As the cooler weather approaches, BBQ aficionados will likely lament the changing of the seasons, as the approach of autumn means we are nearing the end of the grilling season.
However, as with anything purchased out of season (such as Halloween candy in November), it means a steep drop in prices for grills. Those who consider themselves grill masters may be interested in purchasing a new unit for the upcoming season.
They may even want to pick one up now and throw one final backyard BBQ for their friends and family to christen it. The GMG Davey Crocket stainless steel model would make a great addition to any pit master’s arsenal.
Why Wood Pellets?
Unlike old-school grills that burn charcoal or the slightly more modern propane grills, wood pellet grills are much more precise—you can monitor the temperature much more precisely and they automatically feed pellets through an electric auger to ensure the temperature stays constant, they heat the food more evenly, and they provide a smokey flavor with hints of hickory, cherry, or pecan.
Why Davey Crocket?
Following the tradition of naming their grills after explorers, Green Mountain Grills’ Davey Crocket model might not be as big as other models on the market, but its size—only 68 lbs.–means it’s slightly more versatile than those larger models.
You can use it to cook for your family and friends at home, pack it into the RV with the rest of the family and take it camping with you, or even stow it in the trunk of your car to bring it tailgating with you (great timing since the NFL season is starting up).
A broad temperature range—150F to 550F—means you can choose to cook your meat low and slow, or high and fast (perfect for grill masters who are patient and willing to wait for the perfect smoke, as well as those who get a little hangry and want their food ASAP.).
It also allows you to monitor the temperature in five-degree increments for a more precise cooking method.
Another great feature of the Davey Crocket model is it’s WiFi enabled, which means you can connect it to your smart phone and control it from the couch (it works with both iOS and Android devices)!
It’s also very versatile, and it can operate on 12V or 120AC which means you can use it in pretty much any environment.
It also has several accessories including Open flame technology grease trays.
