[Homeroast] OT: 4th of July drool

Different Mike here, but I also have used pellets for many years, first in a 
Traeger and now in a FEC-100 by Cookshack.  I buy my cooking fuel pellets 
from BBQr's Delight.  They have an online website at 
http://bbqrsdelight.com/   They make theirs with 1/3 flavor wood and 2/3 
oak.  Traeger uses 10% flavor wood and 90% oak in their pellets from their 
southern plant or 90% alder from their west coast plant.  Shipping is high 
on small orders, but if you buy 400 lb. or more, BBQr's Delight discounts 
the price and ships by truck which is much less than UPS.  I find their 
pellets to be well made, with little dust and they provide a good flavor. 
Another trick to get more smoke flavor is to put a foil pack of pellets 
(preferably pure flavor wood, also available from BBQ-D) on top of the heat 
deflector plate when cooking.  This adds more smoke flavor.

Now there's a USEFUL tidbit!

Mike you've been using a pellet grill a lot longer than I have...
I know you like to use the various flavor wood pellets.
I used to cook on on an offset firebox type smoker using an all wood fire,
and I know whatever wood I used played a big part in the flavor.
So far, I've been disappointed that the Traeger pellets I've used have all
been very similar to each other, nearly indistinguishable in fact.
Have you tried other brands? Which do you like?

Some days...
It's just not worth chewing through the leather straps
