Ok so I switched from Competiton blend pellets from Academy to PitBOSS Charcoal pellets. I’m also using a smoke tube with charcoal pellets. I am using a new rub I got from KOSMOS. I don’t work for any of these brands nor am I endorsing them. This is just what I am doing. I will post updates to let you know how it turns out. I am a HUGE FOODIE, and YELPER. So I have eaten at many places with excellent varieties of food. This is just my take on home BBQ. Maybe this can help someone who is just getting started with the PitBOSS KC Combo like me.
