View Full Version : Can you use Pellets?

I purchased some: grilling pellets for smoke flavoring. One is Jack Daniels flavored
the other is Savory Herb (oak, oregano, rosemary and thyme).

I was thinking of trying them in my SmokinTex 1430 with some foil lining in my wood box.. anyone have experience good or bad using these? I did not see any mention of pellets in the manual, FAQ or in the forums.

since I didn't get any answers I decided to give it a go.. I used 2 wood blocks that came with the smoker and put about 4oz of the savory herb pellets into a aluminum foil boat in the wood box. The smoke coming out had a very pleasant odor. The pellets looked like charcoal coming out so, looks like they work okay. I did the Orange chicken, Beer chicken and some spare ribs, everything turned out awesome.
I will try again with the JD pellets alone when I get a hold of a tri-tip and let you know how it turns out.
