Has anyone noticed a difference in the quality of the pellets in the last few months? When I first got my Traeger I noticed the pellets were roughly half inch to 3/4 inch in length. In the last few months I've noticed that are there are a large amount of pellets that are 1 inch to 1 - 1/2 inch to 2 inch in length or longer.

I've noticed that several of these longer pellet we'll reach the bottom of the hopper and block the smaller pellets from entering the auger. So basically my Traeger is running out of pellets with a full hopper.

I've resorted to having to snap the longer pellets in half as I'm slowly filling it.
