Choosing The Right Pellets For Your Meal

Holding an amount of pellets

The great thing about a wood pellet grill is the option to mix and match your wood pellets, creating a different aroma and flavor profile.

The best way to choose the right pellets is to take a look at what meat you’re going to grill [1].

“Resting meat allows everything to relax and redistribute the juices, which creates a more tender, juicier cut,"

 

- Angie Mar, Chef

The subtle flavors and aromas can be all you need to make a good meal great. Take a look at our wood pellet flavor guide to make your next meal the best one yet:

Chicken Beef Lamb Pork Turkey Fish Vegetables
Apple X X X X X
Alder X X X X X X X
Cherry X X X X
Garlic X X X X X
Hickory X X X X X
Maple X X
Mesquite X X X
Onion X X X X X
Pecan X X X X
Tennessee Whiskey X X X X X

When cooking pork, you’ll want to go with a more savory flavor such as mesquite or hickory. This is much better for a slow and low grilling session.

Wood flavors such as maple and pecan will have your beef tasting sweet while balancing out that bold flavor the beef originally produces.

Cherry, apple, and alder will create a sweet flavor profile, whereas pecan will give you a much nuttier taste. When cooking up white meats, your choices are endless.
