      Our pellets are different from the rest because we use the whole tree including the bark where the flavor is at. We personally oversee the entire production from ripping the trees from the orchards, grinding them down and producing the pellets in our own state of the art mill. We use no fillers or artificial woods and no vegetable oils in our pellets.

      Because we don’t use any oils or additives, our pellets don’t go rancid. However, we recommend keeping them in an airtight container to avoid moisture contact. We recommend a 5 gallon bucket with a seal tight lid!

      Did you clean your auger? Our pellets burn so hot that if too much dust is left in there it can cause a burn out? Did you check the diffuser plate to see if any of the fat got down below the fire pot? Some meats are fattier than others and drip a lot.

      This clinker is from the bark of the tree and the knots in the wood. The knots are where all the minerals collect, and bark is where the fugitive dust collects. When burned, the dust mixes with the minerals and crystallizes with the dust to form the clinker. Not a big deal, but rather the tradeoff for stick burner quality BBQ pellets. At Knotty Wood our goal is to make pellets that are stick burner quality. clinker

      Stick burners do not take the bark off because the bark is where the flavor is. 99 percent of pellet companies strip the bark to use as fuel to run the production mills. Knotty Wood built a custom mill that allows us to pelletize the whole tree, including the bark!
