I own a Green Mountain Daniel Boone model and could not be happier. It cooks the food with a nice clean smoked flavor The smoke flavor can be adjusted by lowering the temp and cooking slow, or mixing in stronger flavor wood pellets. The temp. control makes it fool proof to hit your mark when cooking. I can slow cook at 150 or 225, or cook a pizza at 500 Made A Prime Rib Started at 450 for 10 minutes then lowed it to 190. Put the built in meat probe in and cooked to 128. It was perfect. And by the way it was below 25 degrees outside at the time. The thermal blanket allowed me to cook outside all winter Most pellet grills are not capable of getting a strong smoke flavor. If that is what you are looking for I purchased an A-Mazing -Smoke tube for when I want to add a strong smoke flavor.
