Avoid pellets that don't explicitly state the species of hardwood used; "hardwood" on its own just doesn't do it!
ONLY use food-safe hardwood pellets. Heating pellets are cheaper but may contain bitter softwoods and residues or materials dangerous to health.
NEVER let hardwood pellets get wet. If exposed to excessive moisture they will expand, degrade, and set like concrete - damaging equipment.
WOOD-TYPES, WOOD FLAVOURS
Different hardwoods impart different flavour notes to different foods... rubbed with different spices/herbs and mopped or served with different sauces! They also burn at different temperatures. If you're after pellets for cooking at higher temperatures, you might want to choose a blend containing oak.
This is why we stock over 15 different types of hardwood pellet.
COOKSHACK pellet blends are commercial grade and can be found in many of the UK's leading BBQ joints.
GMG blends are great value for everyday backyard cooking.
SMOKE RING and LUMBER JACK pellets give you no-nonsense 100% wood flavour, on their own or as part of a mix.
