1. Traeger X Whistlepig Whiskey Barrel Pellets

Traeger Whiskey Barrel pellets are one of the premium pellets that offer a true whiskey flavor. They have been mixed with a hearty mix of 25% real American whisky, which gives a complex and deep flavor. These pellets also include an American oak and beechwood blend, which gives them a more nutty taste. Even though they are made from a blend of hardwoods, they still burn beautifully, giving out less smoke than many other woods due to their high burn temperature (1200 ).


2. Traeger Bold Blend Wood Pellets - Limited Edition

Traeger Bold Blend pellets are made with a mix of hardwood, including: hickory, apple, mesquite and oak. This mix provides a unique blend of flavors for the smoker. The burn temperature is high enough to provide an even heat distribution that allows you to use less wood than other pellets; therefore these burn more cleanly. During testing, Traeger Bold Blend pellets burned at a very hotter temperature than any other pellet in their class – even using more wood than Traeger Smokey Mountain Pellets (75%).


3. Traeger Brisket Blend Wood Pellets - Limited Edition

Traeger Brisket Blend pellets are made from a blend of hickory, apple and oak. These pellets are blended for better performance and taste, as well as a more consistent burn. These burn very hot, producing lots of smoke. The wood blend was developed to produce 2x the smoke volume relative to hickory and oak alone. With a very high burn temperature (1250 ), these pellets produce lots of smoke fast and consistently, which is ideal in slow or controlled smoking applications.


4. Traeger Signature Blend Wood Pellets

Traeger Signature Blend pellets are made from a blend of hardwood, including: hickory, apple, cherry and oak. These pellets produce the best flavor and burn cleanly at a high temperature (1250 ). This blend was developed by Traeger with the goal to deliver flavor that is milder than hickory, but bolder than apple or cherry. These can be burned in any type of smoker or grill.
