Part 05 – Three Things To Think About When Buying BBQ Grilling Pellets by the Editors of Field & Stream 

The competition’s heating up. Who’s really the best griller in the neighborhood?

You’ve invested in a new pellet-fueled grill because it takes a lot of the guesswork out of consistently grilling the best ribs and brisket in the universe. Oh baby! But you know just how critical it is to choose the right pellets, because, after all that’s BOTH your heat and your flavor.
