Are you a barbecue connoisseur who is looking for a new and improved way to hone your skill? Pellet grills offer the convenience of gas grills but with a flavor boost from hardwoods. This smart outdoor appliance may be just what you are looking for.
A pellet grill uses wood pellets that are about 1 inch to 1 ½ inches long and resemble rabbit food. These pellets are fed automatically into a burn pot and provide the heat and/or smoke you need with dependability and ease. We carry some of the leading manufacturers of pellet grills – Traeger and Green Mountain Grills.
Three good reasons to buy a pellet grill follow:
Pellet grills come with a pellet chamber that you pour the fuel into. The pellets feed at the rate you set, whether manually or with a remote control. No struggling to light charcoal or to keep a fire going. This fire won’t go out unless you run out of pellets; and in some models, an alarm will sound if you run low. For heavy duty barbequing, you can get a grill with an extra-large pellet capacity. Some models offer the convenience of a remote control, making it possible to simply set the temperature you want with no further muss or fuss.
You can barbecue on pellet grills, but they also roast and smoke BBQ. Whether on a low or high temperature, these great outdoor grills will smoke for many hours. You can also choose from a variety of pellet smoke flavors, such as oak, apple, mesquite, cherry and hickory.
When you cook with pellet grills as opposed to other types of grills, you reduce the amount of carcinogenic chemicals that are produced. Pellet grills use an indirect heating method, which is healthier. According to the National Cancer Institute, there are certain chemicals produced by cooking muscle meats at high temperatures, and those chemicals increase the risk of cancer. Another carcinogenic substance is created when fat drips into fire on other types of grills, but that hazard is also eliminated when you cook with pellet grills.Posted by:
