Through extensive testing, the team at Bear Mountain BBQ has dialed in the perfect combinations of hardwoods to create the best flavor for different types of grilled meats and vegetables. Stronger hardwoods add richness to steak, medium to mild wood species pair perfectly with chicken or pork, and lighter fruitwoods complement the delicious flavors of seafood.

The kiln-dried pellets are low moisture, so they create the perfect smoke for consistent, optimal flavor and an enjoyable grilling experience. The pellets burn clean with little ash, which reduces how often the ash cup needs to be cleaned.
