Specially made for wild game, Pit Boss Trophy Blend Hardwood Pellets were made to give your meat a subtle yet savory smoke flavor without overwhelming it. Enjoy the mouthwatering aroma of the white oak, red oak, and hickory hardwoods. Pit Boss hardwood pellets are made from 100% all-natural hardwood that is dried and ground into saw dust. The dust is then pressurized at extreme heat to create compact pellets that are coated and held together with the wood’s natural lignin. Hardwood Pellets are also known as the easiest fuel to use. They produce less than 1% of ash, so an entire 40 lb. bag of pellets will only turn into ½ cup of ash, which makes clean up a breeze. They also produce immense flavor without needing to think about babysitting the air to fuel ratio like with wood chips or chunks.
