Barbecue and the Pellet Fuels Institute

What began as an idea to improve upon the grilling experience in the mid-1980s has grown into one of the hottest market opportunities in the hearth, patio and barbecue category. Wood pellet grills and smokers give backyard grillers and commercial operators alike the flavor and ambiance of wood-fired cooking with the ease and reliability of gas appliances.

Popularity in wood pellet barbecue has skyrocketed in the last decade as a trip to any specialty retailer, regional farm and ranch outlet or national hardware chain can confirm. Consumers are seeking and buying wood pellet cooking appliances in greater numbers than ever.

Members of the Pellet Fuels Institute:

  • Manufacture pellet barbecuing appliances
  • Produce wood pellets specifically formulated for grilling and smoking
  • Sell both appliances and cooking pellets to consumers
  • Support barbecue pellet manufacturers with equipment and services

The Pellet Fuels Institute is proud to represent its members as the industry works to grow the market for both recreational and commercial wood pellet grilling, educate consumers about how wood pellets for barbecuing are manufactured and work together to guarantee consumers a high-quality and safe wood pellet barbecuing experience.
