"Heating pellets are made from a combination of softwoods, charcoal and other fillers that can give your food a chemical taste. Even high-quality heating pellets can include leaves and bark, which taste bad and can lead to health risks if ingested. Many shoppers are tempted to purchase heating pellets for cooking because they are often cheaper than food-grade pellets. Resist that urge and buy cooking pellets so you have a safer product and better-tasting food."
Use lumberjack, bear mountain, or knotty wood branded pellets. They're pretty much the only three brands that should be used. I used the pit boss competition blend and they're not too bad but the rest of their pellets are pure trash. Try one of those brands if you're not already. And typically when smoking food you'll be in the range of 200-250 degrees F. Also like others said for additional smoke add a smoke tube to promote additional pellet burning.

you also will not get a sear on smoker that does not have a searing function. your best bet is to bring it inside and sear it on the stove after you're done smoking or get one of the pitboss pellet grills that have the slidable searing function that exposes it directly to the open fire pot which works fantastically.
You guys are Smoking ! Thanks and Reps All….. I don't know if it's the Great Prices or Priceless Wisdom I get here at Slick Deals? Long Live Slickdeals and the Great Guys willing to help a brother out.

Can a present owner that has this compare the smoke/charcoal finished flavor vs a MasterBuilt Electric Smoker? I've got a pellet grill and I love the convenience but i'm not getting the flavor or a searing high heat finish.

You can add a smoke tube to get more smoke to the meat. I used one with my electric and now my pellet grill.

Weird question but could I use wood pellets for a pellet stove in this? I don't really know anything about wood pellets or using smokers but the hardware store near me sells great big bags of pellet fuel really cheap

If you're not getting good smoke flavor, it might be the smoker, but could also be poor quality pellets, you're not smoking long enough, and/or your meat isn't moist enough to absorb the smoke. Try a dif temp, dif pellets, and spraying it every 15-30 mins.

I also have/had a MES and a large pitboss pro. First question would be if you have added a pellet tube, tray, or mailbox mod to your MES? Would give an idea of what you are used to because I don't think a stock MES does great and had done all of those to mine. Then I would just say add a smoke tube to the pitboss and see how it does. Since they use pellet for heat and smoke if they are running stable then not as much smoke.

Skeptical how much smoke you could get from a small one like this. Super small chamber, so not a lot of airspace for smoke in there too. Plus you'd be right on top of the heat source and no way to raise it. And just limited in size in general. And small hopper so have to watch it a lot.

I've seen someone that owned this and smells and works just like a normal pellet smoker. Just smaller format. Worth it if i needed it for RV or camping.

I thought about getting one of these and I had heard that the fan for this unit is underpowered

I've never spritzed and haven't found a need to. Lots of contrasting opinions if it does anything. Seems like a reason why I have to open the lid and the more I do that would create more issues (temp drop, loss of smoke, extend time, etc.)

if you're looking for a portable option like this, masterbuilt just came out with their portable charcoal grill that operates just like their gravity series smokers/grills. i got rid of my traeger for a gravity series exactly for those reasons.

pellets used for fuel for heating are NOT the same as pellets used for cooking/smoking.

No! Not food safe and could be full of who knows what.
