While pellet grills are designed specifically to run on BBQ pellets, and are, therefore, the best choice for grilling with pellets, you can still enjoy the great taste that wood pellets add to your meal if you are using a gas, charcoal, or electric grill. We recommend simply wrapping up a handful of pellets in tin foil or a tuna can and poking a few small holes. Put the tin foil or tuna can directly on the heat source of your grill and you will have great hardwood smoke filling your grill in a matter of minutes. (If you are using gas, put it on the flame source, if you are using charcoal, put it right on the briquettes).
Hardwood pellets are made from taking residual hardwood in the form of sawdust or chunks and compressing it into pellet form. The manufacturing of pellets is a natural process, meaning that the residual materials naturally bind together under pressure as pellets without the need for additives or glues of any kind.
The simple answer to this question is; Yes, you can run your pellet grill on normal wood pellets but, you shouldn’t. Normal fuel pellets are made from softwoods like Douglas Fir and Pine, whereas BBQ pellets are made from hardwoods such as Hickory, Mesquite, Apple, Cherry, etc. that have been used to cook food for centuries. Using these hardwood forms of pellets provide powerful smoke flavor and precision cooking temperatures that you just can’t get with softwood pellets, and isn’t that what pellet grilling is all about?
Yes, all high quality BBQ pellets are made from 100% hardwood. Avoid using any BBQ pellets made from anything other than pure premium hardwood.
