Why every backyard needs a Pellet Grill!

Oh No…I forgot about dinner!

As busy working parents, this has not been the first or the last time I will ever say that! You feel me….burnt pizza, burnt grilled cheese or in Bob’s case…the grill is on fire.

Thankfully, with the ease of our Green Mountain pellet grill, that’s no longer a worry. Pellet grills allow you to have the “set it and forget it” mentality. Pellets create moisture to prevent your food from becoming dried out. So if you run late or are busy playing ball, you don’t have to worry about ruining your dinner.

Do you like a little smokey taste to your food?

If so, you’re in luck! The nice thing about pellet grills is that you can do quick meals for those busy ball nights or “low and slow” for that added smokey flavor. Now, Im not one who LOVES a lot of smoke taste (although there are some who do) but it adds just enough flavor to satisfy my taste buds.

Make sure to look for that nice smoke ring when you cut into your meat and witness all that your days patience has accomplished! It’s also a great way to create Jerky! Everyone loves a good batch of beef jerky or deer jerky or goose jerky…ok ill stop!

Excuse me, but is it hot in here?

Heating up my house is the LAST thing that I want to do on a warm summer night. Between kids coming in and out of the house (over and over and over again), sunlight beaming in and just being plain hot, the last thing I want to do is add to it by warming up my oven. Anyone who knows me knows I like to be cold!

Even though my kids are great eaters and love to have meat off the grill…they are kids. They want cheesy, noodle filled creations. BONUS, pellet grills can create that too!

Pellet grills use indirect heat and fans to create a convection type oven. I create my casseroles as normal, turn the grill up to the oven temp (350 degrees or 375 degrees), then bake as normal! Same gooey greatness, added smoke taste and without the added heat to your home!

Sorry, but the maid is out for the day…

That darn maid of mine…she never seems to come around near enough πŸ˜‰ (that’s because she doesn’t exist). No worries, pellet grills, specifically green mountain grills are super easy to maintain. No excessive clean up that you may experience with charcoal grills. Use a simple grate cleaner and occasionally vacuum out the fire pot and you’re set! Simple, right?

I wish to keep my eyebrows, thank you…

Number one reason that I NEVER used to grill on our gas grill…I was afraid it was going to explode. The thought of all that gas flowing through there and then adding fire was enough to make me not even go near it. I could never remember, lid open or was it lid closed? So, we would have to wait until 6:30 at night before we could begin supper when Bob got home.

Now, Im a grilling fool! Pellet grills are so easy to start that my kids can do it (they do get hot over time, so be careful!). Pellet grills use hardwood, kill dried wood that never touches the floor and is held together with their natural lignin (no glues). Cooking over hardwood gives you great taste, versatility and consistency. Yes, charcoal does taste great but can be difficult to maintain your heat in order to achieve your desired BBQ meat!

So the next time you are in the market for a new grill, give pellet grills a thought! Not only will you not regret the decision, you are also helping support a small business owner with Green Mountain…like my dad πŸ˜‰

  1. These grills are amazing! You can literally do anything on them from cookies to pizza to hard boiled eggs and everything in between! I’ve done many overnight cooks and not worried about the grill while I sleep, you can’t do that with a gas or charcoal!
