There are a lot of options when it comes to grills and smokers. You can buy a cheap one or you can get one that requires that you re-mortgage your house. You can go with gas, charcoal, wood or wood pellet, or electric if you’re buying a smoker. If you’ve made it to this page, though, you’re at least curious what the advantages are to owning a pellet grill like Grilla’s Silverbac and Grilla models, so we’ll do our best to give you an unbiased look at why many people choose a pellet grill over the other available options.
1. The Flavor
This is where you have to start this discussion. Yes, there are other benefits you can read about below, but the real benefit of owning a pellet grill is the quality and flavor of the food you can make on them. The reason professional barbecue chefs use wood is because it provides the best flavor. And unlike gas or charcoal, you can vary the flavor with the type of wood pellets you choose, and you can even mix and match to create the perfect flavor for whatever you put on your grill.
