Try The Charcoal Store as a source for pellets. I use them all the time ALL WOOD pellets, and free shipping, one bag or multiples. No off odors like I noticed with Traeger pellets, just smoke. They seem to last longer (burn slower/hotter) too.

There prices are crazy high. Well over $1.00 a lb. I can get GMG pellets locally for .80c.
Looking to do a bulk group buy of lumberjack pellets. Half ton shipped for .50c, and full ton for .34c

Heads up - Sears.com has Pit Boss Competition Blend pellets on sale at 20.95 per 40lb bag with free ship to store or free shipping on $49+ orders.

 

Stack SEARS5OFF50 code for $5 off of $50 orders and use Discover card Discover Deals for 10% cash back bonus on Sears online orders.  

 

Should net out to about 43.4 cents per pound / $17.36 per 40lb bag (plus tax) for three bags either store-pickup or delivered.

Sorry I meant Pit Boss Competition Blend, 40lbs.  Todd's Pitmasters is kick-ass too.  I'm trying the Pit Boss pellet this time as a bunch of people in another post said they were good.  Jury is till out but for the price, it looks like a great deal with free shipping to my door.

Here's another angle on minimizing the cost of pellets.  Bear Mountain pellets are high quality and work well in all pellet smokers, and are very inexpensive. I get them for about 50 cents a pound at our local Cash and Carry.

 

However, all of their different "flavors" are built on a base of 75% alder, as they are located in Oregon where alder is plentiful. Most other pellet blends s are built on an oak base. This means, even if you get Bear Mountain's hickory blend, it produces a very mild smoke. They make no 100% options.  If you prefer the milder smokiness, this could be a great, inexpensive go-to pellet option.

 

Since I prefer my meats at the high end of the smokiness spectrum, I use the more expensive 100% hickory pellets (Lumberjack, BBQ'rs Delight) for the first 4-5 hours of my long slow smokes (until bark fully developed), then switch to Bear Mountain for the rest of the cook.  If I'm doing poultry, I might go with Bear Mountain (cherry, hickory, or maple blend) the whole cook. 

 

The final rub :tongue: is that there are many local Bear Mountain dealers on the west coast, but fewer as you head east.  You can access their dealer map at http://bmfp.com/dealer-locator/ On their site, you can also order in bulk.
