Pit Boss Apple Hardwood Pellets produce a mild yet sweet taste that is optimal for pork, poultry, vegetables, and baking products. No artificial flavors, spray scents, glues or chemicals: Pit Boss Hardwood Pellets are 100% natural. Sourced across North America, our raw wood makes for a superior finished product. Applying high pressure to sawdust during production forces natural juice in the wood to bind the pellets together with a flavor that is unique to each blend.
