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 would compare them to typical competition blends. According to their website it's likely oak/maple. I haven't used them on an extended low and slow cook yet but so far so good. The only downside is you don't know exactly what wood it is. But as long as it's hardwoods, you're good to go. At the very least I'll use these for high heat grilling.
