hmmm I need to do more research on how to get these lumberjack pellets in Utah. seems like a better deal and all the endorsements here make them seem hard to beat.

I usually use Louisiana brand. Several places locally carry them, and all varieties produce good smoke. Price is a little high at $35/40lbs, but still less than a $1.00/lb so I don't complain too much.

Hey!

Took everyone's advice on the Lumber Jack and ordered 200 pounds. If it's hard to get in your area, Dick Sporting Goods has them for $10 bucks a bag right now with FREE home delivery for orders over 25 bucks.

Definitely a steal where I live. Happy shopping.

I get mine through bbqpelletsonline.com. You need to buy 520# minimum. Price varies based on where you are located due to shipping costs. Prices shipped to California are currently around $8/20lbs

I had never even heard of Rural King, but I did a search and there was one about an hour away. Went out today and picked up 120lb of Comp Blend @ $8.88 per bag! They had less than half the "flavors", but for the price as long as they stock the Comp I wont complain. I'll probably stick to Comp Blend if they're good (I'll find out tomorrow). Thanks for the heads up!

Comp blend is all that I ever use also. I'm not a BBQ master, so I'm happy with the results.

I like the bear mountain gourmet blend. And coastal farm has them on sale often enough. I picked up 12 20lb bags a couple weeks ago for $80.

I have only used Lumber Jack (only had the pellet smoker for a week) and bought them because of what people say about them. They appear to be really good and real smokey. Bought 100% Pecan, 100% Apple, and Competition blend from Dicks on sale for $9.99 and then later when they went down to $8.99. The flavors were limited as it seems they are just trying to get rid of them.

220 pounds in total.

Lowe's has Pit Boss/Louisiana Grill competition blend pellets for $14.99 for 40# bag - I was going to grab a few but noticed that no one mentioned them in this thread! The local Dick's still has the Lumberjack (also competition blend) pellets at $10 for 20# bag... while I love a bargain I wouldn't mind paying a little more for a better product. Thoughts? Am I worrying about it too much??

Whatever is cheapest. I've used hundreds, if not thousdands of pounds of pellets for many many years and haven't found much of a difference honestly. I use bear mountain a lot as they're $9.99/20lb(that's regular, not sale price) and they review well and I don't have to drive far to get them. They do sell the lil' devil posted above at winco for $4.98/20lb and i've been meaning to try that. Lowes somewhat recently started getting a variety in and they're just down the street from my work so that's convenient. But whatever is cheapest.
Both lil devil and bear mountain are made in Oregon. I think traeger pellets as well.

They are garbage. Dont use them. Major regrets. All filler wood.
