    Kruizer, look them up on Sportmans Warehouse or Dicks Sporting goods, they are $12.99/bag and with Sportsmans if you spend $49 you get free shipping. That is what I am doing when them and I love these pellets, they burn with very little ash.

    Academy Sports and Outdoors has B and B Competition Blend pellets at $19.99 40lb. Bag. I’ve smoked on them twice now. A butt, ribs and chicken. I like the B and B. I’ve been a fan of their charcoal for a long time.
    Id also like to add that while I am experienced in many different cooker types, I am new to a pellet machine. However the Cooks turned out well using B and B and had no issues. B

  8. I've bought Traeger in the past because of the availability but I just bought a variety from Walmart of Oak/Hickory and the blend and so far so good AND 40lbs was same price as 20lb for the Traeger brand!
     
  9. Did some research (have been using GMG pellets) and decided to try Lumberjacks. Found a dealer in Melbourne, FL (roughly 60 mi north of me) and drove up to get a bag for me, as well as one for my nephew. Trying the 100% Pecan (for me) and the 100% Hickory. Cost was over $60. Thought this a bit out of line. Further research (after the fact of course) showed that Dick's Sporting Goods carries them. Closest "Dick's" is 20 minutes from me. Cost is much more reasonable to boot!

    $60 for 2 20# bags?
     
  11. That is correct. Knew I was overpaying at the time. Would not buy them, or anything else from dealer.

    Midwest wise we got Earth Sense/PelletHead, their brand is called Uncle Jed's. Their self brand is 25 pounds bags for 17 USD a bag. They also market the Green Mountain Grill brand at 20 dollars for a 28 pound bag. Since we buy all our pellets for our pellet stove from them I intend to use them for my pellet needs. A bag from there would likely last me an entire year.

    Dang, I wish there was way to give feedback to Lumberjack about that, thats like double what I see them going for from local guys.

    $8.99 a 20lbs bag at rural king here ,only bad thing is limited flavors
     
  15. Just an FYI. Dick's will pricematch Rural King's price on lumberjack pellets and still ship free to home. I bought 9 20lb bags for around 84 dollars. If you want multiple flavors it's better to order them one at a time. The manager I dealt with needed approval from a higher up and a special code to price adjust the whole order but they can do one item in the store easily. He was very nice about it but it took forever.
