Buckle up - your backyard barbecue experience just got more delicious. Wood pellet grills operate much like a smoker and traditional grill combined, but many offer a number of other cooking options to choose from. When your cooking repertoire is broad and your guests love each and every one of your recipes, you'll love having the freedom to bake pizzas, sear steak and more with a single outdoor appliance on your patio.
Pellet grills preheat quickly, so you can start cooking almost immediately, and the pellets are available in a number of woods, for different smoke flavors. The smoke has a subtle wood-fired flavor with less of the acrid flavor that comes from standard wood or charcoal. For the maximum smoke flavor, it’s best to cook at a temperature lower than 250 degrees, while higher temperatures cook faster with less smoke.

Jump into summer with the Pit Boss Deluxe Wood Pellet Grill. Pit Boss brings the fun back to grilling with this heavy-duty grill with temperature range capabilities from 170–500 degrees Fahrenheit. With two levels of cooking racks, you can grill more at the same time and keep your foods in direct or indirect heat. An auto-ignition will have you up and grilling within seconds, and when you're done grilling, you can rely on the auto shutoff to wrap things up.
Take your grilling craft to the next level with the Pit Boss Grill 440D Wood Pellet Grill. This innovative grill is powered by 100% natural wood pellets leaving all of the cuisines you create with a real wood-fire flavor for the entire family to enjoy. The 440 square-inch cooking area, provides a spacious amount of space for an ample amount of food, and the 100 square-inch porcelain coated steel removable upper cooking rack supplies even more space to cook up your favorite meals. Fire up the grill fill the hopper with all natural barbecue wood pellets, set the desired cooking temperature, and start grilling you next professional-grade meal from 180-degrees to 500-degrees. 
This is the second one I have received as the first one was a lemon. The first one worked great the first 3 times I used it, but then I started getting "Err" message, as well as an overheat message randomly that would not go away. I returned it to Amazon and promptly received a replacement. I have used this one heavily for 7 days now and have had no problems. I will check back in in a couple weeks with my results. It is very well constructed, holds its temperatures well and cooks pretty evenly. I have smoked/grilled ribs using the 3/2/1 method, made stuffed hamburgers, a whole chicken, and a porterhouse steak so far. For the price you cannot beat it. The searing option where you can open the heat shield/drip tray to expose slots directly over the flame is great for cooking steaks and a nice option that you don't see on other models. The removable side tray is also nice for bringing out your meat and placing your finished product on it. The bottle opener is weird...u have to really put the bottle at an angle to open and you lose part of your beer....but it looks cool...lol. A few tips: Cover the heat shield/drip tray with new tin foil each use or else it is almost impossible to clean it. Make sure the knob is in the off position before plugging it in and wait for the numbers to stop flashing before adjusting the temperature. Always start out in the smoke position until it is smoking and a a flame has started, then turn it to your desired temperature(about 5 min). Vacuum out the firepot and inside of the barrel every other use. Most importantly....use this thing as much as possible in the first 30 days to make sure it is functioning properly so if you do have problems you can return to Amazon. I love Amazon. As soon as I clicked on 'Return' and printed the free return shipping label, they had already ordered me a new one and I had it in 3 days!!! In case you would have to return it, mark your boxes that everything came in and take pictures of how it was packed. Took me over 2 hours to pack this thing back up. Most importantly....use this grill as much as you can in the first 30 days to make sure it is functioning correctly, otherwise you will have to deal with Pitboss ...paying your own return shipping and replacing parts on your own.Also don't forget to register your grill right away on the Pitboss website, in case you have problems after the 30 day Amazon window. Checkout the Pitboss website for their recipes....some of them are quite good...the bacon wrapped asparagus tastes just like Carrabas. Just sprinkle some balsamic vinegar on it after grilling. The Pitboss spices/rubs, while expensive are very good. The sweet heat is good on anything and the mandarin habanero is amazing on wings. I sprinkle and toss after cooking. Good luck !!
This pellet grill is not just functional, it’s exceptional. With a digital control board on the front you can decide exactly what function (out of 8 available options!) you want to employ. One clever piece use of space includes a slide out plate, it converts a rack into a flame broiler for restaurant style, direct-flame grilling! The digital control board not only allows you to select a function, it actually automates the grill; meaning that after you’ve selected the temperature you can leave the pellet grill to perfectly cook whatever you want!
This grill has a very wide temperature range, allowing you to grill between 150-700F; a huge leap. The digitally controlled burner system ensures that you’re in full control of temperature changes, this adds an air of both convenience and safety that we feel customers would find very helpful. One small sacrifice to make with this wonderful grill is the cooking space. It is slightly smaller than average; but unless you’re planning on cooking for a huge team of people, it’s more than manageable. You could even argue the smaller cooking space to be more practical; as you’re left with less fuel to use, and less mess to clean.

