Wet Wood Pellets

Discussion in 'Woods for Smoking' started by ben franklin, Aug 7, 2011.

  1. I got careless and let most of a bag of pellets absorb moisture during the stormy week here in the Midwest. Just discovered it last night when I went to do a tri-tip. I have them spread on the patio to dry right now -- but they look more like sawdust for the Amaz'n than pellets for the Traeger. Any advice on how to salvage and / or use?

    All you can do is let them dry out naturally.

    Use em in your  AMZN

    The fan on your Traeger will make lots of blowing wood dust... Been there done that.
  4. Thanks guys!

    Just got them in ahead of the NEXT storm -- nasty around North Chicago this afternoon.

    After looking them over I will definitely use them as "dust". No way they would feed in the augur on the pellet pooper.

    Live (and read...) and learn!
