You can buy pellets pretty cheap if you shop around. I've seen them for as little as $14 per 40lb. bag delivered if you buy 50 bags on a skid. Otherwise watch for sales.
As far as charcoal vs. pellet cookers go. I use both and enjoy both. I prefer the flavor of charcoal and I enjoy the convenience of the pellet cooker. Just depends on my mood for that day's cook... Cheers!!!
