Why Pellets are a better smoke flavor enhancer!
Pellets are a unique form of natural wood. When pellets are made, all of the air
within the cellular structure of the wood is evacuated, thus concentrating the wood into a very dense form, much denser than the natural tree. As compared to other wood flavor enhancers, pellets will yield a more intense smoke more quickly
which seals the food, locking in natural moisture and adding smoke flavor
exactly when it's needed.
Only 1/3 cup of pellets is needed for most cooking events. As compared to
other forms of smoking wood, you'll need 5-10 times the weight of wood to
achieve the same results as pellets. The cost per use is much less for
pellets than any other form of wood.
Since pellets have been processed from sawdust by pressure which generates
heat, any contaminants present in the wood are eliminated. This process
produces a smoking wood product of consistent quality. Pellets are easy to
use since you do not soak in water prior to use. It's easy to blend wood
flavors with pellets and easily repeat successful cooking results.
