is just one controller for the two fire pots. BUT the Lou Country Smoker Whole hog has two indepent fire pots.:thumbs up:
