I can’t say I have ever used hickory but we do use a lot of oak here in Texas. Love the way oak smells on a pit. I’d still like to find a straight pecan pellet. It’s always been my favorite.Ok I couldn't resist. 6.88 is pocket change so I grabbed a bag. I don't need anymore pellets I probably have enough to get me thru til June.
Finally getting a steady stream of thin blue/white smoke from my 850, It seems like the pellets were the problem?¿Today I had a bad experience with Bear Mountain Gourmet Blend pellets, put on a Pork Shoulder Roast and I could not get any smoke from my smoker, added a smoke tube with the same pellets and there was very little smoke! After 3 hours I changed the pellets to Weber hickory and dumped the smoke tube and filled it with some Weber hickory. Getting smoke now from the tube but it's gonna take a while to get the pellets through the auger.
I will not use Bear Mountain Gourmet Blend pellets again!
Also produced a lot of ash, the worst I have seen, I'm thinking maybe a bad batch of pellets?Wow, first Bear Mountain I used was Gourmet Blend and they produced a ton of smoke. I was sold on Bear Mountain after that one bag and have since bought many more (but only when BOGO )
What's in the bear mountain gourmet blend? I dont see on the bag what wood types are in it.
