No. You should never use heating pellets to cook food since they may contain softwood. Softwoods contain resins that produce a harsh tasting soot when burned, so they’re sure to leave a bad taste in your mouth!
Yes, We’ve created some alternative methods of using pellets for gas, charcoal and electric grills which are shared in our Grilling Tips and are printed on the back of each bag of Bear Mountain BBQ pellets. There are also a number of accessories on the market for using pellets to smoke on a gas, charcoal or electric grill.
Like everything in nature, product color is a result of a wide variety of factors ranging from seasonal temperatures during a tree’s growth cycle, to location and type of wood used in production. Even the same types of wood can have different varieties that vary in color (did you know there are over 600 species of oak?). Also - while infrequent - we occasionally change the exact mix of wood types based on availability to provide the consistent flavor and cooking performance you expect. Rest assured, our BBQ pellets are ALWAYS made with 100% hardwood and industry-leading quality standards, to create deliciously consistent BBQ, time and time again.
