Are those pellets especially formulated for cooking? Plain old wood pellets (the kind for heating your house) are only $4-$5 for a 50lb bag around here. Supposedly the heating kind are 100% hardwood with no binders.

That ones debated on pellet head forums as often as oils are debated on gear head forums. My opinion, all pellets need a binder in the process to make a pellet hold it's shape - I want to be certain the binder is food grade. Heating pellets contain bark along with hardwood which effects temperature and contributes to increased ash buildup. Heating pellets are typically oak which is OK for heat but Hickory, Mesquite, Apple & Alder have flavor.

There are some high quality heating pellets out there that I wouldn't hesitate in using if my goal is to turn up the heat and sear some flesh. For smoking, low heat / long time make good eatin.

I have used my Bradley smoker before with no complaints about the smoke. The delicious smell makes people wonder what is going on.

A few years back, the guys at our campsite, in Marquette MI, got asked to help our neighbors throw a fully dressed hog onto a bbq trailer late one night. Lets just say it was heavy and bloody on a tarp. But, WOW, it tasted soooo good the next afternoon after we joined their group picnic!!! They invited us over, since we helped the night before.

Sidenote:
I actually have 14# of ribs in my fridge right now, waiting to hit the smoker tomorrow!!


I think if you bring a smoker to the CG.....you are easily the coolest person there!!! I guarantee you will make friends with your neighbors. Om nom nom...

If anyone complains about the smell from your smoker, tell them that you threw a pound of carrots in there just for them.

Please, hard to believe anyone would complain about a smoker unless you had it set up 5' from their open window. the only thing I seen that will prompt a complaint almost every time is a loud gen or a loud drinking party after quiet hours. Smoking brisket or ribs might attract varmits or new friends, but complaints? I think not!

I'm subscribing to this thread. Besides having a mild interest in the Traeger, I've been considering getting myself one of the newer Weber 14" Smokey Mountain Cookers. I use a 22.5" at home a lot and once I saw the new one, I saw the potential for its "on the road" use. Anyone have one?

I'm in the same boat as you! I have the 22.5" WSM too,made ribs yesterday, and would love to have the smaller 14" WSM for it's compact size, and to bring with me camping! Can't justify the $$ right now though.
