What's the best way to get bulk pellets? Do teams usually join forces and buy in bulk? Anyone in Iowa (or who will be attending Iowa comps) interested?

I was talking to Shotgun the other day, and he was telling me you were their bbqers delight hookup at the qlossal last year, Bob. Just a one time thing?

I would be interested in a bulk order as well if Candy or someone else can hook us northern folk up with some Delight...

Iowa/local Brethern, PM me with how many lbs you want and I'll get a bulk deal put together.

Sounds good, Don. Can you all give me some indication of how many lbs I'll need? Never cooked on an FEC and I'm not real sure. How much should I expect per cook?

I might be in on that too. How many pounds on a pallet? They come 10lb bags and there are 4 bags in a shrink wrap.

I'm ordering one today from Candy if anyone from my area needs some. Or if not from my area, I also travel a little......

The more u order the cheaper it gets. I just ordered 2100lbs from Candy. order in 40lb increments. (4-10# bags per sleeve) They came on one pallet. Came to just under 5$ a bag shipped to NY.

I have been burning pellets since 2007.
I have tried about every supplier out there.
Because of my location in the FL Panhandle, each and every pellet has to be shipped in.

I burn about 1/2 lb/hr at 250 deg in my FEC. About 3/4 lb/hr at 300 deg or when using pure fruit pellets with lower BTU/hr output.
My Traeger Lil Tex burns about twice that.

My favorite is CookingPellets, because they are 100% flavorwood and a quality pellet.
But---over $1.25/lb with shipping. OUCH.

I have changed to Candy Sue's and they work great. Another quality pellet. They are blended with Oak, but I have learned to live with that.

I finally bit the bullet and bought a 400# bulk order from Candy Sue late last year. Cost about $260 or 65 cents per lb.
Great move.

I thought it seemed like a lot of $, but I used to spend way more than that maintaining my charcoal, chunks, and firewood inventory.
The pellets have an infinite shelf life (unlike smoker wood) if they are kept dry.

I just looked today and I am down to about 150# and need to be thinking of a re-order.
And, I only cook Comps and a limited amount of recreational cooking.

What I am trying to say is:
Don't be afraid of a 400# order for yourself--it is not really all that many $$ and works well.
You will have so much fun--you will go through that before you know it. It just SOUNDS like a lot :redface:

Good luck.

Then there's the pellet mill I have for sale in my warehouse barely used - including shipping $4,000.
22rpm's, nice unit would do the job - learn how to make them and solve any issue of supply forever.
just a thought :idea:

I pay $748 for a pallet 2000 pounds delivered to NJ for BBQers delight. You save a ton of money ordering bulk.

I am figuring around .40 for the order I'm getting with BBQr's Delight. I think the best pellet out there.

2100/40=52.5 :confused::confused::confused: love that Poobah math!

I'm coming to pick mine up on Monday! I expect lunch:becky:

We just did a group order of BBQr's Delight out here in Denver of around 45,000#, and got the price down to around $.38/lb (it varied depending upon the type of wood). We're sorting the load tomorrow morning.

Ok Einstein your bill $270 / 54 bag = $5 per bag and there is a couple of smoke sticks in there too. So that was about 5 bucks a bag shipped to NY. I think the actual pellet cost was around $650. The rest was shipping.


BTW, Bourbon "spilled" on your bags.

I won't be at the GAB or Westmont (though I'm thinking about the LPQ now!) I have a comp in the middle of May - so I'll try and hook up with Boondoggle. Thanks for the offer, though!!

Really??? What kind of pellet mill? I'd like to find a small one for small runs...have a lead on some wood used in wine making. Would need a small run machine to do it.

Thanks for all the kind words, my bbq brothers!

So, where are we at with this? I hate to sound like I'm in too much of a hurry - but I will need to have pellets so that I can get practicing with my FEC. From what I understand the Traeger pellets that come with it are not all that great. If it helps, I can contact Candy since I'm the one being a geek about getting these things ASAP :redface:

Whatever works

I have contacted Candy and got the price list. I don't have it with me , so will send out the info tonight. We need to order 2000lbs as a group to make this work.
