    Extra Smoke
    These pellets are the same size and shape as the name brand pellets so, they work in combination with those other pellets to add more smoke. These pellets do seem to add more smoke than using regular pellets alone. I was not able to taste an immediate difference but I am going to continue to use Maclean's and experiment with them. I mixed perhaps 20 percent of the Maclean pellets to the other pellets. I think it's fun experimenting with different pellets and I recommend using those pellets.

    Cool alternative to wood pellets
    First time using this type of pellet on my grill. I happen to have a grill that sears or smokes, and I used these pellets to sear burgers, chicken breasts and ribeyes. Compared to hickory, or another "wood" flavored pellet this gives the meats a distinctly different taste. It's not exactly like cooking over charcoal, but I wouldn't say that smoking with pellets is exactly like smoking with real wood either. I probably wouldn't use this product to smoke for long cooking periods, just my thoughts. The 5# bag was just enough for 3 grilling sessions including preheating, about 1/3 of the grill hopper.

    Perfect for my charcoal grill
    We do a lot of camping and grilling. We always grill with charcoal and these pellets work great with charcoal. There's no pre-soaking like there are with wood chips. I just throw a small handful of pellets on the hot coals just before adding the food. They add a very subtle smoky flavor. My grill doesn't have a cover so the flavor is not as strong as I imagine it would be with a grill that has a cover.

    Great for BBQ Smoker
    This is my review of the Maclean's OUTDOOR Smoking Pellets Bundle (3-Pack). This review will concentrate on the Charcoal Charbon. These pellets are made from real charcoal and considered quick starting with easy clean up. You can use these with all types of meat and fish. I used mine in my gas grill with a smoke box. Do not soak these pellets. There are so many ways to use these pellets that I found online.

    Really brings out a good taste
    I ordered a pellet grill and then I found these bourbon barrel pellets so I ordered a five pound bag. I am a rookie at pellet grilling, but the pellets I got were well made and burned well. The aroma was enticing and the taste was very nice. For my first try on this I went with some burgers and my taste testers thought it was very good (so did I). I will definitely get some more of these to go with some steaks.

    Clean and convenient, but not the best choice on a gas grill
    I confess that I got these without actually owning a pellet grill; my smoker is decommissioned for the winter and I was intrigued by the promise of adding smoke flavor to the items cooked on my gas grill. The results were mixed. When placed in a smoker box on a gas grill, I did get some smoke favor infusing the fat on steaks, but the effect was muted for the meat itself. I had better results using chunks of wood in the smoker box, but it was hard to beat the convenience of the pellets. I expect better results using these pellets on the charcoal-fired grill (they can be easily dropped through the cooking grate as a late addition), but that grill is also still under cover for another month or so. The pellets burn cleanly and clean-up was easy afterwards. These bear an uncanny resemblance to the alfalfa pellets I got for my kid to feed Car Alarm, his guinea pig. Unlike the pet food, these have very little odor, and unlike most things that go into my grill, they don’t transfer black (or any other color) to my palm when handling them. These pellets were supplied in a 5 pound (2.3KG) plastic bag that did not survive the shipping process. The surrounding cardboard box kept everything together, but added the need to transfer the contents to a pair of gallon plastic freezer bags.

    Smoky Goodness
    MacLean’s is located in Ontario, near Toronto, and the company was begun in 2012. You get three 5 pound bags of wood pellets, in three great flavors; bourbon, rum and charcoal. All are made from “retired” alcohol barrels. (Talk about the ultimate re-use!) All three varieties began smoking very quickly. On my gas grill, the charcoal blend gave a nice scent, like cooking over real charcoal (instead of just the gas flames). The other two flavors impart a great smoky flavor. You can’t choose the wrong flavor with this 3-pack, as all are suitable for any kind of meat. I use them while grilling, and the foods come out so much better than plain gas grilling. Put your pellets in a smoker box, like this: https://www.homedepot.com/p/Kaluns-Stainless-Steel-Gas-or-Charcoal-Smoker-Box-K-GSB-HD/316267414 . I highly recommend this product.

    Great Classic Flavor!
    This is for sure not for everyone. But I think if you're looking at these then it is probably for you! Yes, this will give you that classic charcoal flavor to your smoker, without the additional taste of lighter fluid. The smoker I have is not good for grilling or searing so I reverse seared some burgers with the gas grill and the flavor was great. I also did some ribs with them and they came out amazing. I mixed half these and half of the competition blend pellets that I use. If you like the taste of charcoal with the convenience of your pellet smoker just get these already.

    A strong flavored pellet
    I'm reviewing this MacLean's outdoor 5 lb bag of Bourbon barrel BBQ smoking pellets. I used these in a smoke tube on my pellet smoker I find it doesn't always get enough smoke with just the pellet that heat it. I found the smoke tube it was easy to light and it burned all the way to the end meaning these MacLean pellets we're nice and dry like they should be. They put up plenty of smoke with a nice aroma I smoked a small beef brisket that came out with lots of smoke flavor it was a little too strong for my wife but it was I was happy with the turnout.
