Gas and charcoal grills have dominated for more than half a century. Gas delivers convenience, because it starts instantly, and lets you easily control heat with dials. Charcoal gives you control, because you can build and shape any size fire to direct the heat, and the fuel imparts a smokier flavor. But, charcoal is not as easy to use as gas.
What if there were a grill that is even easier to use than gas—and also imparted a distinctly smoky flavor, reminiscent of food cooked over charcoal? That’s the promise of pellet grills.
Pellet grills have been around for more than 30 years, but they are really starting to gain in popularity. They’ve made the shift into the mainstream in part because the recent surge in the popularity of grilling.
Pellet grills are the perfect fit if you like the true taste of grilling with wood. They’re versatile enough to tackle chops, fish, and of course, classics, like ribs, brisket, and pulled pork. You can even cook pizza, breads, and burgers.
Pellet grills are exceptionally easy to start and offer a level of temperature control without equal. They also excel at cooking things like veggies, chicken breasts, pork chops, or just about anything that can border on boring if you’re grilling it over gas. And though they may not operate at a hugely broad temperature range, it’s easy to see how for an aspiring pitmaster, or even a casual backyard chef, a pellet grill is tough to beat.
