    Hi all. I have a question regarding my wood pellet smoker. Since I have started using it I have noticed that I am not getting as much bark on my cooks as I would like. The food is still tasting great but is lacking that desired outer texture. Has anyone else had issues with developing bark on a pellet smoker? What is the solution? Thanks for the tips!

    I have a Big Horn. I run my brisket and pork butts at around 225 to 250. I previously was smoking on a UDS at the same temps and would get real thick bark. Now i am not getting as much and was just wondering if this was common with pellet units or operator error

    It would seem that you would get bark with a pellet burner.

    Even the guys with watt burners get good bark.
