I checked with the company that makes the pellets that I use in my home pellet heater. They are made exactly the same as the ones for cooking are. Nothing but wood and water are used in the process. They even have a pellet grill that the employees use all of the time with their pellets. Hardwood pellets are the ones you want. I used them in my smoker and they were fine. I might mix them with some Hickory pellets. They are only $5 for 40 lbs.
