Considering I have about 10 bags of Traeger Pellets sitting in my garage, this caught my interest. Any comments, observations ?
I have been an owner of a ProSeries 34 for a year. When I purchased my only smoking experience was with a Masterbuilt. Enjoyed it and decided to dive in. Haven't had very good experience with it in my 3 attempts. Coming back to it now. :cautious:

There is already a thread on this topic [ Trouble for Traeger } do a search


The cheap wood is Alder and Oak. It turns out that some of the pellet choices are blends, this fact is not on the label. They also apparently use oils to flavour a more bland hardwood. so it imparts a mesquite flavour and aroma. To be honest I'm not unhappy with Traeger pellets it would have been nice if they included this info on the packaging,
