Can you mix different Traeger pellets?

How do wood pellets get their flavor?

They also don’t contain softwoods, like pine or spruce, that have a high amount of sap that can adversely affect the taste of your meat. Most wood pellets are made up of mainly oak, a very stable burning wood. This is then blended with another hardwood or fruitwood to impart the flavor through the smoke.

What are the best wood pellets for flavor?

By far, the two most popular pellet flavors are hickory and apple. Both are classic BBQ woods, and between the two you can cook just about anything. Hickory produces a moderate smoke that’s strong enough to stand up to the bold flavor of beef, but isn’t so strong that it overpowers pork or poultry.

How do I get more smoke flavor from my Traeger?

The Traeger Timberline and Ironwood series have a Super Smoke mode that ramps up smoke when cooking between 165°F – 225°F. This is a great way to get more smoke flavor when cooking at lower temps. The smoker will automatically start producing more smoke at these temps and hold it until you reach the desired temp.

Do wood pellets have additives?
