    Deceptive Labeling on smoker pellets

    If you're a newbie, beware of the deceptive labeling on smoking pellets. Old timers know that the pellet companies will often label pellets as a flavor wood in large type "Apple" followed by 100% Hardwood. Right there you know you're getting a blend. They will try to persuade you that it's...

    I have been reading quite a few posts where people are paying $1 or more per pound for pellets. It also seems that the Lumberjack pellets are fairly popular. I felt the need to pass this information along to those that may be looking for cheaper pellets. "Rural King" and "Big R" has them for...

    I've been reading about people talking about using their MES and a pellet tool to generate smoke. A lot are speaking of the continued need to produce TBS as opposed to the white smoke due to creosote. Most MES owners I talk to who use the AMNPS say that there is no need to pull the chip tray...

    A-MAZE-N pellets pricing

    Where's the best place/pricing to pickup some A-MAZE-N pellets? I'd love to get them direct from their website, but their shipping costs to the West Coast basically double the price of the item, and the $49 threshold for free shipping is a bit steep for me. I see Home Depot has the free ship...

    I saw a thread at Pelletfan about using pellets for wood stoves in a pellet smoker. So I decided to give it a shot. I found 40lb bags of Premium Hardwood Heating Pellets at a local Menards in the Twin Cities for $4. I picked up 2 bags and have used them twice with perfectly fine results. I...
