As far as clean-up goes, in my opinion, it is significantly easier to clean a pellet grill as apposed to like a traditional gas or charcoal option. On the Pit Boss options remove the grill grates, and then use a vacuum and the hose attachment to suck up the pellet dust, and clear the burner. The burner can sometimes get clogged so clearing that with the vacuum works nicely. After that it’s just a matter of grabbing a rag and wiping the grease from the grill.
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.
Cooking Area – Search for one with a substantial cooking region. Keep in mind that pellet barbecues arrive in an extensive variety of sizes. In this manner, pick a unit that can meet your size necessities in light of its cooking territory. You don’t need to purchase an additional extensive unit in case you’re utilizing the grill for your home. Check for the physical measurements of the item and figure out which one can fit your space and stay aware of your cooking style and lifestyle.
It is the PERFECT size for us. Large enough to cook for a party (you could get a full-size brisket, a medium pork shoulder and a rack of ribs or two on this grill at the same time using both racks), but it doesn’t take up the whole backyard. It gets hot enough, so that you could grill some chicken breasts or leg quarters, and/or sausage links while your briskets and ribs are resting. I plan on using this to feed about 100 guests and my son’s graduation party, and I don’t think it will even be a stretch with some good timing and finishing some brisket and pork shoulder in an oven.
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.
Update 2/18/2018: I made another call to Pit Boss today to get more information about their Copperhead vertical smoker.  The phone was answered on the second ring by a man in Oregon. He was incredibly helpful and even went out to the warehouse and measured the grates for me.  It looks like if you can get past the automated system and reach a real person then these guys will take care of you.
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.

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.

Preparing this Top 5 List was no easy task. Pit Boss products are exceptional, and to really hone exactly what makes a perfect grill from their range, we had to determine 32 different ideal grill qualities. Some of these qualities were things specifically mentioned by Pit Boss in product descriptions, other qualities are ones established as vital to consumers through our in-depth customer feedback research.
The first 820 Deluxe Pit Boss sent was defective. It made a loud clanging sound and visibly shook with each clang. It quickly became obvious that something was wrong with the auger. Pit Boss took it back and sent another that worked fine. The exact reason for the clanging was never adequately explained. Recognizing the popularity of Pit Boss and lack of substantive complaints by owners, we give them the benefit of the doubt and are willing to accept this problem was an anomaly. We could not find any other account of a similar issue with Pit Boss, and indeed, the vast majority of buyers seem pleased.
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.

You can grill perfectly smoked ribs, bake pizza, grill some steak or burgers, and it’s perfectly cooked every time.
Purchased this grill a couple months ago for my husband. Everything we grill/smoke turns out perfect (and we are not chefs)! Very happy with this purchase and will never go back to gas grills or other types of smokers. This grill is so versatile and easy to clean. The flavor and textures of briskets, steaks, chicken, fish, burgers, etc turn out so well, we feel like we are cheating. The temperatures that we set are on target and it evenly cooks the food. It's very heavy duty and we look forward to using this grill for many years to come. If you purchase this grill you will not regret it. One more thing, we were concerned that it would not be big enough. It is great for a family of 4 but also works well when having guests. I would say this is a good mid-size grill. If you are looking for a large grill to entertain with you may want to look for a larger size.
