Greetings Steve,
not sure about beechwood pellets. I’m not sure that I’ve seen any here. But google gave me this:
Good luck!

Any one over 60 will identify beechwood w/ Bud/ Bud Light..
Being a Lager the beechwood provides a happy home for the yeast to attach and propagate.
My little bit of knowledge for the day,

Goal is to make some Westphalian ham someday. I could potentially feed it acorns if I wanted but likely won't LOL

FYI I ordered some dust from the link I posted and it came yesterday. It is MUCH finer dust (actual sawdust I think) than the Amazen. I will report back on if and how it works but wanted to give anyone looking a heads up.

I might need to try the dust....

There are a number of us here that prefer dust over pellets. It's 2-3x less strong than pellets. I use dust for cured and cold/warm smoked stuff like hams and bacon but will use pellets for hot cooks like pork butt or ribs. The dust I got from Amazen is more like a shred and larger particle size than this stuff. It will be interesting if and how it works in the tray. I know it's gonna be messier and some will fall out. You can make dust from pellets using a wetting and drying method or grinding but admit I've gotten lazy. I bought 4lbs of the beech dust...

Never understood the beech wood aged promo.
There should a lot of used beech wood to make into pellets after AHB is done with them?

Maybe it is the same problem around here. No one wants to work anymore.
