The design is different as well. Let’s say that Pit Boss makes a bit different, original grills, which is definitely an advantage if you are looking for a great grill, which will also look great while using it. Of course, the overall quality is above the average, so these grills are going to last for a long period of time regardless of the fact how frequently you use them.

After only two weeks the auger jammed and quit turning. I stored the grill under a cover and had it under the eaves of my house. When I contacted Pit Boss customer service they said, "Even with a cover and being under the eaves, the pellets will still pull moisture out of the air. When those pellets get wet they can swell, and prevent the auger from turning." They included two pdf documents on how to disassemble the grill to include disconnecting wiring and circuit boards. If every time it rains, I'm going to clean out the auger, no thank you. No where in the instruction booklet does it say anything about not storing pellets in the hopper or it will clog the auger and will you have to spend the next week disassembling your grill.

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 sent us their largest, top of the line 820 Deluxe model to test. Deluxe models have an attractive copper colored lid, neat stainless steel removable serving tray that also functions like a side shelf and built-in bottle opener. Standard models use a typical flame diffuser over the firepot and a flat drip pan right beneath the grates that is angled to divert drippings into a grease bucket hanging from the right side.

My first run was a warm day with little wind and the temperature held +/- 15*…about the same as an oven and much more steady than sticks, chips, or charcoal. It is remarkably efficient. I have smoked twice and grilled once and haven’t used but maybe 10lbs of pellets (I have been using the Competition Blend Pit Boss Pellets ($20 at WalMart for 40 lbs) . WAY, WAY cheaper than charcoal to run (and almost no ash!). There is all of this talk about PID controllers in pits, and I don’t know if this pit has one or not, but if not, that talk is overrated in my opinion, because I can’t imagine needing any tighter control. The pit also has “P” value setting that allows you to trade a wider temperature variance for more smoke and less pellet usage. I haven’t played with that yet, but it sounds intriguing (it comes factory set in the middle).
