I am getting ready to smoke for th efirst time on my new Wrangler. Am I supposed to soak the pellets prior to using them or use them dry? Also do the pellets actually catch on fir in the drawer?

No, do not soak the pellets. They don't catch fire, they smoke. Give them time to start smoking before you add the food.

If you have a pellet drawer you're in for a treat.

Load the drawer about halfway with pellets, but leave it open. Fire up the grill and allow it to preheat. Just a minute or two before adding your food, shut the drawer. This will give you maximum smoke during the early cooking minutes when the smoke really penetrates the food.



I smoked a whole chicken with the applewood chips. It was so good that the grandkids ate all of it instead of the pizza they were supposed to have so I only got a small piece! Gotta love it!
