Are you considering upgrading your grilling experience? It might be time to start using BBQ pellets. Grilling pellets are a very clean fuel that will impart a delicious smoky flavor to your meat. Whether you’re grilling steaks or frying chicken wings, using BBQ smoke pellets instead of gas or charcoal ensures you have complete control over the temperature and flavor of your food.

What are BBQ pellets?

Grilling pellets, sometimes called cooking pellets, grilling pellets, or smoking pellets, are a type of fuel primarily used in pellet grills. A pellet grill is a specialized type of grill known for its precise temperature control, versatility, and ability to infuse delicious flavors into the meat. You can use barbecue wood pellet grills among other types.

The exact ingredients in barbecue pellets depend on the brand and type. Most are made from hardwood species including hickory, applewood, cherry, oak, and alder. BBQ pellets go through a manufacturing process to ensure they won’t leave bark or dirt marks like you’d find in natural wood products.

Grilling grains are very thin and add smoky flavor and texture to your meat as they burn.

Finally, from a grilling standpoint, using pellets makes it easy to control the temperature of your grill. By controlling the temperature, you’re more likely to get an evenly cooked meal.
