Cook With 100% Natural, Flavored Wood Pellets

Because our wood pellets are considered “food-grade” we take the utmost care in the process to turn natural wood into dense flavor-packed heat machines. The wood meeting our high standards would have otherwise been shipped off to landfills or burned, so using it as a grill fuel source is actually very environmentally friendly. The wood is then turned into sawdust and pressurized. The pressure used to make the pellets is so immense, heat is generated, binding the wood together in a tighter, more concentrated form than in the original wood.

Unlike wood pellets used for heating stoves, cooking pellets use a blend of high-quality hardwoods that are safe for cooking. Though not all pellet brands do this, Memphis Grills’ BBQ Pellets make sure the wood being used to make the pellets is coming from a trustworthy source. You would never want to cook your food using wood pellets that have been treated with binders or oils, or loaded with fake flavor. By knowing the apple wood pellets you’re using were made from apple tree branches harvested from an orchard in Michigan (or similar) you know you’re getting what you paid for: quality.