First of all, Pit Boss uses more sophisticated technology and offers a wide range of choices. It comes with features such as automatic startup and cools down systems, which will make grilling easier and make it possible even for the beginners. Then we have a digital control system, which uses LED display. It is similar to the Traeger models, but not entirely. What’s a new feature is the smoke area which will keep the smoke inside, therefore eliminates the heat loss.

This grill produces fall off the bone ribs. I've also cooked a brisket to perfection. My only issue is that I have to clean it after every use. If it isn't cleaned properly (I remove all of the grates and use a shop vac to suction all ashes and unburned pellets) the pellets will back up and when they finally push through, you will have a huge flare up that will potentially burn whatever you are cooking as well as take the paint off the grill itself. Also, I find it works better if you set the dial to OFF and then back to whatever temperature you want. Other than those few quirks, I love this grill. I did find a larger Pit Boss after I bought this one, but it was about $150 more.
I’m kinda torn between the 700 and the 820. Is the 820 THAT much bigger than the 700 I’ve only see the 700 all put together in a store. I really don’t need bigger but in Canada the price point is almost zero between the 2 of them. The 820 is only $100 more In Canada but comes with a cover while the 700 does not so I’m leaving towards the 820 it’d be the same price after I buy a cover for the 700. We don’t BBQ in any large quantities often it’s just a coupla hunks of chicken for dinner.

They offer you the freedom of beautifully cooked food, regardless of your location. Why not take it with you on a hike or take it with you on a trip to the beach and whip up restaurant quality meat. Portable grills are also very affordable, most home-stores sell their own version that you can pick up for practically cents. The fuel source is usually charcoal, meaning you get an authentic barbeque flavor without having to invest massively, or sacrifice a lot of garden space.
There's something about wood and wood chip grills that gas and electric grills just can't replace. They can provide that little extra flavor or pop that only wood-smoking and grilling can provide. Unfortunately, that also means wood chip grills can be a little more on the expensive side. Thankfully, Walmart has just the deal if you want the kind of quality barbecue you'd find from some great joints at home.
Strangely, whenever you switch cooking temp, the auger runs continuously for four minutes before trying to adjust to the new set temp. This isn't so bad if you're going from low to high, but problematic in the opposite direction. We were slow smoking ribs when interrupted just as they passed the bend test and were ready to be sauced. Forgetting the controllers odd four minute drill, we turned the temp down from 225° to the lowest "Smoke" setting to hold them briefly. Luckily we returned within a few minutes to rescue the ribs. The continuous pellet feed had goosed temps to 400°! A serious flaw that should be corrected.
It is the PERFECT size for us. Large enough to cook for a party (you could get a full-size brisket, a medium pork shoulder and a rack of ribs or two on this grill at the same time using both racks), but it doesn’t take up the whole backyard. It gets hot enough, so that you could grill some chicken breasts or leg quarters, and/or sausage links while your briskets and ribs are resting. I plan on using this to feed about 100 guests and my son’s graduation party, and I don’t think it will even be a stretch with some good timing and finishing some brisket and pork shoulder in an oven.
