I might mix them with some Hickory pellets. They are only $5 for 40 lbs.

They may have worked fine. A few things to consider.

There is a reason that the cooking pellets cost significantly more, and there is much debate by some trying to save $15 bucks a bag. (Google heating pellets verses cooking pellets.) I understand that. However heating pellets are not made with food grade dies, lubricants to get them through the dies, holding bins, etc. Risking the health of family and friends does not seem worth saving a few bucks for me.

On another note, welcome to walleye central!
