This pellet grill allows you to cook between the temperatures of 170F all the way up to 600F. The idea of cooking at such high temperatures sounds like a scary concept; but with the automated control system regulating air flow, you can be assured of a clean, safe and flavorful cook. The use of fans within the grill not only ensure safety and flavor, but cook food completely evenly, meaning you can rest assured of perfection every time. Even deactivating the grill post-use is made simple; all you need to do is press a button and the grill will safely power down, cooling as necessary all automatically.

An auto-ignition will have you up and grilling within seconds, and when you're done grilling, you can rely on the auto shutoff to wrap things up.

I started by boiling the potatoes on the gas grill while giving the chicken a quick sear on the charcoal grill to lock in the moisture. Then I transferred the chicken to the smoker to finish it because I like the smoky flavor, but more importantly, because the wood pellet grill cooks more evenly and isn’t prone to hot spots or flare ups. While the chicken was smoking and the potatoes were boiling, I started the pesto and then put the potatoes on the gas grill for a crispy finish. I may never eat potato salad any other way!

Camp Chef have been a notable and solid producer of grills for some time now, and have earned their position in the market, with straightforward, yet proficient outlines, which offer purchasers great outcomes. They had stated, prior to release, that the PG24 Pellet Grill and Smoker, would give clients brilliant elements and a high level of usefulness, with exact temperature readings, and I needed to see whether this genuine. This Camp Chef PG24 Review expects to give purchasers all the data they have to settle on an educated purchasing choice.
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.

With 341 square inches of cooking space and a digital control board that sets the temperature from 180 to 500 degrees, you’ll be cooking whole meals in this grill, even though it’s the smallest model that Pit Boss makes. It will hold up to a dozen burgers for parties, or a chicken and vegetables for the family dinner. When cooking is done, the porcelain coated grill grates are easy to clean.
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.

With the amply sized cooking space, steel shelf and serving tray, you’ll have plenty of room for prepping, cooking and plating your food.

Pellet grills are outdoor cookers in every sense of the word. In saying that, I mean that they can bake, smoke and grill all through the magic of wood pellets and an electronic control panel that deposits just the right amount of pellet to maintain the perfect cooking temperature. With the simple turn of a knob, you can conjure up the gorgeous complex flavor of wood smoked meat without having to deal with the hassle of manual smoking.
Pit Boss offers a Small 340, Medium 440 Deluxe, Large 820 and 820 Deluxe. The numbers indicate total cooking surface including warming racks. All are 16 gauge black powder coated steel with porcelain coated cast iron grates, coated steel rod secondary removable cooking racks, and coated wire lower shelves. A handle attached to the wood pellet hopper on the left enables you to easily lift Pit Boss and roll it around on two large steel wheels on the right. A handy bracket to wrap up the electric cord is also located on the hopper (shown below).

Pit Boss has a vast array of grills, ranging from ceramic to gas to pellet grills. Not to mention the vertical smokers and smoking grills. We know you don’t have all the time – and the resources – in the world to research or try out every single one of them in order to decide what’s best for you. That’s why we decided to do the dirty work ourselves. We did our homework, researched users’ reviews and recommendations, and came up with the best Pit Boss grills according to type. You’re welcome.
I sincerely hope that you and rj009 are correct and that this is an affordable pellet grill that will last for many, many years. However, until I see the real world longevity data, or an indication from Danson that they are willing to stand behind their products, then I am going to keep pointing folks to Green Mountain (2 year warranty), Camp Chef (3 year warranty) and Rec Tec (6 year warranty).

Most of them work in a very similar way. There’s a hopper attached to either the side or the back of the grill which holds pellets, often between 10-40 pounds at once, and it feeds them into the flames as necessary to achieve your desired temperature. The temperatures often range from 170 degrees up to 500. This allows you to smoke your food very slowly, for a perfectly flavorful and tender result, or to get the cooking done rather quickly while still using the flavor profile of the pellets.

Packaging was good inside and out. All parts were secured to prevent damage and we liked the colorful graphics on the hopper and under the hood that explained how a pellet smoker works for a first time user. When the 820 was almost fully assembled, we noticed an unused bag of washers that were not mentioned in the assembly instructions except in the parts list. After being on hold with customer service for ten minutes, we were advised to unscrew everything and refasten all parts adding the washers to the screw and lock nut assemblies.

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.
Be sure to read the manual before operating. There is vital information there, especially for the first fire up. One note that the manual does not mention, is that when you first fill the hopper, it takes several minutes for the pellets to reach the firebox. On your first "attempt", it is likely that the firebox will turn off before the pellets reach it, and you will think your grill is defective. Its not. Either "prime" the firebox with a small handful of pellets, or let it cycle once, unplug, and restart on "smoke" setting. You should always start the grill on "smoke" setting with the lid up until the initial smoke clears and you hear a nice "roar" of pellets burning...
