I've been using pellets for cold smoking sausage, cheese, and cured meats (bacon, ham, ect)..
I have been buying pellets through doitbest.com to get pellets without shipping. I just visited the Traeger site
and found that when buying 2) 20 Lb bags you get free shipping, a free bottle of BBQ sauce, and a Traeger Cookbook.
I recently started mixing them into my lump and was surprised with the successful smoke and the flavor imparted on a cook, not a cold smoke.
I have always heard that pellets do not give off as much smoke flavor as wood chunks do, but I have not seen that problem here. I mixed the pellets in with my lump and it has worked well on my last two cooks even though I am not cooking in my pellet pooper.
Not sure if anyone else is looking for pellets with free shipping, but I thought it is a good deal for use with my A-Maze-N Pellet smokers as well as using with my charcoal.
