E. What does it mean "Hickory Flavored"?

All our flavored BBQ pellets are formulated to provide a mixture of 40% of the flavor wood (Hickory, Pecan, Apple, Mesquite, etc.) and 60% Red Oak base. There 3 reasons for this.

  1. Many species of trees produce too strong a taste for many of our customers (for example, Mesquite).
  2. All wood burns at various heat output levels. Rather than have to adjust the grill for each species the user wants a consistent heat output pellet.
  3. Some woods are very expensive (for example, Mesquite and Pecan). If used in a 100% pellet, the price can be approximately double, putting it out of the range of many customers. We do still make the pricier 100% species BBQ pellets for those that want to blend their own formulas.
