Pellets for Cold Smoker

Recommended Posts

Was thinking about buying some pellets for my cold smoker. Not being a pellet-head, I have no idea what brands are good or where to get small quantities of pellets at a reasonable price. Any suggestions?

Ordered the cookin pellets sample pack, so will find out soon. Decent price at $16.50 for 9 lbs of pellets and free shipping.

Anyone used these? They're much cheaper for smaller quantities than the others. Supposedly higher quality (per folks at Amazing Ribs) too.

How did you get on with these pellets @Pequod?  I have found them on amazon.co.uk and they are indeed much cheaper than the A-maze-n pellets which I have also been able to find here.  Any advice gratefully received as I prepare to use my new hot/cold smoker.

I think there is a dealer within 50 miles of me, so I'll try and get some of these pellets. Thanks for the info. :)

Have heard Lumberjack is great stuff. Do they sell it in smaller packs? Don’t particularly need a 20 lb sack of pellets for the cold smoker.

My local dealer only had the 20# bags. It's not that much volume-wise, as the pellets are very dense. Per their website, it only comes in 20# and 40# bags.

Thanks for all the tips.  Working my may through the options here in the UK. 

Lumberjack - 3 No 20 lb bags at £39.69 seems to be best value.  This source only has beech and pecan. https://shop.americanbbq.co.uk/bbq-pellets-26-c.asp

A-maze-n - lots of variety and bags sized from 2 lb at £6.95 or 5 lb at £11.95 - £13.95 https://www.bbqgourmet.co.uk/smoking--wood-pellets-99-c.asp

Traeger - 1 No 20 lb bag at £17.99 and lots of variety - apple, cherry, hickory, maple etc  https://abell.co.uk/search?q=traeger+pellets&Search=

Seem to be spoilt for choice here.  From what you guys have said and what I have been able to read, Lumberjack seems like a good option even though the variety is limited.

Reach out to the store and ask if they can get in some of the other woods, in particular some of the fruit woods. They might be able to order you some.

The cold smoker is one item I didn’t add to the list but may have to order.
