Wood Pellets, a great way to enhance meat flavor!

Wood Pellets are made from natural wood by evacuating all of the air within the cellular structure of the wood. This allows the wood to be compacted into a very dense form. Pellets yield intense smoke quickly which in-turn helps seal the meat, lock in the moisture and add flavor.

It is cheaper to use wood pellets since you normally only need 1/3 of a cup of pellets for most cooking events. The cost per use (10 uses per 1 lb. bag) will leave less of a hole in your pocket than that of wood chips.

The pellets come from sawdust that has been shaped by applying high heat and pressure any contaminants present in the wood are eliminated. This process produces a smoking wood product of consistent quality. Each flavor is produced from the wood species it is named after. Jack Daniel’s® Smoking Pellets in made using mellowing charcoal from the distillery which is pulverized and blended with sawdust and is then transformed into a palletized form.

Using pellets is much easier since you do not soak them in water before use like you do when using wood chips. They also offer more versatility by allowing you the option of blending more than one flavor together to achieve a personalized flavor.
To use the pellets, simply place 1/3 of a cup of pellets in the smoker box (lining the box in foil reduces cleanup time) and place the box on the grill right above the flame. When the smoke starts coming out, place your food on the cooking grate and close the cover of your grill. Smoke normally last up to 30 minutes depending on the temperature of your grill.
