Compare Our Pellet Grills
There are a lot of benefits to pellet grills, but depending on your needs, they may not be the best choice of grill for you. Unlike stock grills you find at “big box” stores, the pellet grills at LanChester are of the highest quality, guaranteeing you get to choose from some of the best products on the market. If you’re torn between a wood pellet or gas grill, read our list of pros and cons on pellet grills to see if it will be a good fit for your preferred grilling methods.
Constant Cooking Temperature
Through convection heating, pellet grills maintain a constant cooking temperature. Convection makes it possible to bake, smoke, or roast on a pellet grill, all in addition to your standard searing and BBQ cooking.
Food-grade wood pellets are made from hardwoods that produce an array of smoky flavors from apple and oak to maple, pecan, or cherry. Pellet grills may be the perfect new BBQ grill for your outdoor patio area.
Due to how wood pellets are made, they burn much more of their mass than a typical wood log burns. As a result, they’re a more efficient energy source for grilling that uses less fuel in the long run.
Though the pellet grill was invented in 1985, patents restricted the development of the technology until the patent expired in 2006. Pellet grills are just now starting to receive serious attention, and competition is heating up – driving serious advances in technological capabilities of pellet grills. LanChester carries the most technologically advanced pellet grills currently available.
Box Store Grills:
Many Can’t Reach High Temperatures
Most pellet grills are unable to reach temperatures higher than 450 degrees Fahrenheit. A temperature of 700 degrees or higher is generally necessary to quickly sear steaks and other meats.
Clean Up Can Be a Chore
While a pellet grill cleans up easier than many charcoal grills, wood pellets still produce ash that must be removed after cooking is complete.
Technology is Not As Developed
As we already mentioned, pellet grills are only recently starting to see modern upgrades. We’ll likely see this technology evolve over the next few years, but for now, you won’t find nearly as many options available in box stores as you will for other types of backyard grills.
