What Are Pellet Grills?

If you’re coming into the topic completely unaware of what these grills are and what they can do, start here. The “pellet” in pellet grill refers to the type of fuel the grill uses, as is the case with a charcoal grill or a gas grill. The grill generates flame and heat by igniting hard or soft woods that have been compressed down into small pellets, which are stored in a hopper on the side of the grill.

A pellet grill is controlled with a simple digital input, and utilizes an electricity-fed system to move pellets from the hopper into the fire pot, where the pellets will ignite. Because of the automation of the pellet feed, you’re left with a grill that is super simple to operate, and one that keeps even, consistent temperatures.

What Are the Advantages to Cooking with a Pellet Grill?

Sheer Versatility.

Pellet grills can be used to grill foods, smoke meats, and can even be used to bake when needed, or if desired. Add in that pellets come in a hugely diverse range of wood types, each featuring a unique flavor and smoke, and you have a grill that can cover a wide range of tastes and dishes.

You can sear a steak in 8 to 10 minutes or smoke a brisket for 12 hours.  The flexibility of a pellet grill is unmatched.


Simple digital settings, automated feed, and weather shielding to prevent flare ups all make pellet grills stress-free and fun to cook with.

Many pellet grills now have an awesome Wi-Fi feature. This is fantastic for when you are entertaining guests and don’t want to stand vigil at the grill. You can follow along on your smartphone when you’re sitting with friends and family.  You can set timers and you can start the grill while not having to leave your guests. Pellet grills today offer a new generation of grilling and convenience.

Consistent Cooking Heat.

Pellet grills can maintain temperatures anywhere from 150 degrees to 600, and will hold closely to that number regardless of rain, shine, or high winds. This makes them an excellent choice for all four seasons on Cape Cod, allowing a grill cook to plan precise cook times with little to no variance.

Cost Efficiency.

Because of how well the pellet grill/pellet smoker manages fuel use and shields the cooking chamber from winds, fuel efficiency in these grills is very high.

Who is a Pellet Grill Best Suited For?

No one who understands grills will tell you that any type of grill is objectively better than any other. As is the case with any cooking appliance, it’s all about what works best for you and your needs. This said, pellet grills have a lot of benefits to offer, and are an effective grilling tool whether you’re looking to feed family and friends, or you need a dependable grill at your local Cape Cod home.

Important considerations to keep in mind are that pellet grills, generally speaking, tend to be slightly pricier than more widely available options like charcoal grills. However, pellet grills last substantially longer, and are much simpler and safer to operate.
