Hi all,
When grilling almost everyday day...how do you store your pellets that are still in the hopper?
It’s been light raining where I’m at for several days.
is there any issue or concern for not emptying the hopper?
Should I get a huge decedent pack to help remove the moisture if I let the pellets sit in the hopper?

And FYI now sift every bag of pellets. I had zeros issues with the hickory, but I got 4 bags of competition and found huge chunks of wood, one peice of plastic (quarter size) and about 100 pellets that had paint on them!!!

Thanks.

:unsure: Which brand of pellets had the contaminants?

I leave my pellets in all the time. I do have a cover on when it's not in use. So far no problems. I shift the pellets every time I add just to be save.

Were they Pit boss pellets? The first bags of pellets i bought were Pitboss from lowes , they had really big chunks of wood in them. I haven't used pitboss pellets since.

Yes there are out boss competition pellets.
The bad thing is when I review all the different manufactures on Amazon reviews....they all have issues. Every single one of them!

so now I sift every bag and pull out the crap pellets or random crap and all the dust.

I always empty mine out. In damp weather I had to remove the auger twice. Don't like doing that but I don't use mine every day.

Never had any problems with pellets in hopper even with multiple days of rain during winter. My AXL is kept under roof and never gets rained on. Trash and paint on pellets is unacceptable. Lumberjack, Bear Mountain, Kingsford and B&B are reliable.
