Directions for Pellets: Smoking wood pellets make cooking all kinds of fish, meats, grilled vegetables and BBQ smoking easier and are 100% fruit and nut firewood ground down and then highly compressed. Smoking wood pellets often burn longer than smoking wood chips. For directions you only need to use 1/3 cup and soak them in water for 15 minutes (some chefs even soak them in fruit juices.) Place them in a smoker box tray or wrap them in aluminum foil and poke holes to let the sweet smoke escape. We offer the best pellets in combinations for all types of cooking!
