Masterbuilt 40" & pellets??

Discussion in 'Electric Smokers' started by derrikmo, Apr 22, 2013.

  1. I was wondering if anyone is using pellets instead of chips in a Masterbuilt smoker.  If so, how does it compare?  

    Do you need to soak the pellets as you would chips or do you use them dry?  Is the quality of the smoke better or worse?  Does a load of pellets last longer than a load of chips?  Is there a particular brand of pellets that seem to work better than the others?

    I have been fairly satisfied using chips but want to get the most I can out of this unit.  Thanks in advance for your assistance.

  2. I have an MES 30. I did use wood chips but I found that I was a slave to the smoker because I had to load chips every 30 to 40 minutes. I just recently converted and became a pellet user and it generates fantastic smoke. I purchased mine from A-Maz-N products, llc.   I purhased a 5 x 8 ANMPS unit from Todd who will provide directions on its use and placement in the MES 40. I also purchased a variety of pellets from him. Check announcements for May and you might find a discount coupon from Todd for a purchase over $50.00.

    With kind regards,
