American Outdoors wood pellets are produced specifically for pellet grills and smokers. They are made entirely of compressed hardwood sawdust or woodchips. In comparison to many other grilling techniques, using wood pellets to cook your food gives it a true hardwood smoky flavor and allows you far more control over the cooking process. Additionally, our BBQ pellets are very effective. Compared to other types of barbeque fuel, BBQ pellets will produce heat that you can utilize at a rate of roughly 90% of the energy they contain.
