More New Pellets @ Bunnings...And $12.90 a bag....

  • So was on a mission to collect something from Bunnings today.....more on that elsewhere.
    While there I spotted these New Pellets at a bargain basement price.....no I did not grab any to try as yet and it was a 15kg bag.
    I am not certain who makes these as they were "Unbranded" & carry no hint of who makes them......but boy oh boy the packaging has similarities to the "Smokin" brand, & they are Australian made pellets.
    Anyone in Melbourne interested in these, I spotted them at the New Oakleigh store!

  • Recycled hardwood potentially sets off an alarm from me. If it's recycled from housing demo, I'd be worried about subfloor and chemicals.


    Roof timber no issue, just subfloor.

  • It looks like the 15kg plain white bags BBQs Galore sold for $16. I used them in a DB I had at the time and they were ok but the burn time was quick so the value dropped a bit in that regard. I doubt that they'd be able to label them as suitable for a BBQ if they had chenicals in them and it was similar labelling with the BBQ Galore packs. They were made in NSW from memory and I think the company was called was Pacific. Maybe it's the same mob?

    Roof timber is normally covered in asbestos fibres. They probably not using housing timber though as housing demo gets belted over with a 30t excavator and sent to landfill.


    It’s probably virgin waste from sawmills or forestry.

    Not over here, a good amount is remilled into boards.

  • Really? Wow, I couldn’t imagine a large-scale use for old 3x2 and 5x3 that was put up green and is more twisted than not, and potentially contaminated to boot. Always seemed a waste, but can’t see anything economical to be done with it.

    At the risk getting off topic, I'll reply quickly.


    i don't think it was green when it went up. Jarrah is sought after, and it's such a Hardy timber it Mills up beautifully. 3x2 less of a market, makes great Barton's though, but 4x2 and bigger can make some stunning boards.


    It's also mostly fairly straight.

  • Yeah most of the older houses have all jarrah roofs and beams and there really good bits of wood in w.a and can’t say there all bent etc too and be worth a bit $$


    As long as there not using the new wood they use now days.. treated pine =O


    But anyways to bring it back to topic l.. who’s getting a bag to give it a try?

  • I'd suggest that it would be better mixed with some hickory pellets like those sold by Bunnings (Samba). A 50/50 mix should work well I reckon.

  • Can somebody get me the iin code

    I think as this is a new line, they won't be in many stores as yet.
    You could call the Oakleigh store and get the IN. probably.

  • In code is 3171909 local store has them at $15.90 order in.


    They are also getting the pit boss pellets in at $29.95 for 9kg same as traeger normal prices.


    I am in Central qld so your price may vary.

  • Found out where these pellets are coming from...... out of Tasmania.

    Here is a link to a story done a while back....but I am thinking these could be an ok product...especially as @Gumb mentioned to use as a blend with other pellets.


    Will let you know as I now have a bag!!!

  • Well it's pretty hard to deny that's them. There still not abled to be ordered in as the supplier isn't approved yet.


    Im going to use this for the pizza oven but at $1kg this may become my go to pellet.


    Let us know what you think.
