I seem to have heard that you should not use pellets in a Masterbuilt electric smoker. Could someone explain to me why? I smoked a brisket, a pork shoulder and two racks of ribs yesterday. 20 hours total smoking time. I bought the a-maze-n pellet smoker because I saw several posts on here where they had quite a bit of success with it in their Masterbuilt. However, it didn't work for me. I couldn't keep it lit. So, I just went back to my wood chips. Then, about halfway through cooking, I started to get low on wood chips. I knew I was going to run out. I slowly started to add pellets to the wood tray until I ran out of wood chips and i was smoking with pellets alone. Honestly, I didn't see i problem with it at all. Actually, the pellets produced way better smoke than the chips did and all the meat came out wonderful. Even better than some commercial BBQ places. What's the big "No No" about? Thanks in advance for all responses and help.
