“Why Should I Buy a Pellet Grill?”
Pellet Grills…Are They Worth The Money?
Let’s say this up front: ‘Yes.’ There’s a slight misconception among backyard grillers that pellet grills are only for the hardcore pitmasters.
But if you’re wondering what kind of grill you should buy, pellet grills offer a simple, clean and consistent way to prepare a wide range of foods with great wood flavor. Any backyard griller can do just as well — if not better — with a pellet grill like the Silverbac or Grilla. These easy-to-operate backyard wonders can elevate the weekend charcoal-er to the neighborhood master.
Pellet Grilling is Easier Than You Think
As the name suggests, pellet grills burn small pellets sold in a variety of hardwoods to produce subtle differences in flavor. These pellets are poured into the grill’s pellet hopper and are fed by an auger to the fire pot. The fire pot itself uses fans and an igniter to create fire, which is then managed by a digital controller. There are no sudden flare-ups and no unexpected changes to the temperature. That means you can worry less about over-smoking your food.
Many grillers end up buying a pellet grill because they provide the ease and cleanliness of propane but with the flavor and taste of cooking over wood. To get started, simply press the power button on the digital control pad and the controller will deliver the pellets, the igniter will heat up, and the fans will set the correct conditions for fire creation. Next, just dial in your exact cooking temperature and you’re geared up to grill, all within a few minutes.
Smoker Grills Offer Versatility
What’s not to love about a grill and a smoker in one? It’s a space-saving, budget-friendly combo. Pellet grills are highly precise in temperature control, cooking from 180 degrees up to 500 degrees. This allows the backyard cook to do everything from slow smoking a brisket, searing a steak, making hamburgers or serving up seafood. The variety of foods you can make may surprise you — even desserts are on the table!
Our Grilla and Silverbac are built out of steel with dual-wall construction. This design keeps the thermal energy in and seals off the outside temperature. Because they’re so efficient at controlling the heat, you can plug in your pellet grill any day of the year, even in the dead of winter, and know there’s the consistent temperature inside the lid.
Don’t Want to Babysit Your Grill? Neither Do We.
Because pellet grills produce an indirect, convection-like heat, they require no more attention than a conventional oven. With their simple controls, just set it and forget it. Most of the time, you’ll have to open the grill only once during cooking, and that’s to remove your completed food.
So if you want to make delicious grilled wings and eat them too, without missing the best play of the football game, choose a pellet grill. If you’ve ever wanted a beautiful rack of ribs but don’t really think tending a fire outside on the 4th of July sounds much like a holiday, then pellet grilling is for you. And if you want the flavor of great food but don’t have the time to tend a charcoal grill, pellets are definitely the way to go.
We’ll Break Down the Benefits of a Pellet Grill:
- Ease / Convenience – One button start-up and temperature control eliminates starter fluid. No need to run to the local station to trade in your propane.
- Efficiency – You can cook for about 20 hours per 20 pounds of pellets. Pellets range from $15-20 per bag depending on brand and place of purchase. When you do the math, you will find that pellet cooking typically costs less than a comparably sized gas grill.
- Accuracy – Most stay within 10 degrees of the set temperature, no matter if it’s 10 degrees or 110 degrees outside.
- Versatility – Whether you want to grill some hot dogs or slow smoke a rib roast, pellet grills can do it all with ease.
- Flavor – There just isn’t a more natural way to get the flavor of wood-smoked food than with a pellet grill. Mix and match wood pellets and you can find your favorite hint of smoke. Try it and you’ll taste the difference.
- Value — They can cost more than the everyday grill you’ll find at a big box store, but pellet grills like our Grilla and Silverbac are made of stainless steel components and backed by a 4-year warranty.
If you’re in the market to buy a grill, you will find our grills are priced to maximize value versus quality. We believe in building a great product and standing behind it. Give ’em a try, and we know you won’t go back to your gas grilling ways.
