Pros: Ease of use, Temperature control, Cooking space
Cons: needs access to electrical outlet, needs a means to secure plug when not in use
Forgive me if I write a lot of drivel, bu this is my first review of a product on this forum:
I had gotten a 12" A-maze-n tube and used it to smoke cheese last year (on my old grill), and absolutely fell in love with wood pellets. My neighbors begged me for whatever I was smoking. It was through this that I decided to get a pellet grill.
I picked this up in May of 2016, and have never been happier with a cooking device.
So nice to be able to control the temperature on a grill. I was sick to death of the awful "hot spots" on my old propane grill. No worries on this one! Very even heating. Did I mention that I love the temperature control?
It has so much space I made two racks of ribs, some chicken sausage and 4 ears of corn, with about 1/2 the available space.
It's easy to clean out the residual waste from the burnt pellets
I can empty the hopper and auger without having to burn anything
It's also really easy to clean and keep clean.
Using this grill I've made some amazing chicken and steaks, and for the first time, I made ribs that weren't completely burnt on the outside and raw near the bone.
Bonus point: My wife loves waking up from a weekend nap to the smell of grill working. Happy wife - Happy life.
It's an electrical device, and because the cord isn't too long, I need to have a really good extension cord available when I use it.
I live in an area with extreme weather, so covering it when not in use is important for me.
The plug is a bit awkward. I need to find a way to secure it when not in use.
