I love my Traeger smoker and it has worked amazing for me! I have not been able to find a good selection of pellets in my area in Phoenix, AZ. I have been running mainly Traeger pellets since I got the grill last summer. I did one bag of apple pellets from Sweet Home Pellets, but was having some temperature stability issues. Not sure if it was moisture issues or the temp gauge reading wrong. Does anyone here run a Traeger with other brand pellets? I know they say to only run their pellets but I don't see how it's an issue as long as they are food grade. What manufactures provide the best pellets? I mainly do chicken, pork and beef on my smoker. Does anyone have a good brand they prefer? How do they compare to the Traeger pellets?
