Why Pellet Grilling? Meet Green Mountain Grills

Looking for a new grill can be overwhelming, especially when there are so many brands and types of grills to choose from. If you’re looking for something that brings more flavour than a gas barbecue without the mess and fuss of charcoal grilling, you should check out pellet grills, such as our selection from Green Mountain Grills (GMG)! In this article, we will briefly discuss the advantages of GMG pellet grills, including the taste benefits of pellet grilling, smart control features, advanced heat distribution capabilities, and GMG’s signature dual fan system. 

A Matter Of Taste

Firstly, let’s talk about the taste benefits of pellet grilling. Pellet grills use wood pellets as their fuel source, which adds a robust, smoky flavour to your food. The pellets come in a variety of wood types, such as hickory, mesquite, apple, and cherry, which can be used to achieve different flavours. This makes pellet grilling a popular choice for those who want that classic char flavour in their meat, fish, or vegetables. While there are hacks to make your gas grill somewhat imitate the results of a smoker, it is tricky and inconsistent: nothing delivers quality results as consistently and easily as a pellet grill!

All The Flavour, None Of The Fuss

We already know why pellet grilling beats gas BBQing. But what’s its main advantage over charcoal BBQ? Two words: consistency and ease.
While coals require maintenance and frequent checks (not to mention the practice it takes to really control temperature), pellet grilling allows you to just set the temperature and walk away. That’s especially convenient if you’re smoking large cuts of meat over a long period of time. With reliable temperature maintenance, you get consistently delicious results!

Additionally, pellet grills create less ash and are generally less messy than charcoal.

Couch Control

Next, let’s discuss the smart control feature of Green Mountain Grills. GMG grills come with a digital controller that allows you to set and maintain the temperature of your grill with precision. This is especially useful for long, slow cooks that require a consistent temperature. The controller also allows you to adjust the temperature remotely via Wi-Fi so that you can keep an eye on your grill from the comfort of your couch. Beats standing over your BBQ in the rain, eh?
This smart control feature makes GMG grills a great choice for those who want to take the guesswork out of grilling.

Heat Harmony

Heat distribution is another advantage of GMG grills. Their design allows for even heat distribution throughout the cooking area. This means your food will be cooked evenly, no matter where it is placed on the grill. The even heat distribution also means that you can cook multiple items at once without worrying about hot spots or cold spots.

Two Fans Are Better Than One

We’re a fan of GMG’s dual fan system! The dual fan system allows for better air circulation and temperature control. One fan is used to provide oxygen to the fire, while the other fan circulates the hot air around the cooking area. This results in a more consistent cooking temperature and a faster cooking time. The dual fan system also helps to reduce the amount of smoke that is produced during the cooking process, making it a cleaner option for grilling.

Fair Warning!

  1. Despite the many advantages of pellet cooking, there are 2 factors to keep in mind before rushing over to The Fireplace Center & Patio Shop to pick up your new grill:
    Pellet grills require an electrical outlet, as several key parts run on electricity (such as the auger’s motor, the ignition, and the temperature controller). While this poses no problem for most backyard settings, you will have to plan for a generator, vehicle adapter, or electrical hookup if you’re tailgating or camping.
  2. While pellet fuel brings a variety of flavour-enhancing advantages, it’s not as widely/easily accessible as charcoal or propane tanks. The good news is that you can always find an assortment of GMG pellet fuel at The Fireplace Center & Patio Shop!

In conclusion, GMG pellet grills offer a variety of advantages for those who are looking for a high-quality grill. The taste benefits of pellet grilling, smart control, superior heat distribution, and the dual fan system are all features that make GMG grills stand out from the rest.
