Default Grilling Pellets

I just discovered that the local Menards now has Pit Boss grills, and after doing research online, found the BBQ Brethren! I've been pellet grilling since '06 on a Traeger Li'l Tex, and WOULD NEVER go back to charcoal or gas!

That being said, I noticed the discussion of pellets used, and have found pellets locally (central Wisconsin) that are in the $13/40 lb bag variety, and obviously no shipping. They're from Lumber Jack brand, located in northwestern Wi., Hayward, Wisconsin. Large variety (12) including blends. Check out glrepellets.com.

I have no clue where Pit Boss is located either, but their website mentions Mountain Time.

Here is a pic of a bag. It's a 40lb. bag for $22. There was no other writing on the back of the bag.


This bag was a mix of cherry/maple/hickory, but they also had apple and hickory. Reading their website it sounds like all good stuff, no fillers, glues, chemicals, etc.

Has anyone used these pellets? They sound good and the price is very nice, but is it too good to be true?
I've never heard of them but I do know Academy Sports B&B Apple Pellets are absolutely delicious and only $11.99 a bag for $20 pounds. Also I have no problems with ash with the B&B pellets.

The B&B are rebranded BBQer's delight. They also used to be $10.99 a bag. My Academy Sports just quit selling them. I called and asked which stores still had them (I'm near Greenville, SC) and the closest store that had them was Washington DC they told me.

So, I ordered a pallet load of BBQer's delight. With Shipping it ended up being about $11 per bag so almost the same price except that now I have to store all these pellets.

Pit Boss is the low end big box store brand for Dansons (Louisiana Grills). I believe that Dansons manufactures all of their own pellets and they use maple as the primary hardwood. Comp blend is 1/2 maple, 1/4 hickory, 1/4 cherry. Other flavors are mostly 40% flavor and 60% maple. Should be a decent pellet, but I haven't used them.

Also, shipping from WI to IA should be cheap. I shipped a ton of Lumberjacks to NE last year for under $100.
