Chris has only had the mix since last spring due to supply problems. I've used his Hickory, Cherry, and the Mix. I really liked them all. The mix is a mellow blend in my opinion and I believe it is what most of his restaurant customers use. I have also used Candy Sues (http://www.bbqrsdelight.com/
) but when I was lookiing they were more expensive. I can find these in Orschelins around here.
Traegers pellets are made with a high percentage of alder wood (60-80% if recall correctly). I very much prefer the pellets without the filler such cookin's and bbqrs.
