Masterbuilt says I shouldn’t use wood pellets in my electric smoker but since rules are for bitches and people with common sense, I ignored that and put Kingsford Wood Pellets right into it. How? By smoking four sugar pumpkins in it per my annual autumn experimentation.
In fact, I’m actually digging the Kingsford pellets a lot more than wood chips. I seem to get a much cleaner smoke and I don’t need nearly so much refill, so often, to get that sweet smoky aroma going (10-20 pellets an hour worked great).
After 2 1/2 hours at 230 degrees F, all four pumpkins were perfectly smoked and ready for this year’s experiment: smoked pumpkin butter. I’ll share that recipe when it’s done but for now, here’s what I do for maple smoked pumpkin pie.
