I see lots of info on pellet brands, but not too much on what flavor/type pellets are used &  best liked.

I see Hickory - Mesquite - Pecan - Cherry - Oak - Apple - Maple as some common types.

Thought this would be a good thread to state what pellets you keep in your personal stock and which one do you use the most?

I guess I have tried most of them, I like 'em all when used in the proper moderation. BUT I get all silly when I smell pecan smoke! Beautiful color and an excellent taste. Its really the only medium smoke IMHO. Everything else pretty much is heavy smoke or light smoke.

Nope. you just can't go wrong with pecan.

Hickory pellets are my favorite, go-to pellets.

I started with hickory and cookinpellets perfect blend. Like them both.

Just placed an order for mesquite and pecan.  It will take some time before I'll know which one gets used most. I can still count the number of cooks I've had on one hand...
