How to Easily Add Smokey Flavor to Grilled Food -Bear Mountain BBQ Wood Pellets

If you have a gas grill the easiest way to add true smokey flavor to your food is to add a handful of wood pellets and let them work their magic. When the folks from Bear Mountain BBQ Wood Pellets asked if I'd like to write a review, the hardest part was trying to decide which flavor I wanted to try... I chose the Savory one, which added a nice traditional hardwood flavor:@) I have to say I was floored at how well the pellets worked, they created smoke very quickly! I plan to be adding some each time I BBQ going forward and yes, they do get my 'darn good' label.

I started by heating up my grill on high with the pellets in a pan right on top of the burner plates.

Then turned off the burners with the pellets, using more indirect heat for the pellets once the grill got hot.
I cooked a grill pan meal with the lid down trapping the smoke.

Since I was mostly curious to taste the smoky flavor, I only used olive oil and a little Montreal Steak Seasoning.
Pork tenderloin, peppers, onions and asparagus, this made one mighty fine meal:@)

Bear Mountain offers quite a few flavor choices, you can see more on their site HERE.
An added bonus, they are made from sawdust from wood mills, saving it from going to the landfills.

With an electric grill, charcoal grill and Hibachi, I'm using my pellets to add quick smokey flavor,
but of course there's a whole world of low and slow BBQ.
There are many fine pellet grills and pellet smokers on the market...
Maybe one day:@)

I'd like to thank the good folks at Bear Mountain for their generosity,
they provided the wood pellets, but all opinions are my own.

Let's fire up the grill, eat well, and have a happy day:@)


  1. I love grilling season and your dish looks so good. We've never used wood pellets to get a smoke flavor and it's a great idea.

  2. What a great product! We finally have a gas grill, but I know Bill misses the smoky flavor of charcoal. Will have to pick up some pellets!


Thank you for stopping by-enjoy your day!
