Smoker pellets in a pack of 1 kg.
The most significant advantage of the pellet is a long burning time. It’s somewhat more difficult to light, therefore a separate firelighter blocks are required. The pellets can burn up to 24 hours.
One layer of pellets is placed on the bottom of the smoker. Then a piece of ignition plate or ignition buttons lit and maybe a couple more slices of porous plate or similar. Pour the pellet on the edges of the smoker. The bellows are then pumped until the pellets are burning, not only the firelighter block. Finally, top the smoker with a fresh grass or moss. This produces a cool smoke that does not make the bees panic. The grass also prevents the granules from draining from the smoker’s nozzle when tilted.
