I've noticed quite a few local shops with hardwood pellets for smoking your food along with other types of hardwood chips and chunks. My idea is to use a combination of the pellets, chips, chunks, and pine shavings as a substrate for cultivating the king stratopharia spawn I have. Anybody have any thoughts or experience with this.
if you're considering buying wood pellets for smoking, they are quite expensive. wood pellets for heating and usually pretty cheap, but you're in Idaho and it's the summer. So I think your best option may be to get some wood mulch. Stropharia loves the stuff and you can probably source it from a nursery or landscaping company. That's if you can't get in touch with a tree trimming company. I got them for free that way.
