Best Value Liquor Pellet Blends Per Lb

Hi, I’m Chris. I started back in 2007.

I have my main article on the best value pellets for smoking/grilling. This article is to specifically cover the best-value liquor blend pellets currently on the market. These are BBQ pellets made from reclaimed Oak liquor barrels. This is obviously only a small niche of BBQ pellets. This article doesn’t cover other pellet flavors. If you are looking for those, check out my AppleCherryHickory, MesquiteMapleOakPecan or Custom Blend articles. Enjoy 🙂

Pit Boss Liquor Pellets – 50 Cents to 75 Cents Per Lb

Currently, there is just one liquor pellet blend offered by Pit Boss:

  • Whiskey Barrel Blend: Reclaimed Oak Whiskey barrels
Pit Boss Liquor Pellets

I can currently only find these Pit Boss Whisket Barrel pellets available for sale directly from Pit Boss ($20) or from Amazon ($30) in 40 lb bags.

Therefore, the price per lb for these pellets ranges from 50 Cents to 75 Cents.

Bear Mountain Liquor Pellets – 70 Cents to $1.20 Per Lb

Bear Mountain currently sell one liquor pellet blend:

  • Bourbon BBQ: Reclaimed Bourbon barrels
Bear Mountain Liquor Pellets

Currently, its not that easy to find these Bear Moutain Bourbon BBQ pellets online. I can only find them in 20 lb bags at Amazon ($24), Lowes ($14) and Costco ($24).

Hence, Lowes is easily the best place to buy them currently. The price per lb varies from different outlets between 70 Cents to $1.20.

Louisiana Grills Liquor Pellets – 75 Cents to $1 Per Lb

Currently, Louisiana Grills just have one liquor pellet blend:

  • Tennessee Whiskey Barrel: Reclaimed Oak liquor barrels
Louisiana Grills Liquor Pellets

I’ve only been able to find two places you can buy these liquor pellets in 40 lb bags, either directly from Louisiana Grills ($30) or from BBQGuys ($40).

Therefore, the price per lb for these Whiskey barrel pellets ranges from 75 Cents to $1 per lb.

Ol’ Hick/Jim Beam Liquor Pellets – 75 Cents to $1.65 Per Lb

These Jim Beam Whisky pellets are under the Ol’Hick brand:

  • Jim Beam Pellets: Reclaimed Bourbon barrels
Ol’ Hick/Jim Beam Liquor Pellets

I have found these pellets for sale in 20 lb bags on Amazon ($33), but they often seem out of stock. I’ve also found them at Home Depot ($33) and Tractor Supply ($15) for easily the best price.

Therefore, the price per lb for these Jim Beam Whiskey barrel pellets ranges from 75 Cents to $1.65.

Cuisinart Liquor Pellets – 85 Cents Per Lb

Cuisinart currently has one of the largest offerings of liquor pellets:

  • Applewood Whiskey: Aged Oak Whiskey barrels, Applewood
  • California Red Wine Hickory: Oak Wine barrels, Hickory
  • Cherry Rum: Aged Rum barrels, Cherry wood
  • Maple Bourbon: Aged Bourbon barrels, Maple wood
Cuisinart Liquor Pellets

If you want to pick up a bag of one of the Cuisinart liquor pellet blends above, you’ll have to get them from Walmart, as that’s the only outlet I can find that stocks them.

They come in 20 lb bags with a price of $17. Therefore, the price per lb works out at just 85 Cents per lb.

  • Typical Price Per lb: 85 Cents
  • Bag Size: 20 lbs
  • Availability:

Crown Royal Liquor Pellets – $1 Per Lb

Currently, there is just one liquor pellet blend sold by Crown Royal:

  • Crown Royal Whiskey Barrel Pellets: 50% whiskey barrels, 50% sugar maple
Crown Royal Liquor Pellets

These Crown Royal Whiskey barrel pellets are sold in 20 lb bags. However, at all the outlets I can find them at, they are only sold in pairs of 20 lb bags, so 40 lbs in total.

I can find them at Amazon ($40), Home Depot ($40) and Lowes ($40). Hence, the price per lb, when purchased as a pair of bags at 40 lbs, works out consistently at $1 per lb.

BBQr’s Delight Liquor Pellets – $1.15 to $3.50 Per Lb

There are currently two liquor pellet blends sold by BBQr’s Delight:

  • Jack Daniel’s Smoking Pellets: Mellowing charcoal from the Jack Daniel’s Distillery
  • Red Wine Barrel Pellets: Reclaimed Red Wine Barrels

The Jack Daniel’s pellets from BBQr’s Delight have been around for many years now, and you can pick them up in 20 lb bags from Amazon ($30) and Ace Hardware ($23).

BBQr's Delight Liquor Pellets

The Red Wind Barrel pellets are apparently a limited run of 1,500 bags of 10 lbs. As far as I know, you can only get these pellets directly from BBQr’s Delight at $35 per bag.

Therefore, the price per lb of these BBQr’s Delight liquor pellets ranges from $1.15 to $3.50 per lb.

Kingsford Liquor Pellets – $1.18 Per Lb

Currently, there is just one blend of liquor pellets available from Kingsford:

  • Bourbon BBQ: Reclaimed Bourbon barrels, Oak
Kingsford Liquor Pellets

The only outlet I can currently find that stocks these pellets is Home Depot ($20). However, these are in 17 lb bags, not the normal 20 lb bags for other Kingsford pellets.

Therefore, the price per lb for these pellets works out to $1.18 per lb.

  • Typical Price Per lb: $1.18
  • Bag Size: 17 lbs
  • Availability:

Traeger Liquor Pellets – $1.39 Per Lb

You may want to check out my Traeger pellets review, where I discuss a blind taste test, a Traeger patent, and a lawsuit that was submitted against Traeger about how their pellets are made.

There is currently just one liquor pellet blend on offer by Traeger:

  • Traeger Whistle Pig Whiskey Barrels: Reclaimed Oak barrels, Maple
Traeger Liquor Pellets

According to Traeger, these are a limited run, so I’m sure how much longer these Whiskey barrel pellets will be available for.

They are available in 18 lb bags directly from Traeger ($25), and I’ve also found them available at Home Depot ($25).

Therefore, these Whiskey Barrel pellets come in at $1.39 per lb.

Knotty Wood Barbecue Liquor Pellets – $1.65 Per Lb

There is just one liquor blend available from Knotty Wood Barbecue currently:

Cabernet Wine Pellets: California wine, Alamond, ‘hint of Oak’

The product description for these pellets is interesting, as they are not stated to have been made from reclaimed Oak wine barrels but from California wine itself with Almond wood!?

I need to drop Knotty Wood an email to discuss this. My background in pellet manufacturing has me curious about their process. I suspect they may be soaking the Almond in wine then drying it.

Anyway, I can only currently find these Cabernet Wine pellets for sale at Home Depot ($33) in 20 lb bags. Therefore, the price per lb for these pellets works out to $1.65 per lb.

  • Typical Price Per lb: $1.65
  • Bag Size: 20 lbs
  • Availability:

Wine Country BBQ Pellets – $1.75 Per Lb

These pellets from Wind Country BBQ are made from Wind infused Oak. Wine County BBQ is located in Northern California.

Wine Country BBQ Pellets

These pellets come in 20 lb bags and can be ordered directly from the Wine Country BBQ website for $35 per bag.

Therefore, the price per lb for these Wine infused Oak pellets is $1.75.
