PG500 start failure

I just posted about the excellent pork butt we did and went out to do some bone-in chicken thighs. I cleaned out the burn chamber, placed perhaps ten pellets against the igniter and turned the grill on. It started to smoke after a couple of minutes, then it blew the GFI circuit. Reset, cleaned burn chamber completely, and restarted. In 5 minutes smoke, glowing pellets, but the fan didn't kick in and then 2 mins later the GFI blew.

Enough so I will bake it, but I can't figure out what is wrong.

Any suggestions?
