Cheers,
John

    Pelleting wood can provide many advantages.

    These include:

    - Increased density
    - Easier handling
    - Reduced transportation costs
    - Possibility to store energy
    - Homogeneous fuel
    - More stable combustion
    - Lower investment in boiler plant
    - Environmental advantages
    - Big customer potential

    Regarding your query:

    The process of feed production can be seen on <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.feedmachinery.com/glossary.htm">http://www.feedmachinery.com/glossary.htm</a><!-- m -->

    The process of wood pellet production is as below:

    I know it an old topic but I have a issue related you g to wood Pelleting, thought you guys can help me out. I am out looking at BGE and Primo ceramic grills today. At the Primo dealer, I was looking at the oval and the round and asking questions. The salesperson asked if I had seen a Traeger wood pellet grill. I had not so we took a look. I have to say that I was impressed. It is not a flashy BBQ but the design is elegant and simple. I like that the wood pellets can be purchased in different types of woods such as oak , cherry, mesquitec. (found in one of the articles on wood pellets resource). Starting up the Traeger seems to be almost as easy as a gas grill. Turn it on and an auger starts moving pellets into the burn cup and lights them, after a few minutes it is ready to go. The cooking is all indirect/IR/convection. They claim it can get up to 450 degrees for grilling a steak or burgers. The price is comparable to a ceramic grill. Maintenence and cleanup seem to be a little less than a ceramic grill. I imagine the cost of pellets could run about the same as running a gas grill at ~$18 per bag. The ceramic grill is probably more economical on its use of lump charcoal.
