How Pellet Grills Work

Pellets are fed from a hoppper into a burn pot. As the burn pot ignites, the pellets burn. Heat then carries through the home via convection (air driven) means, thus allowing air flow and a blend of warm and cool air to maintain steady, even burn temperatures. A heat exchanger separates the smoke fumes from the warm air, thereby warming the room without smoking everyone out.

Pellet grills work in much the same way, albeit with the heat exchanger removed so that the smoke produced by the burning wood pellets bathes your food in its goodness and helps render the barbecue product you’re after.

How Pellet Varieties Flavor Your Food

Something you may not have read in other Pellet grill reviews is that there are two key concerns: flavor and fuel consumption. As previously stated, pellet smokers are not known for producing a strong smoke flavor, no matter what pellets you use. Though, some brands can be more pronounced than others. Hardwood pellets provide longer overall burn times per pound than fruit wood pellets. 100 percent fruit wood pellets will also be more expensive on average.

So, if you want to do a pellet smoker cook using 100 percent cherry wood pellets, you’re going to use more fuel than you would with a cherry/hardwood blend, and it’s going to cost you more as well on average.

One comment I see a lot in various forums like is that you want as much efficiency as you can get. As with lump charcoal, this means burning as clean of a cook as you can with as little ash as possible. Different pellet mixes will produce differences in what you get in this area, and the cooker you’re using will dictate this to some degree as well.

MRW1218 says:

Bought the Yoder smoker since you recommended it. Used it on July 4th and everything turned out great. I’ll definitely get a lot of use out of this grill. Also, I found a place not too far from me that sells the Cookingpellets mix for $23 a bag. Can’t go wrong!

Nice video, very helpful!

Daniel Rodriguez says:

Hi, what’s your thoughts on Louisiana grills?

chi1abb says:

Great information. I don’t have a lot of money to spend but want a pellet grill. I also live in a townhouse with a smaller attached deck. I’m looking at the Pit Boss Deluxe 440. It’s moderately priced in comparison to others like Traeger and Rec Tec. Also, for $449 it gives me a little more cooking space, a top removable rack and a side serving tray. Similarly priced competitors don’t offer those extras. Is this a reputable brand and model or should I completely avoid it?

chico dade says:

Do you know if the camp chef PG series uses a PID controller? They mention a digital chip in their product description but I’m not sure what that means. Is a PID controller really necessary?

David Lemelin says:

Trying to figure out which grill to buy.  Wondering what your thoughts are on Louisiana LG grills vs. the Traeger. can’t get a Rec Tec in Alaska.  The shipping kills me, over $400.00 in shipping

Chris Anderson says:

Great video Kevin!

Randall Howell says:

If you are looking to get a Traeger, check your local Costco. I’ve looked around and that is were you will find the best price. They all cook the same so for it comes down to price.
