The Beginners Guide to BBQ Pellets


Barbecue pellets are small pieces of compressed organic material that have been processed to remove any dust, dirt, and other contaminants. They burn cleaner than charcoal briquettes and produce little ash. 


Pellets can be made from a variety of sources including hardwoods such as oak, hickory, pecan, or fruit woods such as apple or cherry. Barbeque pellet grills use these small pieces of compressed organic material in place of the charcoal briquettes traditionally used by many grillers. The result is food that tastes better with less work!

Benefits of Using Pellet Grills

Pellet grills can make your life a lot easier and offer a variety of benefits such as the following:


  • They are versatile as you can barbeque, smoke, roast, grill, or bake in a pellet grill.

  • Pellet grills are capable of heating up within ten to fifteen minutes.

  • Given pellet grills allow for temperature control in five-degree components, this allows for heat control.

  • You don’t have to worry about over-smoking food on a pellet grill, and the smoke flavor is rather subtle than what you might get from wood or charcoal fire.

  • Pellet grills function similar to a convection oven, which allows for even cooking of foods.

  • They come in a variety of flavors such as hickory, pecan, alder, mesquite, cherry, apple, maple, and so much more.
