The smoke doesn't really sink into the meat, it just sits on the surface AFAIK.
The smoke ring isn't smoke.

Just use a blend of the bags, maybe fruit with gold if the gold is too heavy. Personally I wouldn't faff about.

I have used the "Lil Devils" pellets they sell. I quite like them, although I feel they are quite mild. - at first I found them a bit meh, in terms of not being very pronounced in taste, but then I got used to them, and grew to like them.

They are definitely a bargain pellet.

The only reason I am not using them is that twice I have had orders placed with LWP, and simply not heard anything from them. Both times, they were out of stock, but they didn't inform me of of this - just acknowledged the order and then sat on it, until - weeks later - I called them to ask where the pellets were. "Oh, we're still waiting, it's going to be another 6 weeks".

When it happened the second time, it peeved me enoough that I simply cancelled the order and switched back to ABC.
