Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Hardwood Pellets Wow! these pellets pack a wonderful flavor to the foods cooked on the grill. I was very surprised that I could not only smell the bourbon scent but also tasted it on the food. I think my neighbors were enjoying the scent too. The pellets burn well. Can't wait to try other "flavors"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice flavor Decided to take advantage of a rarely warm day this winter and grilled some ribs with these new wood pellets. The flavor infused the ribs quite well. I didn't expect the flavors and aroma to come through that well but worked. Would try these again and other flavors as well.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DNF We have a Traeger and have been using Traeger pellets from the start. We tried these bourbon bbg ones and it was a big fail. We attempted to use them on smoking a brisket. A BRISKET. Am expensive cut of meat and the pellets smoked out the grill and the grill shut down several times and we had to finish in the oven. Was very disappointing. We are in MN and it is cold, but was not unreasonably cold that day. We removed the remnants and tossed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells and Tastes Great!! I used these pellets with my smoker. I am impressed how well they worked and the smoke flavor was not too strong. Kingsford has a long history of quality outdoor cooking products and again did not disappoint with these pellets.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kingsford Great I chose this product mainly because in my opinion Kingsford is king when it comes to outdoor cooking. There is no comparison hands down. My son-in-law bought a new grill/smoker so I asked him what he thought. His words; Still the best! The aroma that filled the air was enticing to say the least. The subtle flavor in the meat was perfection, and was not overwhelming. Great product and definitely worth a try and the money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kingsford pellets I have a small pellet smoker on my deck and love to find new recipes for it. This pellet blend is awesome for nearly any meat, as it has been curated to complement a wide range of proteins. I used it first to make ribs, and everyone raved about the flavor, so I smoked a chicken and it was so so amazing, I will definitely be doing more of those!! The pellets themselves are well formed and the bag didn't have much dust when I poured it into an airtight container. It is best to store in an airtight container to preserve the hardwood, easy burning quality. The quality of these pellets is are excellent with the same brand as my pellet grill, which is to say it is very high quality. I have only had the bourbon Barbeque blend, but I look forward to trying the other varieties. I highly recommend Kingsford wood pellets, the quality is terrific!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these! These pellets are pretty great. We decided to grill out and try these pellets. I swear it was the best tasting chicken. The pellets were easy to start and lasted for a while. While the pellets are small they give off a pretty good smelling scent also.
