The first 820 Deluxe Pit Boss sent was defective. It made a loud clanging sound and visibly shook with each clang. It quickly became obvious that something was wrong with the auger. Pit Boss took it back and sent another that worked fine. The exact reason for the clanging was never adequately explained. Recognizing the popularity of Pit Boss and lack of substantive complaints by owners, we give them the benefit of the doubt and are willing to accept this problem was an anomaly. We could not find any other account of a similar issue with Pit Boss, and indeed, the vast majority of buyers seem pleased.

Bought the smoker about 6 months ago - haven't started the gas grill since! I still have a propane smoker at the campground - going to try and sell that because we love the pit boss that much. We've smoked ribs, pork loin, prime rib, steaks, pizza and one of my favorites was smoked cheese. By turning up the"p"setting we were able to keep the temp down to around 80-95 degrees. We've smoked food in 90 temps all the way to 20 below zero it's no joke. Absolutely love the pit boss!
The Pit Boss Grills 340 Wood Pellet Grill is a great grill with dial-in digital control and led read-out. Pellets are 100% natural hardwood. This grill has got an automatic start and cool down. It’s heavy duty with 16 gauge steel construction. It’s easy to assemble. It’s a little expensive. However, other grills are more expensive and seeing that I would recommend this to anyone.

This unit gives you a less demanding access to the burn pot. It also includes a trap door which permits you to clean the unit without digging through the ashes and oil. Cleaning the unit is by and large significantly less demanding when compared with the normal charcoal grills.

We just bought a 700 today and am very frustrated. We sat for 4 hours trying to maintain the temperature. On smoke, it went as high as 450 and stayed.. and this continued on every temperature we tried. We set the “p” setting to all the different possibilities.. We finally gave up after trying to get it to maintain a 250 degree temp.. it kept going over 400.. I don’t understand and not to happy tonight. Anyone have these issues?

A screen covers the top of the hopper. Meant as a safety feature to prevent fingers from getting injured in the auger chute below, it also prevents one from easily leveling the pellets as they get sucked into the auger. We removed the screen and vowed to keep digits out of harms way. All models have an older style digital thermostatic dial controller with an LED display for set temp and actual temp. The controller has a couple undesirable quirks we'll address shortly.

Was originally looking for a gas grill, this grill had everything I was looking for and more. Larger cooking space, no flare ups, ability to smoke. I have zero fluctuations in temp, but there is a significant temp difference between controller temp and lid thermometer. I have learned how to deal with this. Also, it comes with 2 temp probes that I use always that help, plus I just learned on Youtube that if you adjust the "P" settings you can fix this issue. Other small things that I like about this grill is Made In America, Instructions only in English, and they were specific to this model (not cut n paste saying "if applicable"). 40lb bag of pellet compared to propane tank consumption is close, but you will spend a little more for a bag of pellets and maybe have to buy slightly more often than a tank refill....but I have been grilling a lot more also. I also compared to other brands as well. Probably the worst thing about this grill is Walmart cant keep them in stock
Ease of Use: At first, the unit appears somewhat mind boggling to use however when you get over it the first occasion when it turns out to be very simple. For one thing, there is a get-together video instructional exercise from the maker’s site for a less demanding get-together. Else, anybody that has used a BBQ before wouldn’t have any type of trouble with the unit.

Warranty is available upon request from Pit Boss so you can rest assured of your grill’s longevity. Another benefit to this grill is the fact its sole fuel source lies in woodchips.

Its automated system will control exactly the required amount of chips for an individual grill session, meaning you can spend more time getting on with your day.

I bought my pit boss 700FB a little over a year ago and I have used it at least once a week since I bought it. I have done everything from searing steaks to smoking brisket, Overall the quality is ok. But.... 1. It has a hard time holding lower temps, if I set the temp to 200 it will go to 275 then slowly go back to 200 then shoot back up again. 2. The heat deflector and and the tabs that hold it are are made from a low quality steel and are literally falling apart due to scaling. Other than those two complaints the grill is not bad for the price. I do not expect my grill to last much longer because of the tabs that hold the heat deflector are about to snap off, once that happens the grill is useless.
Loving my first pellet bit boss grill. But I did do a few modifications on it . I added LAVA LOCK GASKET to the door so I wouldn't lose smoke and heat and I also added a spring latch to help seal everything. And last thing I added was a bottle opener lol.. I must say this is a nice piece of equipment.. add working like a champ. I would of gave 5 stars but I had to and a few mods.
