Newbie (first post!) looking for info on pellet smokers. I wonder if there are any additives to the pellets, either to make them stick or whatever. My SO wants to know before we buy one. I have read that there are additives to charcoal to make it into briquets and am wondering if the same it true of pellets. I have access to a bunch of chunks of apple, oak, cherry and mesquite so I would like to find a gas smoker that doesn't use pellets if possible. Any help is appreciated.
