Nothing does compare to grilled food in my personal opinion,that smoky flavor is really a tough one to beat . There are different types of grills like TEC , REC on the market, but one of the most well known choices these days in the market is a wood pellets grill. The best thing about these are they give you the best grilled , smoky flavor with the benefit of electric. No hassles with charcoal, propane and you get some wonderful flavor along with that
Word on the street is that gas grills will be replaced by pellet grills. They showcase the benefits of a real Woody smoky flavor with the ease of usage. They can be wrong. Same things cannot be said about pellet grills.
But an exceptional pellet grill can be bought for under $1000 USD , but do keep in mind. Not all the pellet grills are have the same functions. This below list reflects the best pellet grills in that price range. Some grills are very innovative while some do have the old looks to it. All in all they are limited by function.
They are not the elites but they do get the job done so they are good. If you really want that genuine smoky flavor with an easiness to use but don’t want to splurge much on the grills then do check these out.
Chef champ Woodwind with Sear Station Review
The biggest drawback of pellet grills , specifically in the lower of the price ranges is that they cannot get very high in temperature to do any serious grilling. The camp chef people have indeed chosen to throw away the idea of trying to get the temperature of the grill hotter and have attached the unit with a sear burner that is gas powered at its side.
So basically it now becomes a small gas grill specifically mounted on a full sized pellet grill. Commonly I don’t favor these types of contour but if you really are into grilling and barbecuing you are already pondering about reverse searing, which is the real reason why a grill is designed for.
Slowing smoking foods of your choice on the pellet side and then finishing them fast and hot over a sear burner. Gone are the days of waiting for the pellet cooker to reach a high enough temperature (which I’m sure it probably can’t ).
As an answer to an age old – problem, there is indeed a clever solution.
HomComfort PG30 Review
If you ever thought, is there a product not made in china then HomComfort from the United States Stove Company is the one I would say. The construction of the grill is really good, but at the end of the road, it is a fairly a standard type pelleting cooker.
Every bit is as good as most grills on this list but because it’s made in the United States is one of the biggest selling points In every other way the functions are pretty similar to a typical pellet griller in its price range.
Smoke Daddy Pellet Pro 680 Review
From the makers of Smoke Daddy, comes Pellet Pro, an absolute garage started company that started making list of smoke generators and aftermarket accessories.
Their backdrop is mostly in wood pellets, so it was just time can tell they started producing pellet grills. In terms of proprietary control they are excellent and with a classic pellet grill design, it has very good technological functions.
I would say do take a look at this unit in the lower of the price ranges. Its one of the least expensive units on the market worth buying.
Traeger Lil Tex Elite 22 Review
World’s top selling grill for about $700 also being one of the least costly pellet grills. The real problem here is that its less than 100 pounds, making it one of the lightest full scale pellet grills ( It’s not really a drawback from its abilities though).
Expanding from being the inventor of the pellet grill ( Traeger has elapsed through a few hands over the years), this is one of the classic units out there. Capable but limited controller.
The body doesn’t hold as much heat because of the thin structure, one of the reasons why it doesn’t score high on our list.
Pit Boss 700SC Review
From the second largest maker of pellet grills from Danson comes The Pit Boss pellet. This unit is another inexpensive but another classic pellet grill.
It costs the same as the in demand Traeger Lil Tex and does all things that a grill can do. The only difference between the two of the units is that the Traeger can be bought almost everywhere.
It comes with a cooking space of about 770 sq. inch making it a gigantic capacity smoker. Attached to it are full bottom and top pro racks, so you have plenty of cooking space for your favorite foods.
The grill is very heavy duty as its made of a very heavy 14 gauge steel, also has a heat and pan reflector with a heavy drip. Also it has porcelain coated grill racks.
The temperature range of the grilling on this particular grill goes from 160 to 450°F and is usually adjusted in 5° increments. It has a meat probe connecting to the controller and the temperature maintains within 5°.
Craftsmanship is something that people admire in this pellet smoker, and also comment that it has one of the best visage for the price. It also comes with 120 lbs of Lumberjack pellet brands and a cover for the grill, so that a plus!
