If you’re making Labor Day camping plans or other adventures beyond your backyard, add Bear Mountain’s Smoke ‘Ems to your shopping list. Smoke ‘Ems come in a deceptively small packet that packs as big punch for your grilled meals. Each pack has a ton of flavor to amplify any meal, on any grill, anywhere. 

“This is the only product of its kind on the market right now,” says Nate Mangum, Bear Mountain VP of Cooking. “Grill master status is achievable on your camping grill, even if it’s the one that’s been sitting in the middle of your BLM site since the 80s. We’re that confident in our product.”

Smoke ‘Ems packets are simple and they’re great to use wherever your next adventure takes you. Says Mangum, “Folks love the convenience, simplicity, and real wood smoke flavors they provide. This product has revolutionized the grilling world when it comes to those using grills other than smokers and pellet grills.” 

Ideal for charcoal, gas or electric grills, each Smoke ‘Ems packet adds up to 45 minutes of natural hardwood smoke to a meal, creating irresistible flavors and aromas.

The variety of available blends gives many choices to create the perfect flavor for different grilled meats, fish, and veggies. Bear Mountain BBQ’s signature Craft Blends™ include Gourmet (works well with anything), Bold (best with things like brisket and pork), Savory (great for darker meats like turkey, duck, and lamb), and Sweet (perfect for light meats, fish, and veggies).

“These are just recommendations,” says Mangum of the Blends pairings. “We encourage everyone to experiment with any and all combinations, and we love to hear how our customers use our products, what worked well, and even combos that didn’t turn out quite as planned!”

Bear Mountain BBQ uses high quality natural hardwood to add rich, smoky flavor to food without using anything artificial. As with all of Bear Mountain’s pellets, Smoke ‘Ems are made from 100% premium all-natural hardwoods, with no flavorings, fillers, or additives. Even the packaging is 100% recyclable!
