Started competing in chili cookoffs back in the 1990's and have competed in more than I care to count. I became a CBJ in MiM in 2005, then MBN and in GBA in 2010. I've probably judged 130+- BBQ comps (sanctioned and unsanctioned) over this time. That said, I really enjoy competing more than I enjoy judging, and hope to get back to doing 4 or 5 a year in the near future.

Default pecan shells

I get mine from Oliver Pecan in San Saba, Tx. They will even ship them to you. Can't remember the cost but I think it is around .50/lb.

I buy 50# of pecans every year for my wife to use in baking for the holidays and since i have to shell them i always have a nice stash of shells. Keep them in a plastic container or something similiar cause bugs have a way of getting to them.Also if you happen to get a whole pecan, they have a tendency to explode in the fire.

I called Oliver Pecan in San Saba, TX (Thanks for the tip Sioux). I just asked for a few pounds, or whatever he could fit in a med pre-paid postage box. He said he'd take care of me. Here's what I got.



That's about 7 pounds of pecan shells, and the total came to $17.11 with most of it shipping. Maybe not all that economical for you guys that are pros, but for us weekend warriors, this is a pretty good deal IMHO. I'm going to have to try it tonight on something.

EDIT: By the way, that's a 2 liter bottle, not a 20 ounce bottle. And the picture is a little deceptive. the shells go almost to the top of the bottle even though the picture doesn't look like it.

Ooops!!! Sorry, I made a mistake. It wasn't 7 pounds, it was 15 pounds for $7.50. Anyway, it's more than I'll use anytime soon. But I have some friends who might like a little.

Are you asking if they are peanut shells, or it's not worth it unless they are peanut shells? If your asking what kind of shells, they are pecan shells.

15 pounds for 7.50? DANG, that's a good deal. I might email them and see if they can hook me up.

That wasn't including shipping. The total was $17.11. But in an earlier post I said that was for 7 pounds not 15.
