Pellets for your pellet grill

I am very happy to be a member of this forum. My wife and I cook more outside than we do inside. Over our 20 year marriage we have literally burned 10-12 grills completely out. This last time we decided that it was time for us to spend some money and get a sho nuff bad boy grill. After researching and reviewing, we ended up with a Camp Chef Woodwind.

Having said that, I have a question. I did try the search box to see if it had been covered, but I didn't see anything.

Have you guys found an economical hard wood pellet brand that is equal in quality of the Camp Chef, Treager brands pellets?

I have a 25 year old Weber gas grill that works as well today as it did brand new.
I have replaced the flavorizer bars three times. (This last time I bought stainless).
I have replaced the grates twice using stainless this last time.


The burners are like new (stainless) and the grill body is aluminum.
Even the igniter still works on the first push. Original.


I hear these pellet grills are amazing. But my question is "how do you grill with pellets"?
BBQ'ing and smoking I get. Its the grilling.

As far as pellets I know nothing about them...

To be honest, I buy mine at Walmart most of the time - as most of them do the same thing. But when I want to go fancy, I use Lumberjack (their 100% cherry is absolutely awesome!) and I haven't had any bad bags from them.
Try mixes, and try different options as grilling is all about finding what works best for you

And why not, Roll_Bones?
For instance, we have a combo (grill/smoker) from Trager - Lil Tex Elite 34 - which use pellets as a fuel for both of these functions. I realise, that it's all about one's preference, but my boyfriend and I pretty happy with our results. Sorry if I got you wrong, though don't underestimate the power of grilling with pellets. Peace!

I prefer my BGE for most of my smoking. I use chunks of wood mixed in with the charcoal. If I have large quantities of meat and/or homemade sausages to smoke I use my off set pit. Charcoal to start and then splits of wood for smoking, usually pecan. Weber 22.5 for grilling, although the Egg is my go to for reverse searing. That is enough equipment, with accessories, to do just about any outdoor cooking job. I am looking at a Pit Barrel Cooker though.
