My local Ace Hardware has stocked up on Weber wood pellets and carries the following flavors:. – Apple – Cherry – Hickory – Grillmaster Blend – Mesquite

Do Weber Pellets Have Any Fillers?

Are Weber Pellets Any Good?

I loaded the pellets into the Spider Grill pellet adapter that I had hooked up to an old 22 inch Weber kettle.  The Spider ran smoothly with the Weber pellets and was able to easily hold temperatures as low as 180F and as high as 500F.

I did quite a few cooks with these pellets but my favorite was a simple batch of chicken wings.  The wings got smoked at 180F for one hour and then grilled at 450F for 30 minutes.

Do You Have to Use Weber Pellets in a Weber Smokefire Pellet Grill?

Can You Use Weber Pellets in a Traeger or Pit Boss?

You can absolutely use Weber pellets in a Traeger, Pit Boss or any other brand of pellet grill. Trager states on their warranty information that Traeger grills run best with Traeger pellets but that does not mean that you have to use their pellets.
