So put the bacon on this morning witht the Amaz smoker. Got it going for a while, went to church, came bavka and didnt see thw typical smoke, thought it had gone out, nope, the pellets caught fire and started cooking the bacon.

I know it didnt ruin it, just frudtrated it isn't how I wanted it.

    Hmm...that is really odd. How long was it smoldering before you left? I've had mine quit burning after only a couple minutes and I've relit it to make sure it had a good start, but never had it light back up on me.

    I had the same issue with pellets going out. I had success when I loaded up the tray with pellets and put it in the oven at 200 for 20 minutes to dry it out. Then I hit it with the torch and let the flame really burn good for 15 minutes before blowing it out.

    @henapple, no biggie.

    Just pulled it and fried some up, delicious. Better than the last batch.

    Threw it in the fridge so I can slice it up on the new slicer.

    Now we will have 15lbs of cottage bacon.
