Great price, great grill


Pros: Accurate temperature control

Cons: Unpredictable performance in cold weather, watch out for sticky dribble from the stack cover.

$399 on sale at Menards! I had been looking at Traegers, but didn't want to pay twice the price. I've used this grill a couple dozen times singe getting it at Christmas '2015. In cold weather it struggles to maintain even temperature, but I've had problems in winter with every grill I've owned. Smoking mode works great in Spring/Summer weather but you have to scope out how to use the "P" mode. There should be a selector switch instead of a button. The enameled grids are easy to clean and are holding up well.   Points to note: Keep the trough where the grease collects to go into the bucket clean.

Great unit


Pros: Seems well built, works great, easy to use, holds temp. Great bang for the buck

Cons: Built in thermo was out, But use a probe system anyway

  I started out on a friends Traegar at work and made the decision to get a pellet smoker, I researched for awhile and was leaning towards the Green Mountain Grill line, I went and checked them out but hesitated due to the price point $1100+tax, Canadian dollar exchange is brutal. So i figured ok I'll think about it. I happened to be in Home Depot and Saw the Pit Boss for $699. So I checked out the line and reviews went back a few days later and we loaded it up. I really am enjoying this unit, Built well, solid, Works great and easy to use, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a pellet grill. 



Pros: I like the broiler feature

Cons: None so far

Bought this at Menards after returning a Traeger Texan to Costco. The Pitt Boss is a little smaller, has the broiler feature, has a upper cooking rack, has a shelf under the cook chamber  is $400 less money. All in all I'm optimistic this one is a keeper. › Smokers & More › Smokers › Pellet Smokers › Pit Boss Grills 71820 Wood Pellet Grill › Pit Boss Grills 71820 Wood Pellet Grill Reviews
