When it comes to choosing a grill or a smoker, there are so many options that it can be difficult to know what the best choice is for you. If you go with one system, are you going to regret the benefits of the other that you decided against? Today, we’re here to help you narrow down your options by giving you some benefits of using a wood pellet system over your standard grill.
Understanding the Difference Between Charcoal & Wood Pellets
Conventional smokers use charcoal as fuel, which means that there can be a lot of smoke. However, this cooking process lends itself to unmatched flavor that charcoal is known for. On the other hand, a wood pellet system helps you cook food with less smoke while still producing enhanced flavor.
Cut Down on Cooking Time with Pellets
Wood pellet smokers work by adding wood pellets to fuel the fire. Pre-heating the grill is a matter of adding the pellets and starting the flame. Wood fire pellet smokers and grills pre-heat quickly and can help save time spent cooking dinner. If you’re looking for a time-saving alternative to a charcoal grill, but still enjoy the rich smoked flavor, a pellet smoker is probably for you.
Easily Regulate Temperatures with a Wood Pellet System
Aside from cutting down on cooking time, you can also help regulate your cooking temperatures with a pellet system. Whether you are wanting to smoke low and slow, or sear with high heat, you can moderate temperatures easier with wood pellets than you can with charcoal.
Versatility and Variety of Wood Pellet Smokers
Pellet smokers and grills allow for lots of versatility when cooking. As we touched on earlier, you can easily regulate the cooking temperatures while using a pellet system. This allows you to slowly smoke foods for your backyard barbecue party, or make quick last-minute dinners. Pellet smokers offer convenient cooking options while still allowing enough flexibility to up your barbecue game every now and then.
Many of our grills and smokers are available with a wood pellet system. The benefit to using a wood pellet system on a smoker over a wood pellet grill is that you can still use charcoal easily. The wood pellet system is a great addition because you can have the best of both worlds! When you want to smoke low and slow with charcoal, you can still do so with ease. However, by adding a pellet system, you’re able to regulate temperatures much easier than with charcoal. Ready to get your hands on your own?
