Are you looking to BBQ in a healthier way? Do you want to do so while also enjoying great BBQ flavor? Here at Knotty Wood, we don’t believe that you should have to choose between “healthy” and “delicious.” Pellet-smoked food, for the most part, tends to be lower in fat while higher in nutrients, too. To add great flavor to anything you smoke, we offer our pellets, the best almond wood for cooking. There are many benefits to smoking with a pellet grill.
Why Smoking is a Healthier Grilling Option
For one, so many kinds of foods can be smoked. Sure, you can smoke meats, but you can also smoke salmon, veggies, and so much more. Even if you do smoke some meats with fat on them, the odds are good those meats aren’t going to have so much fat on them by the end, as the fat can drip out during the smoking process. Additionally, when you’re smoking something, it won’t have those oils, sauces, and other potentially-not-healthy toppings. Smoking’s one of the healthiest ways to cook.
Flavor that Lasts
When it comes to healthy eating, portion control can help quite a bit. Smoking has been, in the past, a cooking method that made it easier to preserve foods, so that they would have a longer shelf life than meats that were cooked in other ways. Thus, you can refrigerate smoked meats for longer, thus eliminating any potential feeling of “oh, we have to eat the entire thing today.” Instead of eating all of the meat in one day, you have it for lunch tomorrow, a bit for dinner when you come home, and so forth.
The Taste of Almond Wood for Cooking
The health benefits mentioned above wouldn’t be worth it if pellet cooking were anything less than perhaps the best way to get the most flavor out of your meats, veggies, and more. Each of our almond pellets is rich with a flavor that’s a bit sweet, nutty, and mild. So, it goes with just about anything while adding a taste that always adds to your grilling experience. In addition to going with anything that you cook, they can also be used in any way that you cook. Should you want high heat for a sear, they can provide that. They can also help with low, slow cooking as well.
A Healthier Pellet
If you are looking for a healthier way to enjoy your favorites, these pellets can help with that as well. See, we designed our pellets to be 100% pure and natural. Other wood pellet companies don’t make their pellets entirely out of “wood” – they include flooring scraps or, in some cases, actual furniture remnants. Knotty Wood pellets never have any additives, wood substitutes, or fillers. You can order our pellets through our site, at your local retailer, or even have them dropped off right on your doorstep, too.
