    I never had a problem with Pit Boss pellets. The only thing is they leave a lot of ash. I've been using Bear Mountain and Trager pellets.Just my two cents. LOL

    Wow, surprised to hear all the negative comments on these. I'm a newbie, so grains of salt here. My first smoker is a Pit Boss vertical pellet rig, so I've been using their pellets, seemed logical. Haven't had any issues, almost no sawdust in the bags, they burn very clean (surprisingly little ash even after hours of cooking), and every meal I've made has tasted amazing. I've used their Competition Blend and Hickory Blend thus far. Definitely ain't broke here on my end.

    The only issue I had was the bottom 25% of the bag was pure saw dust. Just don’t pout that in the auger.

    A friend using a Daniel Boone GMG consistently warns me off using Pit Boss pellets. He's had nothing but problems. It's anecdotal, but he is that firm about it, that it has scared me off using them.

    I like them for their price, but they are quite dusty. Of course I've bought them from Wallyworld online, so the shipping surely has something to do with the amount of dust. And as a warning, lots of dust + humid weather and not running your auger dry = auger jams. The dust and pellets swell up. Jams are a huge headache.

    Pit Boss is all I've been burning for the last couple years. I think that's all the local wolly world keeps in stock.

    I generally prefer to try to buy the pellet manufacturer brands themselves versus grill manufacturer rebranded pellets. It probably doesn’t matter that much, but feel there’s more transparency. Plus if it’s anything like a lot of store branded products, the better quality raw materials end up in their brands versus other brands they make.

    If pricing is your main concern, are LumberJack pellets available locally for you? Their pricing is usually great. If you have friends that use pellet grills too, you could setup a group buy and order a pallet and divide it up and save even more.

    That being said, I did burn probably 400-500 lbs of the Weber pellets because the SmokeFire was picky about pellets.

    A few months ago someone posted a link about Bear Mountain doing a buy one get 1/2 off sale on their website. I ordered four bags then and I’ve noticed that they seem to run the sale more often than not and I ordered four more bags and I have been using those exclusively for a couple of months now. I think I can get around four bags that weigh 20 pounds each for under $50 and I really like them. I also tried the gorilla pellets but they are somewhat more expensive and you have to buy at least three bags to get free shipping. I did like them though. I recently picked up a bag of Traeger cherry pellets for $13 at Costco but haven’t tried them yet. I have used only Traeger pellets at our lake house on the Traeger and we have all been pleased by them. I know Jeremy Yoder is not a fan though but that’s the only brand I’ve seen up there in the stores, though I haven’t looked too hard.

    Pit Boss pellets are solid in my SilverBac. No jams and they are the only ones I can get locally, are inexpensive, and taste great. The Pit Boss comp. pellets have a tangy after taste on the SilverBac. People say it is because the alder wood, I don't know, and I think it can complement ginger and curry rubs better.

    I am currently experimenting with the Grilla Grills pellets and I do like them a little better, but I have to order them online and there twice as expensive. The smoke taste "seems cleaner" than Pit Boss, and my wife thinks they last a little longer (in the hopper than Pit Boss), but for us that is subjective.

    Smokin' Pellets are next, I assume they will be very similar to the Grilla Grills pellets. I'll keep you updated if the are not.

    I did not have a problem with them, but now I buy B&B competition pellets from Academy. Roughly the same price.

    They aren't my favorite, but they work. Depends on your grill.

    I bought two bags to give them a shot and doubt I’ll buy them again. I can hear the auger straining to move them at times, all kinds of weird noises.
