Pitboss pellet for snack sticks

  • Hello everyone. Currently I’m making some snack sticks in the Masterbuilt Sportsman Elite electric smoker. While it works great for jerky there just isnt much room for hanging snack sticks. Has anyone tried using a pitboss pellet smoker and just folded the sticks back and fourth on the grate? Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks

    Craig Stockman Yeah, I have laid out snack sticks before and I know a lot of other people do it as well. Its not as good as hanging but it certainly works perfectly well. One tip is instead of folding them just cut them to the max length that will fit, that way you don’t hve as many bent pieces?

    Is a pit boss smoker a pellet grill? I use a bull rack on my green mountain when I make sticks I can get 10lbs of sticks on my bull rack E54A5B83-14C6-4E85-8555-B716044A3610.png

    Craig Stockman I have a Masterbuilt electric smoker and the last time I made snack sticks I coiled them up and put them on the racks. I pulled the racks out and coiled as much as I could on each rack. If I remember correctly I was able to fit about 10-15 lbs in there. Probably closer to 10 lbs, I thought I took pictures of it but I can’t find any so I may just be having a senior moment. The only draw back in my opinion is you won’t have any straight pieces so they don’t “look” like a snack stick.

  • I do mine on a traeger. Got a little over zealous and mixed about 18 lbs today. I have the smoking rack and I fit them all in but didnt have any space between them. Seemed to cook ok. I had 2 probes in different areas. I prop the door open a bit for the first hour or so. IMG_2715.jpg
