I was told via email by pit boss that their mesquite pellets were 60/40 oak or alder/mesquite blend.I like Pit boss Comps and their fruitwood and I like Traeger Pecan. Pitt boss gets a bad wrap since they are sold at Walmart and Lowes but if you actually research them they are do not use anything but hardwood and they do not use alder or oak as filler and no oils, etc.
I have never used that blend. I am from Texas and Mesquite is super strong but we use it a lot. I wonder if they blended that one to take away some of the power of the Mesquite away for the mass users? Surely 100% Mesquite would be pretty potent I would think in pellet form?I was told via email by pit boss that their mesquite pellets were 60/40 oak or alder/mesquite blend.
YUMMY!!!! Please let us know how it turned out! Where at in South Texas? I was born in El Paso, Raised in San Antonio and lived a few years in "The Valley" Harlingen to be exact.I'll let you know about the blend soon... I just finished a 15-hour cook on a brisket using the Pit Boss mesquite blend pellets. Grew up in South Texas myself. Mesquite is king. I agree that just mesquite would be too strong though. Took about 10 hours to get the bark where I wanted. Wrapped it in butcher paper for the rest of the cook. This was not done on a SmokeFire.
So brisket turned pretty good using the pit boss mesquite blend pellets. Nice bark and smoke ring. I think I left it on a little too long, though, so it was a little dry.YUMMY!!!!
