    BBQer's Delight Charcoal Pellets

    Has anyone tried these pellets? What do you think of them? Do they give you higher btu for grilling/searing situations?

    I like them. I like to mix them with Hickory or Apple or all 3 together. No use in holding back. Maybe i'm crazy or imagining things, but when I use charcoal the smoke doesn't bother me as much when I open the lid to spray.

    I've used charcoal pellets and do not notice a difference in smoke flavor. Being 10 months new into pellet cooking I can't say I notice much of a smoke flavor with any of the different wood pellets I'm using. I think the reason might be due to using too much seasoning while cooking or I have to smoke the food longer at a lower temp. I see plenty of smoke coming off my 2 Star, just never seem to notice any smoke flavor. Maybe it's time to try mesquite pellets? This story refers to when I'm cooking eggs on the griddle but when I actually smoke a Cornish Game Hen all of the different variety of the wood pellets give off a nice, mellow, smokey flavor.

    Buy yourself a bag of charcoal pellets next time your in the market for pellets and give it a try. We all have different tastebuds and someone may tell you they don't care for charcoal pellets but you may just think they're out of this world.

    Seriously, I do have a couple bags of charcoal pellets and find all the other variety of wood pellets to be more enjoyable than the charcoal ones. That may be because I thought the charcoal pellets were going to flavor the food more like a charcoal grill and that just did not happen.

    I use them like BBQDad does mix with my hickory and sugar maple. I really like them when I cook burgers or dogs maybe my imagination too but seems to make a difference with flavor.

    Pellet cookers already have a light smoke flavor so I load my hopper up with wood to get as much as I can. I can't see thinning out the wood flavor pellets with charcoal. Seems to go against what I'm trying to get done.

    We have the charcoal pellets and really seem to like them. We generally use them with steaks and burgers.

    I bought the charcoal pellets thinking they has a higher BTU than other pellets. I agree that I cannot tell a difference in smoke flavors amongst the various pellet woods. Charcoal seems to be similar to all the other pellets in terms of BTU. in fact, I think OAK is best.

    Thanks thats what I was looking for if they had the higher BTU for grilling steaks and burgers.

    Think I will stick with oak.

    You know I think I read that charcoal was supposed to be higher btu, and then heard somewhere its not. I really don't know, but it feels to me like oak is probably the btu winner with hickory a short step behind.
