What are BBQ pellets?
BBQ pellets (or wood pellets) are the fuel source of pellet grills and smokers, made from only wood. Once your coals are completely covered in white ash and to a hot, even temperature, it’s time to add some BBQ pellets on top, creating a thin layer. Once the pellets ignite and start smoking, you are ready to start cooking your meat.
Free from fillers or binders, the choice hardwoods of Bear Mountain’s BBQ pellets create rich, smoky flavors to spice up any BBQ meal. These premium all-natural wood Bear Mountain pellets deliver you a perfect and clean smoke, and pair well with anything you’ve got cooking on the grill.
Consistency of flavor
Using 100% hardwoods is the key to a great blended product which is exactly what Bear Mountain provides. Other products may use cheap fillers such as poplar and oils to create flavor, and this is something you’ll want to avoid because they lead to inconsistent and poorly flavored food.
Different types of wood have different densities, burn at different rates, and can produce different amounts of smoke, heat and ash. Let’s take cherry for instance – it burns a lot faster than hickory. Therefore if you were to use 100% cherry, you’d end up burning through a lot more pellets – and a lot faster, mind you – than if you were to use 100% hickory.
On the other hand, it’s great to use an oak or alder base for consistent pellet performance in your grill. Oak allows each and every flavor to burn at a similar rate, moreover with a similar heat output which provides consistency between all cooks alike.
