I did use red wine. Cheap stuff, just right for cooking. Had dark beer on hand, but drank that and cooked with the wine. Decisions, decisions.

I love my pellet smoker. I had an el cheapo charcoal style smoker for a few years and got fed up trying to manage my temps, and keep the fire going, especially in the dead of winter.
I did a ton of research and at the end of it, for me and my budget, I bought a Green Mountain Grill Daniel Boone w/remote.
This thing is simply awesome. I've smoked the Christmas turkey in the dead of winter...to perfection. Ribs, beef roasts, pulled pork, burgers, smoked eggs and potato's for potato salad, made the best ABT's on the smoker. If it walked away tomorrow i'd buy another in a heartbeat.
My GMG has a remote so I can adjust/control the pit temp. from inside the house, as well as that it will show me the internal food temp, and warn me if the pellet hopper is getting low. It will cook from 150* up to 500* (gotta try pizza on this thing at some point).
I buy the Louisina grill pellets from our local Canadian Tire. They sell for $20 for a 20 pound bag. At the normal 225* I seem to figure using a pound of pellets an hour.
I've only tried the Traeger cherry pellets and didn't like them, they felt like they gave of a sooty feel to them. However, I haven't yet tried any other Traeger pellets.
I like my GMG Daniel Boone so much I'm going to buy the portable Davy Crockett this summer when he get to Oregon.
One reason I chose the GMG over the similarly sized Traeger, is that the GMG seems to have more vertical space inside. I've added a second layer of racks to take advantage of the space.

Honestly, if someone is considering a smoker, I'd really recommend looking at a good quality pellet grill. With all due respect to the Bradley's out there, I've tried pork shoulder from a Bradley and their is absolutley no comparison between an electric heated "smoker" and a wood-fired smoker. Anyways, just my .02.

I always tell people if you don't want to buy a pellet grill then don't ever eat off one...Ten years ago after I bought my first one my friends tasted some of my cooks then bought their own pellet grills. Now most of my friends are pelletheads too. I have no way of verifying it but I bet a least five different people that I have met while smoking something while camping have bought grills. All I have to do is fire the grill up while camping and let the smoke permeate through the campground, instant friends are made.
Once while camping along the Oregon coast this ole timer came over to check things out. I gave him my pellet grill pitch as I was smoking some ribs. After he left he returned with three of his camping buddies and asked if I would show them how a pellet grill works. I'm thinking those guys are burning pellets now..
In my opinion it really doesn't matter if you get a high end model or a lower end model with a good reputation, minus a few extra features they can all cook with the same wood pellets giving the same flavor profile to your cooks. You just can't beat the ease of use with them. No messy charcoal, no flare ups or drying out of meats from the gaser, just a great flavor added from the type of wood pellets being used. Just make sure the hopper is full, turn it on, and grab a beverage of your choice and let the grill work it's magic...
