Frequently asked questions
Has anyone either knowingly or unknowing used softwood pellets in their UUNI pizza oven? If so what were the results? I have never done it and see no reason to try. Just curious.... Some of the softwood pellets have higher KWH ratings than their hardwood brothers and they burn differently. It is said they give off a foul taste.
Softwoods (generally conifers) tend to have more resins. Some BBQers think that the resins make poison smoke in stick burners. I've never seen softwood pellets in my favorite BBQ supplies shop.
I cannot speak for the pellets, but I am in an area where our primary wood heat source is various species of pine. I would not want my food over that, the smoke is not pleasant like beech, oak, hickory etc.
Why is there such a difference in Price between wood pellets, I have seen the local plumbase with some for £3?
Pay careful attention to what is inside the Wood Pellets. When buying wood pellets which are meant for fuel there is no guarantee that they will be hardwood pellets. In the UK the majority of all pellets softwood.
