wood pellets in a electric smoker

  1. If you use wood pellets like traeger pellets in an electric smoker do you soak the pellets in water or do you use the pellets dry?

    never soak pellets, they swell up.
    I used pellets more than a few times on my MES, they worked very well.

    this probably goes without saying, but it is important to remember to use FOOD GRADE wood pellets; those used for pellet stoves contain lord-knows-what.
