Pellet Smoker FAQs


How Long Do Pellets Last In A Hopper?

How you use the smoker will determine how long the pellets will last in the hopper. The main factors include the hopper size, the temperature you are cooking at as well as how long you cook for. The more intense the flame, and the longer you run the smoker, the quicker you will burn through the pellets.


Can I Use Different Types Of Pellets In My Smoker?

The best thing about pellet smokers is you can use whatever type of pellets you prefer. Feel free to experiment with a range of pellets to find the flavour profile you like best. As you would expect, pellets with a fruity note will lead to sweeter tastes whereas something like hickory will promote a dark, rich aroma and flavour. In terms of pairing the pellets with your food, you might be inclined to try something mild like maple for a delicate dish like fish. Strong notes of hickory may be too overpowering so do be mindful of how you smoke your food.


How Often Should I Clean My Pellet Smoker?

We would recommend cleaning the pellet smoker every time you opt for a different pellet type because you may experience a sort of cross-contamination with conflicting aromas and flavours. To do this, let the pellet smoker run for a few minutes after changing the pellets to ensure that you not only clear what was left behind but you allow sufficient time for the new pellets to kick in.


How Do I Season My Pellet Smoker?

This really depends on the type of pellet smoker that you have but generally, it is a fairly simple process if you are firing it up for the first time. As always, read the guidelines from the manufacturer first. Always read the manual before doing anything just in case there is a safety feature or specific sequence to follow for your BBQ equipment.


How Do I Know When My Meat Is Done Cooking?

It is just like cooking with any other appliance. Most meats have a recommended cook time at specific temperatures. The same applies to a pellet smoker. The food should be cooked all the way through which you can confirm by cutting a slice and ensuring there are no raw or undercooked sections in the middle.
