Traeger Premium Hardwood Pellets (Gourmet Blend - 33 lb)

[Scroll down to view product info]

If you have a Traeger grill, then you absolutely need some Traeger wood pellets to fire it up. How else are you going to cook some ribs, sear some steaks, or smoke a brisket? Traeger offers different flavors of these wood pellets like apple, mesquite, etc., but why limit yourself to one particular flavor when you can just get a 33 lb bag of the Gourmet Blend Traeger Premium Hardwood Pellets which gives you a mixture of maple, cherry, and hickory. You get the deep, distinct bbq flavor of hickory and the sweet flavors of maple and cherry at the same time. When you use these wood pellets for your grill, your food will get a nice, smokey flavor that you won't get from a gas grill. You can use these fuel pellets for any of your Traeger grills like the Traeger Junior, Century, Select Elite grills. Keep in mind that the thing with owning a Traeger grill is that you have to use Traeger wood pellets (versus wood chips or wood chunks), but you don't necessarily need a Traeger to use these pellets. You can still utilize these pellets as an additional source of smoke your non-Traeger grill or smoker (I actually use them to cold smoke cheese and almonds). So be sure to take advantage of this 33 pound bag of the Gourmet Blend of Traeger wood pellets at Costco. It'll definitely last you a long time, and you'll be fully stocked for grilling season!

Just picked up 2 bags of this today! Will probably buy another 5 or so, depending on how the flavor profile works out. Looks like it will be pretty good for all things pork....which is about my favorite thing to smoke!

According to the Traeger Rep at the store, ALL Costco stores will be carrying this permanently (not sure about over Winter months in the north). I verified at 2 stores this weekend that they have them.

Very excited.

Hi @AFM, ya I really do hope that Costco will start carrying the Traeger Premium Hardwood Pellets all year round. It sure beats having to wait a whole year just to find fuel just to fire up your Traeger smoker/grill. I hope you make good use of these wood pellets and make some good ribs or pork shoulder with them. Good luck!

Even Costcos here in Canada carry them almost year round. They are back again now in February and usually dissappear ear around September when the Halloween stuff appears.

For the flavour, I really like the blend and for the price it can't be beat. Works on chicken and pork amazingly. Haven't tried beef yet.

Hello @Unknown, ya I actually remember the days when Costco didn't sell Traeger pellets even though they sold the Traeger grills. I have a regular charcoal grill/smoker at home and usually use hickory chunks or chips whenever I smoke meat. My sister though does have a Traeger grill. I got a bag full of Traeger pellets (it was the mix blend) from her and bought a pellet tube smoker that I filled up and lit on one end to produce smoke in my charcoal grill (but you can use it in any grill - gas, charcoal, etc). I must say that the Traeger pellets did a fine job when I cold smoked some cheese and almonds. I cold smoked the cheese for 4 hours and that was enough to impart plenty of good smoke flavor. I'll also use the pellets as an additional source of smoke when I do brisket, pork butt, or ribs in the future.

Awful pellets. To much maple. Repulsive

Thank you @Unknown for your feedback in regards to the Traeger Gourmet Blend Wood Pellets. I've only used this blend of pellets when cold smoking cheese, but never for smoking meat. I never noticed the maple flavor overpowering the cheese, but I'm sure it's a bit too much for some people especially considering that 50% of it is made up of maple. Hickory is actually my favorite wood to use when it comes to smoking anything.

Not much flavor when I smoked some ribs. And actually kind of expensive for a 33 pound bag. The standard size is 40.

Hello @Anonymous, I had plenty of smoke flavor when I used the Traeger wood pellets when I cold smoked some cheese. Do you use brown sugar on your spareribs? Although I tend to use wood chunks or chips whenever I would smoke meat, I did notice that the smoke flavor isn't as apparent when I smoke pork spareribs though regardless of whether I use wood chunks, chips, or pellets. I think it's because I use brown sugar on my dry rub and the sweetness helps mask the smoke flavor on the spareribs, whereas my dry rubs for pork shoulder and beef short ribs don't have any sugar. That's been my experience.
