We’ve looked at grills with larger hopper capacities, but this one has been reported to hold anywhere from 10-20 pounds, depending on who you ask, but you should be able to fit a twenty-pound bag in there. This isn’t really a major point of contention because it’s simple to add more pellets as needed, and you can have this thing smoking all day without having to add more.
These grills are the convenient, clean and easy way to grill meat quickly. If you’re limited on space and budget electric grills are the perfect provider for your needs. The one downfall is that you don’t get the same flavor as you would with wood chips or charcoal; the benefits for some outweigh this negative, in that the meat itself still tastes great and it’s all in all, just so much easier.
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.
After much research and learning how easy a pellet grill/smoker was to use I purchased one. I have never smoked anything before and honestly only ever grilled hot dogs and hamburgers. After building this I primed it as the manual suggests and then smoked a pork shoulder for 10 hours and oh my! After I slid the flame broiler cover over and grilled steaks, brats, burgers, and dogs. Everyone couldn’t have been happier including myself!
