I have the Woodwind 24 same as you. I have high and Low smoke settings, temp range 175-500. Mine was purchased right before the WiFi controller came out, not sorry, don't need it.
It's not very often i need a bigger Smoker than a 24, if i did i would breakout the Oklahoma Joe's 34 inch Highlander offset stick burner though.
That's a whole lot more work, but real wood does produce better flavor.
That's my Lazy summer weekend day Smoker, i'm done with those overnight Brisket Cooks with the Stick burner. The Pellet Smoker has spoiled me.

I was going to say that's an impressive smoker to be able to cook that many cuts at one time. My kamado here can hold either a large brisket or two shoulders but not both. I'll have to do some reading on the Woodwind 36.

Was considering a custom built offset drum smoker at one point though they're a bit spendy and need to periodically stock up on split oak to stock it. There was a company down in the oilfields near Luling that makes them to order.

So... Jeremy is applying the tallow treatment for briskets to ribs with lard.... it looks REALLY compelling and makes perfect sense.
Changing it up going with butcher paper rather than foil too.
Good timing for him to put this out right before the fourth too :thumbsup2:
If you are planning on doing some ribs, you may want to give it a try.

So I started using applewood pellets. Did a rack of ribs and had a bit of hotdog flavor. I chalked it up to brining of the ribs. But I just did beer can chicken and noticed after breaking down the chicken that my hands smelled a bit like hotdog.

Anyone else experience this?

Never once used their pellets so I dunno. Heard plenty of not great comments about Traeger pellets though.

I use Apple and Apple Mash pellets with great results. A bit like sweet Alder, and Apple Mash actually you can think "apple". I use LumberJack and Premium Cookinpellets

I just got this smoker so I've been at the mercy of whatever is left on the store shelves. When stock gets better I plan on picking up different brands.

Traeger Pellets are not the wood the "Flavor" on the bag says. It's a filler wood with "Flavoring" added. You want pellets that are 100% the Wood the bag says.
Read the labels carefully.

Makes sense to me. The pellet is to a log like a hot dog is to a rib.

TubeTimber = TubeSteak. :popcorn:

A pellet is pretty much the lips n assholes of the tree! :rofl9:

I have used Traeger applewood pellets many times. If your end product taste like hot dogs, I think you're doing it wrong. :bigsmile:

The pellets I was getting were an oak base, so I haven't had any of their alder based pellets out here in the PNW. Maybe that's the difference?

I'm experimenting with a number of different pellet brands on my new Woodwind. Not really had a bad experience with anything so far. The hot dogs tasted like hot dogs, brats like brats, burgers like burgers, pork shoulder like pork shoulder, brisket like brisket....

Hmm. I just realized I have yet to cook chicken on the new pellet grill. I must remedy that with some marinated chicken thighs here pretty soon.
