I have a lot of fun cooking on my pellet grill and end up burning through a LOT of pellets. There are several companies that manufacture wood pellets but the most famous is probably Traeger.
Costco is currently selling a 33 pound bag of Traeger Gourmet Blend wood pellets and it is the best value I have ever seen for Traeger pellets.
Gourmet Blend Wood Pellets
The wood in the Gourmet Blend pellets is a mix of Cherry, Maple and Hickory. This is a really nice hardwood blend that works well with pork, chicken and beef.
To top things off, I have also been using the Traeger Chili Garlic dry rub that I got at Costco just to keep everything in the family! If you are buying the Traeger Fremont at Costco then go ahead and buy these pellets to fire it up!
The Gourmet Blend pellets are high quality.
There was minimal dust in the bag I bought which indicates that Costco is able to maintain a pretty good inventory turn with these pellets. If pellets sit around in the store too long then tend to slowly break up into smaller pieces, dust, etc.
I like Traeger products but, except for the items they sell at Costco, they are usually extremely overpriced. These pellets are a great example of Costco working with a brand to get some reasonable prices.
I bought the 33 pound bag of pellets for $19.99 which works out to a cost of $0.606 per pound.
Traeger sells another Maple/Cherry/Hardwood blend at Home Depot that they call their Signature pellets. I believe the Signature pellets and Gourmet pellets are the exact same product with different packaging.
The Traeger Signature pellets are sold at Home Depot in 20 pound bags for $18.95 which works out to a cost of $0.947 per pound.
This means that you will save $0.351 per pound (36%) when you buy your Traeger pellets at Costco.
