What Grillers Are Saying

When we fired up the grill with these pellets, our mouths started watering almost immediately! Not just a smoky fragrance, but the smell of spices.

You can smell the basil, sage and thyme before even opening the bag. These pellets add a whole new dimension of flavor to our food we didn’t even know we needed!

We used these briquettes to slow cook a tri tip and oh my goodness did they give a great Smoky flavor! They burn slower and hotter, creating an aromatic and flavorful smoke. Can’t wait to use them for other meats!
