This is the first time I've heard of any of those terms. I would like to know as well.

They are expensive pellets lol. As far as home or industrial....is there such a thing? Trial different brands and see what you like. They will differ in burn rate, flavour and amount of ash they leave behind. I like the BBQ delight pellets. I have Traeger pellets on hand as well. Traeger will threaten you that if you don't use "Traeger pellets" it will good your warranty but then again they manufacturer pellets........

I am asking because I have a friend who manufactures coffee wood pellets and want to import them to the states. I told him about traeger and he wants to know what kind of pellets they used.
Thought someone here would know.

I guess I will have to ask directly.

Cheers

My local Runnings store (where I buy lumberjack pellets) sells wood pellets as well. I'm assuming these are for a pellet stove (for heat) So maybe that is what he is referring to.

Where as the pellets we use are for flavor and smoke, but burning them also provides heat of course. The smoke off of some of these heating pellets would not make the best taste I can imagine.

Ask me about the crap that was pre-loaded in our smoke tube! OMG, I cannot rant enough about that crap!!

What I have been told was the the pellets used for heating stoves can have fillers, glues, or other materials, that you may not want cooking your food. "Food grade pellets," should not have any of the stray materials and are to be 100 percent hard wood.
