So I just bought a pit boss 700fb.
I smoked a brisket on the weekend(turned out amazing!) I used traeger oak pellets. Yesterday I bought cabelas roasted garlic and beer pellets for some ribs I bought. I set it to 250 and the temperature swing was not good. It would rise to 310 and then back to down to 220 and when it would drop the smoker would produce huge white smoke, this happened through out the whole cook. The fan and and auger seems to be working good, could this be bad pellets? As soon as I bought the pellets they went straight into a sealed food grade pail for storage.

trevor,

Pellets do play a role in certain temps. but I would look on the bag and see what is in the pellets especially Garlic and Beer that may be the reason what is driving the white smoke.

I just bought some Bear Mountain pellets and I am seeing some odd temp swings with it, but B&B Pellets I get the best consistent temps with it.
