Looking for advice from pellet heads and purveyors: After cooking overnight just fine, I found my pit temp start to drop slowly. Looked in the fire box and both slides were backed up with pellets, and the pots were flaming but completely full of pellets and there was clearly no appreciable air flow to them. I reset the pit, screaped the pots out ass best I could and restarted, and within an hour it happened again.

It was pouring all night and today- could the humidity have affected the pellets in the hopper? It's not like I've never cooked in the rain, so this is a first.

Normally I use hickory pellets, this time was cherry if that makes a difference.
