I’ve used my Traeger Timberline 850 a ton since last April and one of the things that I’m always asked is whether we need to use Traeger pellets with it. The simple answer is no, but I would turn that around and ask why would you bother using another pellet brand? Traeger’s pellets are readily accessible (we offer them here at Curto’s year round), they are reasonably priced compared to more boutique brands, and the Timberline (and other Traeger grills) have been created to handle Traeger’s larger pellets.
Then there is the subject of product quality and trust. Traeger is one of the few pellet smoker manufacturers who not only create their own pellets, but they do it in-house in the USA. There is no fear of getting pellets that have chemical residue on them as Traeger only uses 100% natural hardwood – so that means no fillers or additives.
Traeger has always taken great measures to ensure that the pellet quality is also there not only from a food stand point, but also in the way that they perform. In order to get the holy grail of blue smoke, your wood needs the correct moisture ratio which Traeger’s pellets offer.
Traeger is so confident in their pellets that they have produced a web page devoted to Traeger pellets that will give you all the information that you need to make an educated decision as to whether they are the right choice for your smoker. Check it out and let us know if you have any questions.
