The Pit Boss Pellet Grill Review

As the summer comes to a close, BBQ aficionados are likely starting to think about throwing one final cookout before putting the grill away for the winter.

However, while this is a sad time for fans of enjoying their meals grilled over an open flame, it also means it’s a great time to get a new grill for next season.

If you are in the market for a new grill, but you’re looking for something that can produce that smokey flavor you might want to check out the Pit Boss 72700S Pellet Grill with Upgraded Cart.

Why Wood Pellets?

One of the great things about using wood pellets to grill your food, is it provides that smokey flavor that regular grills simply can’t produce.

Whether you’re cooking ribs, burgers and hot dogs, fish, steak, or even venison nothing beats the smokey flavor you get from a wood flame.

Pellet grills also cook food more evenly—similar to a conventional oven—and they produce less acrid smoke than a traditional grill.

For grill masters who hate to wait for their food to be done, pellet grills might be the best option due to the fact they can cook food faster and more evenly than traditional grills and allows for a better temperature monitoring system.

Pellet grills also offer a versatility that is sure to appeal to people who prefer to mix things up, rather than cooking the same three or four things every time they fire up the grill.

Pellet grills also take a lot of the guess work out of grilling; rather than monitoring the temperature and checking to see if the dial of your propane grill is working, pellet grills feed the pellets automatically with the use of an electric auger and maintain a more even temperature than a propane grill which cooks food by using a hot surface.


The Pit Boss Pellet Grill has a dual-rack cooking system that maximizes space by offering a 700 square inch cooking surface—you can load up 32 burgers on this thing.

It also has a broad temperature range from 180F to 500F, which means you can cook things low and slow, or fiery and fast—depending on what you’re making—which is aided by the dial-in digital control with LED readout.

The grill also has a flame broiler with a simple slide plate for direct and indirect flame grilling, and the convection system circulates air for a consistent temperature throughout the cooking chamber.

Made from a steel frame that features a powder-coat finish to resist high temperatures, the grill is under 150 lbs fully assembled (relatively light compared to other grills). the bottom shelf and side shelf, with tool hooks and bar handle provide extra space for all your grilling accessories.

It also includes a stainless-steel bottle opener, pellet cleanout door and removable grease trays, and four castor wheels for easier maneuverability.

The grill’s assembled dimensions are 22.05in x 43.11in x 26.00in—which makes it compact compared to some grills and doesn’t take up too much space.
