Wood Smoking Pellets

edited 10:11AM in EggHead Forum
I have found a web site that sells wood pellets for smoking. No soaking required and they work better than wood chips. They have hickory, mesquite, cherry, oak, apple, alder, pecan, maple, and pecan. The web site is I discovered these pellets at a BBQ store in Tulsa, OK and will not go back to wood chips. Let me know how well you like them. Kent

    Kent Charles, I have heard of the big time heavy duty smoker chefs using em. And liking em. Hope they work out for ya. I even heard a rumor that they have a auger delivery to the cookers..keeps the fire perking along. Now I gotta drill a big hole in the side of my BGE to keep up with the Jones Boys..:-)
    (I am kidding I hope...)

    Kent Charles,[p]I tried them - didn't like them. Don't add water or you'll have sawdust pudding. They just seemed too small to smoke at anything less than the Egg's very lowest attainable temps. I prefer chips or chunks.[p]Tim
