    I can't believe I just stumbled on this section as I've been getting Jeff's recipes and emails for years.  I've been smoking foods for over 40 years but I have only been using a pellet smoker for a year.  I have a traeger texas grill which I like but I've had to do some mods to it to get it where I want it to be.  I'll be adding a new temp controller (PID) shortly as I don't like the Ortech knock off that is on my smoker.

    I use BBQ delight pellets or the Academy rebranded name of B& B cooking pellets.  I got rid of my traeger pellets 8 months ago when I I noticed the smoke flavor wasn't getting to the meat enough.  I even bought a smoke daddy smoke generator to ramp up the smoke but I don't have to use it near as often now that I switched pellets.  

    I also have a converted natural gas smoker that I don't use much any more.

    I live in Edmond OK and I am a big OU fan. 

    Anyway, I look forward to the discussions on this board.

    Welcome to the group from another Oklahoman!  I live in the Tulsa area, and I burn a lot of those B&B pellets too.  Good pellets, and a lot cheaper than ordering the premium brands and paying to have them shipped.

    Thanks Red.

    I see you are a Rec tec owner...wish I would have made that choice a year ago.  I like my traeger Texas but the temp controller is poor so I guess I'll be getting a Blazn grill PID to retrofit it.  As a Sooner fan I wouldn't mind that bright red smoker...either.

    Yeah that red color is perfect for Sooner fans! But hey, don't sell that Traegef short...those rigs have put out lots of good grub over the years. And with a PID upgrade, it'll be even better.
