They are unique in that they can function as a comprehensive smoking machine, as well as a convenient grill. They feature an offset chamber which you can load with your charcoal/wood, and a separate chamber for your food. This set-up means you can easily use them and top up your fuel without disturbing the smoke levels with the food. Even cooking is achieved by a small miracle called reverse flow technology. This really just means there’s a small perforated plate sliding between the food and smoke chamber at the perfect frequency to completely equalize the temperature.


This is definitely an interesting brand to consider. They make some of the best, big-size grills available on the market and they are more than just professional. Yes, all models use pellets, which is actually a positive side. In the Pit Boss vs. Traeger comparison, we must add that they are based on the same technology, but there are some differences.
My Pit Boss totally exceeded my expectations. For the price, you can't beat the consistency and durability of this grill. Here in Texas we take BBQ very seriously. As a craftsman in front of the grill, my family my friends and I have have been pleaased with how well my recipes have turned out. I feel like I've taken my cooking to a higher level with a Pit Boss

Well, there is! I bought this grill for a third what the Traeger costs, and guess what? It does a great job!! There are a couple of immediate advantages this grill has over my old grill. One, you can sear with it. Can't on the Traeger. Two, you can adjust the "P" setting for more or less smoke. I've got mine set to a little higher than medium. No adjustment on the Traeger.
Here's the conundrum pellet smoker manufacturers have been facing all along – people who own them love the ease of use and excellent results, and have no remorse for paying a few hundred bucks more than the cost of their neighbor's grill. But for many, pellet smokers are overpriced foreign objects, although that's changing as the pellet smoker industry slowly infiltrates the country, one backyard at a time. So we love finding a decent pellet smoker at a low price like Pit Boss. But remember – don't pay the MSRP posted below. At list price we give the 820D an AmazingRibs.com Best Value Bronze Medal. At around $500 it jumps to Silver. List price on the standard 820 is about a hundred bucks less than Deluxe.

This grill is just small enough to pack away in a bag and prop up ready for use with its folding legs. The hood can also latch on separately so you can pack things away in the most efficient way possible. The dome thermometer is clear and easy to read, and with just the click of a button the grill will flare up, ready for use. The grill has 2 10,000 BTU burners which you can control independently; you can optimize your cooking platform to cook things completely differently on the same space.


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.

The beauty of a grill like this is the deceptive flexibility when it comes to prepping your food, with eight options. You can, for example, sear, smoke, bake, or grill, depending on what's being prepped. Just select how you want to prepare it on the thermostatic controls and either let the food sit or move the plate and cook over an open flame. And with the options of wood chips available, you can add that little extra flavor to anything you're preparing.

Cleaning and Maintenance: Any individual who’s taken a stab at cleaning a pellet grill before sees exactly that it is so hard to get all the ash out after use. 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.
Pit Boss Wood Pellet Grills are fueled by all-natural wood pellets.

While many people enjoy pellet grills, some find it difficult to use pellets to produce true, flavorful steaks and barbecue since the fuel often lacks the same flavors as traditional grills. That smoky, wood flavor many steaks have is not impossible to get with the right pellet grill however. The Z Grills Wood Pellet Grill sports a combined grill/smoker setup with temperature control for the best pellet grilling experience available.
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.
