ISO Wood Pellets for Smoking

beerandpork Sep 1, 2009 11:01 PM

I've got a cold-smoking setup that takes wood pellets rather than chips, and I'm running low. http://www.bbqrsdelight.com/ is the brand I've got, but I am planning on smoking some pastrami soon and I don't want to risk the shipment not arriving by the time the meat is ready. Anybody seen these or a similar product locally? Bonus points for being in SF proper, and even more bonus points for Muni/BART accessible.

    Ace Hardware on Grand Ave in Oakland (well, Piedmont actually) sells Traeger pellets. Not sure about BBQ'ers delight.

      Here's a place in Oregon, near Traeger, with options to ship pellets 2nd day or overnight. They also tout their customer service.

        Thanks for the tips, all. No luck at BBQ Galore. I'll try calling Bud's in the morning to see if he's got any suggestions but I'll probably just order online and hope.

          Why don't you call their 800 number and ask if the can send it out the same day? They are very cooperative.

          I have seen them at Cole Hardware in the Haight.

          Also, why don't you order directly from Traeger. They will ship quickly (UPS a couple of days) at reasonable prices and then muni and Bart don't figure into the equation.

            Well, no bonus points for me as this would require a car and drive. Bud's Custom Meats in Pengrove sells Traeger wood pellet grills. I assume they also sell the pellets ... or they might be able to give you a SF source if you call. (707) 795-8402

                I would guess that BBQ Galore would have them... not sure if there is an SF location though?
