Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new favorite!! Didn't have what I looking for and decided to give these a try. Prefect flavor, the smoke was not overwhelming, brisket came out great! Can't wait to try these on other meats!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Wood Pellets on market These are my absolute favorite wood pellets. It is my go to blend even before using a pellet smoker. I would use Kingsford 100% hardwood charcoal with mesquite chunks and cherry wood chips in my Weber smoker prior to my Pit Boss pellet smoker. Now, Kingsford hits an absolute homerun with the Signature blend of mesquite, cherry, and oak. Love it! Only downside is I just have a bit of a hard time finding it at retailers. Walmart is the only place I've found it around me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total Disappointment Bought these at Lowe’s as they did not have the pellets I normally use in my Traeger. I was grilling up chicken that night and thought I would give these a try. I was unable to get above 300 degrees and they barely had smoke. As I was dumping them out to toss in the normal brand of pellet but another flavor I noticed why these don’t get hot in the hopper. They are half the size and were crumbling in my hands. Very disappointed as I thought they would be great since they were coming from Kingsford.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great smoke flavor I bought these to try them in my pellet grill. I was using another brand and wanted to try another flavor blend. The good, the smoke aroma that these pellets impart is a delight. I would say a great blend of woods. The bad, my grill struggled with temperatures above 350. Usually not able to maintain temp. I will use these in smoking, when grilling, some of my needs are 350 and 400 for that I will use other pellets where the compromise is the temp but less quality smoke.
