SMOKE 'EMS Flavor Chart

Ideal for charcoal, gas, or electric grills, Smoke ‘Ems add up to 45 minutes of all-natural hardwood smoke flavor to your food, whether you’re grilling in your backyard, at the park, in a parking lot, or on a camping trip. 

“There’s nothing quite like this product on the market right now,” says Ben Madden, Bear Mountain BBQ Product Manager.

“Smoke ‘Ems are small but mighty, and they’re great for life on the go. Consumers love the convenience, simplicity and real wood smoke flavors they provide.”

Made from 100% premium all-natural hardwoods, Smoke ‘Ems come in four different blends. Each provides a unique flavor profile that will inspire delicious meals.

  • Gourmet BBQ Blend: This blend can handle the heat, no matter the eats. Bear Mountain’s most versatile hardwood blend, it’s the “Go-To” that works well on just about any type of food. 
  • Bold BBQ Blend: This blend brings BIG flavor for the boldest of eats. Smoky, earthy and rich, this robust hardwood blend is crafted for a bold smoke profile with a bite. It’s a favorite for brisket, pork shoulder and beer can chicken. 
  • Savory BBQ Blend: This blend brings out the rich, natural flavor of food. It adds a smooth smoke flavor for darker meats like turkey, duck, lamb and beef, as well as for baking bread, side dishes and desserts.
  • Sweet BBQ Blend: Who says barbecue can’t have a sweet side? Bear Mountain’s Sweet BBQ Blend brings out the finger-lickin’ sweetness of favorite grilling dishes. This blend adds a gentle smoke flavor and aroma to lighter meats such as poultry and pork, as well as fish and veggies.

As with all of Bear Mountain’s pellets, Smoke ‘Ems are made from 100% premium all-natural hardwoods, with no flavorings, fillers, or additives.

“Folks really enjoy experimenting with Smoke ‘Ems,” says Madden. “Each blend has a unique smoke flavor profile to inspire grillers to create delicious meats and veggies and share with their friends and family on game day and any other day.”
