Weber Pellets Only?

I've had multiple cooks with B&B since they are the easiest for me to get (at the local grocery store) and have had no issues. Above in the thread, Kirkland (Costco) brand is mentioned to also work, though I haven't tried them. Next time I go, I'll grab a bag for the same reason you mention. To use for high heat work that burns through them.
I was one of the ones who mentioned the Kirkland pellets last month. I've used almost 60 pounds of them since I posted previously and have had zero issues, all for high heat cooking/searing. The pellets themselves vary widely in size, and some of them seem quite long. But it's never been a problem on the Searwood. An aside, I do dump the pellets between cooks so they don't sit outside in the humidity, etc.

At $13 for 40 lbs, it's a deal when you just want cheap heat.
 
I think the auger design and how if feeds is better on the Searwood and there won't be any issues with larger pellets.

Whereabouts are you finding $13 for 40lbs? (Have not seen this at my local Costco)

Well I'm new to pellets, so maybe it's not a full time price. But I've been to my local Costco twice since May and both times the Kirkland pellets were $12.95 for a 40 pound bag. Maybe it's just some sort of early season price.

I've been to 2 Costcos in the Twin Cities area of MN, both were ~$13 as well.
 
New here, but did pull the trigger on a Searwood 600XL. I've used Weber grills for a while now, so they were my go to when looking for a pellet grill. Though I skipped the Smokefire based on other reviews.

So, Weber, of course, recommends using their brand of pellets, but has anyone tries anything else in their pellet smokers? Any other actual user recommended pellets? I have a bag of B&B pellets that I plan to try, but should I expect any real trouble since it's not Weber? B&B claims no fillers used and the pellets look fine, but I'm curious as to what others are using.
I use Kirkland pellets from Costco. No problems.
 
Has anyone tried the Royal oak lump hardwood pellets in the smokefire.
 
For what it's worth.. I've done a couple rounds of thick ribeyes and used a 50/50 blend of Bear Mountain Hickory and Royal Oak all charcoal pellets on the Searwood. I was a little concerned initially because the Royal Oak charcoal pellets were significantly longer than any others I had used. After 3 cooks with them I have had no issues with the pellet feed and burning.

I've been using Bear Mountain Pellets with no issues yet (Knock on wood)......
 
Smokin Pecan Shell Pellets are a game changer if you are doing a low & slow cook. Best smoke producing pellets I have ever used. Been using Knotty Wood for smoking and Royal Oak Charcoal Pellets for grilling. So now I have three brands I chose depending on what I’m cooking
 
I have been using pellets from Knottywood, https://knottywoodbbq.com/, for 3 years now. The companies main business is removing orchards around the Woodland, CA area. There base pellets are Almond and Plum with variations on them. They have a bit of a subtle smoke flavor to them but they work very well for me. I especially like their Cabernetalmond blend where they get old oak wine barrels and use them in those pellets. They can be ordered from either Home Depot or Lowes and their is no shipping.
