Just wondering what everyone's choice of pellets are when smoking brisket?

Not an answer here as I've only used the competition blend for brisket...I did see on a YouTube video that they make charcoal pellets that I'm very interested in trying (if I could ever find them).

I haven't seen charcoal pellets, any idea who made them?

I use hickory for whole beef products. Then apple wood for the rest and charcoal too.

Has anyone tried the B&B Post Oak pellets? They provide an excellent smokey flavor.

I use the Pit Boss pellets as they are readily available. I have thought about trying the Lumberjack pellets but it would be a 45 minuet drive to get to a source to buy them.

I use 1 of 3, still deciding on the Fav. Pecan, Alder and Mesquite. I lean towards Alder as an all around Favorite. I don't care for the blends

I really like the charcoal pellets I think pit boss even makes them. I don't know we get them at WalMart and they have a good mix of charcoal and sawdust to have a very pleasing flavor.

Picked up these today. Haven't tried them yet because I started my cook at 4am today. Will try these out next weekend. They have them with the Pit Boss pellets.

I tried the lumber jack last night and they are very good, but the only issue I had there was a lot of dust.

Got a bag of Bear Mountain Gourmet pellets that were really good for my B-Day. Good solid pellets and very little dust. I thought they would be abused on delivery from Amazon but they were great.

Haven't decided what I want to do this weekend with the Bourbon pellets. I also noticed Cuiseart makes a cherry rum pellet. Sound interesting but I chose the Maple Bourbon. The Cuiseart bags are $14.97 for a 20 pound bag whereas Pit Boss pellets are $8.88 for a 20 pound bag. So i wanted to try out one bag first before spending a ton on pellets. Ace Hardware has a Traeger Whiskey pellet that they sell but it is $20 a bag. You really can't beat Competition Blend for $15 tho at Walmart. 40 pound bag is a good deal.
