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 all Apple by saying "No Fillers" and "Apple Flavor." But upon closer inspection you find it's only 40% apple and 60% oak or alder. There are very few 100% flavor wood pellets BBQ Delight makes some and so does Lumber Jack. I would rather make my own mixes or use the real deal. If anyone knows of a good source of a 100% pellets other than mentioned above, please post.

    Thanx Bmudd...I love his Maze style pellet smoke generator. It makes life much less complicated.
