9 Tips For B Buying Traeger Pellets Bulk

Traeger pellets bulk

A pellet grill needs a steady supply of pellets to keep running.

The very last thing that you want when grilling or smoking meat is to have your fire go out from a shortage of pellet fuel to keep the grill running.

Clearly, having a good supply on hand before you start is key.

Traeger pellets can be found in many different stores where grilling supplies are available, both in actual retail locations, and online.

Traeger pellets tend to be sold in individual bags, ranging from 18 to 33 pounds, although some combination offers are available from retailers.


Where to buy traeger pellets in bulk

All of the Traeger products, including pellets, can be purchased directly from the Traeger website, (traeger.com) as well as from a variety of companies, both in physical retail stores and on line.


Traeger pellets at Costco

According to the Costco website (costco.com), as of this writing (April 2022), Traeger gourmet blend wood pellets were available in 33 lb bags, along with Bear Mountain 40 lb. pellet bags, and something called the Bear Mountain variety pack.


Traeger pellets at Ace Hardware
