    What Pellet Brand Are You Using?

    I was curious about the brand of pellets the people on this forum use. I am looking to spend no more than $1 a pound.

    I use Lumber Jack Comp MHC and get it for $10/20lb bag out the door from a household vender locally. I like things as simple as they can be and using only one flavor pellet for ALL my cooks is as simple as it gets. I am NOT a BBQ competitor and I cook to please myself only. I'm a very happy pellet cooking novice.

    CookinPellets Perfect Mix - $37/40 lb bag off Amazon Prime (no shipping cost). CookinPellets Black Cherry off Amazon Prime for $37.50/40 Lb bag. I've also done 100% Applewood and 100% Oak. Oak in pellet form is getting hard to find - Lumberjack has discontinued theirs although there a few bags left on Amazon.

    All these are under $1.00/Lb.

    I'm using some BBQer's Delight, but mainly Lumber Jack because I can get it locally. Both are great pellets. I have also used some CookingPellets Perfect Mix (which burn even better mixed 50/50 with oak).

    Lumber Jack has not discontinued 100% oak as far as I know. It's still listed on their website, and I still get it locally to mix with 50/50 with Apple, Hickory, MHC blend (a.k.a. Competition Blend), etc.

    I like getting the 100% Apple, Hickory & MHC Blend to use in my A-Maze-N tube for cold smoking, then mix them 50/50 with oak for use in the hopper. Mixed 50/50 with oak they burn cleaner, with no notable change in flavor.

    Hmmm. Lumberjack's Amazon page says it is "discontinued by manufacturer". I assumed this was LJ's decision as many of their other pellets do not have that statement on Amazon. I never went to their site as I have Amazon Prime, so no shipping costs and fast delivery make it my "go to" for most things.
