Bear Mountain BBQ Pellets

If you love to grill and smoke meats and veggies, you’ll love the different flavors of all-natural hardwood barbecue pellets from Bear Mountain. Available in 20# bags at the Snohomish and Monroe Co-Op, each bag will provide up to 20 hours of cook time in your pellet grill and smoker. Bear Mountain barbecue pellets have a low moisture content for the perfect smoke, and work well with any brand of grill and smoker like Traeger, Pit Boss, Weber, Louisiana Grills, and more.

One of the reasons that barbecued meats and veggies are so delicious is because of the type of wood used during preparation. Different types of wood have unique properties and flavors that are passed on during the grilling and smoking process. There are many different kinds of woods that can be used for barbecue. Bear Mountain Barbecue Pellets are made of choice hardwoods, free from fillers or binders. Add rich, smoky flavor with Bear Mountain’s all-natural wood barbecue pellets.

Visit the Snohomish and Monroe Co-Op today to explore the variety of flavors available like Oak, Apple, Hickory, Cherry, Mesquite, and Gourmet Blend.

Hickory wood pellets provide an intense, well rounded smoky and spicy flavor to meat. Best used to cook beef, pork and poultry, hickory brings a robust smokiness. If you’re looking to try out a wood that provides a stronger flavory, hickory wood is a great choice.

Try apple wood pellets to add a sweet, subtle smokiness. Never heavy, use apple wood pellets to beautifully flavor ham, fish, poultry, and veggies. Because of the subtleness of apple wood’s smoke, it’s best to cook your meats “low and slow” to attain full flavor.

Not as intense as hickory, oak is a favorite for grilling and smoking. Oak pellets provide a balance of smooth, smoky flavor that blends well with all kinds of meats. With a medium, earthy flavor, use oak pellets alone or try combining with apple or cherry.

All-natural Cherry wood pellets add a sweet, fruity flavor to meats and veggies. If you’re unsure about which wood to choose, start with cherry. Cherry goes well with any kind of meat. Delicate, and not overpowering cherry wood also works well mixed with other woods like apple, oak, or hickory. Cherry wood produces a lovely, dark mahogany color on meats, making them look even more delicious.

Mesquite is a hardy wood, known for its strong, intense, earthy flavor. It works well for quick cooks like steak, or for smoking beef and pork to create a Texas-style barbecue flavor. Mesquite pellets also work well blended with milder flavors like apple or cherry. Mesquite is a great choice for the adventurous outdoor chef.

You can also try Bear Mountain’s Gourmet Barbecue Blend: their combination of all-natural Oak, Hickory, Maple, and Cherry will create a great flavor you’re sure to love.

Smoking meats with Bear Mountain Barbecue Pellets isn’t just about adding flavor. Smoking meats is also about adding a dark, rich mahogany hue. Hickory, oak, and cherry woods are especially popular because of their tendency to add appealing color. Just like blending spices, try different blends of woods from Bear Mountain Barbecue pellets in your grill and smoker to produce delicious and beautiful results on your meats and veggies.
