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.
Pellet grills come in many different sizes with a variety of features. To take the top spot among pellet grills, the Camp Chef SmokePro DLX Grill offers the best combination of grilling space, heat control, and easy-to-achieve flavors that will create tasty meats time and time again. The grill makes cooking with pellets quick, easy, and enjoyable no matter how much skill you have on the grate.
Among all of Pit Boss’ gas grills, this unit has an impressive review frequency – meaning a lot of those who bought it were definitely satisfied with this grill. It has four racks – all porcelain-coated, making it very spacious and easy to clean, a separate chamber for wood chips so you can easily refuel without disrupting the smoking procedure, and a viewing window on the door to let you see just how well the cooking is proceeding without opening the cooking chamber. This grill uses dual burners for uniform cooking, and has a temperature range of 100 to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Best of all, this grill is unbelievably priced at under $200 – which definitely makes it quite a steal!
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.
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.

The grills that our Grills Forever team picked were chosen not only based on their efficiency and price, but in reference to customer satisfaction, as well as aesthetic appeal. Our in-depth analysis of all the Pit Boss reviews we found supplied us with reliable data that we were able to authenticate with the Pit Boss grills’ individual manual specifications.
When it comes to portable grills, this one from Pit Boss definitely stands out. This stainless steel for each of the burners. It’s also extra lightweight at only 27lbs, so you can carry it with you on a weekend road trip, to the park for a small picnic, or during a camping trip to the woods. It’s very convenient, very nifty, easy to use, and most of all, it is reasonably priced at $125. Now, that’s definitely value for your money.
This grill is simply amazing. Many people told me to get the Trager and I honestly was about too. But my wife wouldn’t sign off on spending 700 bucks. And rightfully so. So I did some more research and found Pit Boss! This is solid, it feel nice, heavy closing lid, great hopper feed, and no issues so far. I’ve read that many people have some inconsistencies in their temps but it’s mostly to do with how they operate. If you switch back and forth between multiple temps, it will automatically feed wood to the fire for 2.5 mins and cause a spike in smoke or temp. So to avoid this when you are switch from smoke to a higher temp, move your meat to the upper shelf.
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.

This was a gift from my wife for my 65th B-day. I have been smoking foods most of my adult life and still have one wood, one propane and one charcoal smoker but this is my first pellet. It's so easy it's boring. I just load it, shut the lid and and walk away. No puffing, no loading of wood or water, no worry's with temperature, easy to clean and makes me look like the pit boss. From the searing of steaks, to smoked red and white meats, to baking entire meals, this is the best. My friends have the others, but I have the best.
The ceramic body has an integrated damper constructed from high quality cast iron. The grill itself is on wheels, meaning that it’s easily transportable should you want to move it around your backyard. It even comes in 2 sizes; a 22-inch model (which is the one we’ve based this review on), and a slightly larger model at 24 inches. The grill allows for moisture-lock in, the heavily insulated walls and the heat from the charcoal uniquely seeps into the food infusing it with flavor and moisture. The incredible insulation qualities of the grills also mean that you get the most out of each lump of charcoal so you can save on fuel expenses.

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.


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.
With an available cooking space of 700 sq ft you can expect to serve up to 6 people with just one round of cooking. It’s therefore perfect for batch cooks, or even just for a family meal. To improve this even further, the cooking space is constructed from high quality cast iron; meaning you’ll get all the extra benefits of cooking with iron without the expense! The total shipping weight for the item is 184lbs which is expected for an item of this quality and type. Although most of the grill is pre-assembled, there is a little bit of assembly involved so that’s worth bearing in mind.
Pit Boss is a company worth trusting. They’re a large corporation built around quality, efficiency and meeting customer needs. They even allow you to register any product with their brand on their website, for full warranty and online manual access. So, even if you’ve decided on buying one of their grills elsewhere, you can rest assured they’ve got you covered. Although Pit Boss grills often come only partially assembled, you really only need a screwdriver and a tiny bit of time to fit the pieces together quickly and easily. For the wood pellet grills, Pit Boss stock their own range of flavored, all American wood pellets that you can buy not only from their website, but all across the web (they’re notoriously brilliant!)
