Re: Best Pellet Grill and Smoker
Interesting first question on an archery site. You might check Pelletfan.com. There are a lot of product discussions over there and there are subforums for all the major products.
I am assuming you are talking about an outside pellet grill, or smoker. I am unaware of pellet grills that work in the kitchen, though, I know about pellet heaters.
I am using a GMG Daniel Boone with the Wifi option. It is an excellent, full featured grill at a reasonable price. It does all the basics that you need from a pellet grill. It is available in both wifi and non wifi options.
Some of the more expensive grills may be better at searing, but I have other grills for that. I don't need to crank up my pellet grill to searing temperatures.
GMG has excellent customer service. I encountered some trouble with controller boards and they quickly sent out new ones. I have had no problems for quite awhile. I think they have worked the bugs out of them.
I have been using my pellet grill for almost 2 years now and cook on it 3 to 4 times a week, year around. I would say that I have put mine through the acid test.
The small GMG Davy Crocket continues to show up on best pellet grill lists. It is sized for a small family and is portable for tailgating. The Daniel Boone is the mid sized grill and would handle a family of 5 quite well. They have a larger Jim Bowie which is probably too large for your needs.
I am just starting to cook some chicken thighs now. They turn out really good on the pellet smoker. I will cook then at 250 to an internal temperature of around 160 and then crank it up to 300 to get them to about 190.
