Need input

  1. So I need some input.
    I have a gmg pellet smoker
    I have a weber genises is propane bbq
    I cook outside with one of my grills at least 3 times a week year round. On my smoker I will do brisket, pork shoulder, lamb and sasauge, will also smoke peppers,tomatoes and do bbq beans.In my weber steaks, and rotisserie chicken. Last time I made sasauge a buddy came over and helped, we split the sasauge he took his home I told him how to hang it and smoke it. So , I made my sasauge it was great as usual. 2 weeks later he brought me a chunk of his sasauge. It was better. How can this be? He's new, I've beed doing it longer and it's my recipe. He uses a offset smoker and you could task the difference. My question is. Can I get more smoke flavor with my pelt smoker or do I need to buy a offset smoker. I love to cook and make sasauge. Meat is a true passion for me. Sometimes I will smoke a meat for hours then put a finish sear on it in my weber. So the idea of having another source of cooking is fine. The Gmg pellet smoker is great as I can start meat and go to bed, but I do enjoy babysitting my cooking projects. Looking for ideas. I want more some flavor, not overpowering.
    Thank gary

    Hey Gary,

    I know absolutely nothing about pellet smokers, so I'm probably not the best person to answer this question but since nobody else has taken a shot at it, I'm going to try and give you a few things to think about.

    You obviously like the taste of the sausage your buddy smoked.  How is his smoker producing heat, is is electric, propane, wood, charcoal?  What are you using?

    What wood or woods did he use?  How long did he smoke the sausage for?  What was the temp or temps?  Figure out what the differences between how you smoked the sausage and how he smoked the sausage are, and I think you will find your answer.

    I typically use my electric smoker just for the convenience, but I know I get better flavor when I use lump charcoal or wood.  These small things can and will make a difference in the final product.

    Good luck in your quest to find answers
