You are correct, I do not KNOW if these grills will last. That is also the point that I am trying to make…we don’t know if they will last and I am not going to put down several hundred bucks on something that doesn’t have a solid track record. This is a new brand that only carries a one year warranty. Pit Boss is made by the exact same people who make grills that carry a three year warranty on the electronics and a five year warranty on everything else on their high end pellet grills. Danson KNOWS how to make a pellet grill that lasts and they decided that they would only back the Pit Boss for one year.

I just love this smoker/grill! I use it at least twice a week. I’ve made great pizza’s (on my Pit Boss Pizza Stone) The first one I ordered was delivered, and was broken. I called Pit Boss, and they replaced it right away, without any hassle! That’s good customer service! I love the fact that they carry so many natural flavored wood pellets. I use the apple wood pellets for ribs, the Hickory for steaks and chicken, and the competition blend for grilling burgers, salmon, etc. My friends are always impressed by the quality, I mean, this thing is a flavor machine! I’ve read a few negative reviews, but I have not had any problem with this machine. All you have to do is keep it clean, and it performs like a champ! I am very satisfied with this product, and would highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking about getting a new grill or smoker. Sincerely, Happy Pallet in Venice, Florida!

Wood pellet grills are a great addition to any home because they combine everything you love about a smoker with a standard grill. Depending on the model that you buy, you can make smoked dishes like brisket and sausage at the same time that you make burgers, hot dogs and other dishes on the grill. These grills are great for family dinners in the summer and for parties and special occasion celebrations.

With a 20-pound hopper capacity, the grill has plenty of space for wood pellets to keep grilling during long event and parties when you have many mouths to feed. An automatic pellet feeder makes it easy to maintain the desired temperature, so you can focus on just the grilling itself.
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.

Kamado Grills are the Japanese, adorable egg-shaped equivalent of a grill. Kamado grills use wood as their primary fuel source and allow you to smoke and grill at the same time to an excellent standard. The thick walls of the vessel are also perfect for slow cooking, with the top and bottom air vents circumventing flow through the vessel using a large ceramic divide in the center of the ‘egg’. This ceramic insert pushes heat towards the edges of the vessel, and away from directly hitting the meat, this results in the most beautiful cook.
Gas grills are the best friend of the busy (or easily confused) person. With just the turn of a knob, the grill flames alight ready to use. There’s no added fuel cost and no worries with disposal of ash. With just a quick wipe post use it’s all ready for another sunny day. They also preheat very quickly, within 10 minutes you’ll be ready to start laying out your meat medley for grilling.
You can use any brand of pellets in here, but we highly recommend finding some pellets that are 100% natural hardwood. You can get individual woods like apple, mesquite, hickory, and cherry. You can also get blends that contain various amounts of different hardwoods. In any case, the type of wood that you’re burning is going to influence the taste that the smoke adds to your food, and this pellet grill will work with any quality pellets – not just the ones made and sold by Pit Boss.
To start, let’s talk equipment. You don’t need to spend a lot, but you do need something reliable. I love my Pit Boss Memphis Wood Pellet Grill. It’s an all-in-one gas grill, charcoal grill, and electric smoker. And it’s available exclusively at Walmart! Since it has three cooking methods in one, I made the dinner you see all outside using this grill.
As with any other outdoor grill, be sure your pellet grill comes with all the bells and whistles. Adjustable temperature control and convection technology help ensure you can prepare fish, veggies, ribs and steaks to perfection, while generous cooking areas will allow you to serve meals for larger groups of people. Browse pellet smokers with varying hopper sizes to be sure it can pack enough pellet fuel for all-day barbecuing sessions, as well as pellet smokers with side trays and utility hooks to keep your outdoor cookware, spatulas and other utensils at your fingertips.

While marinades and seasonings help meats and veggies taste delicious, wood smoking chips and pellets can add rich flavor to your dishes, too. Many are designed to add robust maple and hickory flavors to meats as well as hints of fruit, like apple and peach, that are perfect for poultry. You can even stock the hopper with a mix of your favorite flavors to create a signature dish that's sure to impress even the pickiest of eaters.
Deluxe models have a unique arched drip plate, (above), which is found on many Louisiana smokers. Attempting to create a hot sear zone, a small plate is used to slide over openings in the larger arched plate to open or close direct exposure to the flaming firepot. The idea of exposing foods to the fire pot is used by several brands of pellet smokers. Generally it doesn't work well because the firepot flame is just too small to do much searing. Pit Boss is no exception. We placed a flight of chicken wings over the open slider, flipping occasionally while taking care not to move them from their original positions. As expected, only the few wings directly over the flame were seared,(below). The slider design dictates the absence of a flame diffuser over the firepot and one is not included with Deluxe models.
Convection is achieved using a number of techniques. Air is fan forced into the grill and channeled throughout by our arched flame broiler. Our exhaust design allows air to circulate evenly along the length of the grill and to the top shelf. This combination allows us to achieve uniform heat throughout the unit whether your smoking at 170°F or cooking all the way up to 600° Fahrenheit.
