What is the best Pit Boss pellet grill?

That question is just as hard to answer as the question of what the best car model is.

It all depends on your size family, how many people you grill for, and the type of food you are cooking.

For a small family that does not host large outdoor cooking gatherings, the smaller 550 square-inch models might be a perfect choice.

For larger families or gatherings you might have to opt for the 1000 square-inch versions.

So, before buying a Pit Boss pellet grill ask yourself a few questions to decide what model you really need.

Too big will mean that you burn more pellets than necessary. Too small means that you can not cook that large turkey, you like to cook.

Pit Boss Pellet Grill Reviews – My Opinion

While I was doing my usual research for this Pit Boss pellet grill review page I thought it would be an easy one.

Well, that was not the case. First of all, I found more models than I expected to find. Plus the ratings I found were a lot higher than I thought they would be.

I found some nice portable and tabletop models that I will review on their own page later.

If you like to see more brands before making up your mind you can have a look at the pellet grill smoker reviews page.

I found the question of how many watts does a Pit boss use and the answer is that they use 200 – 700 Watts during startup and after that, it will taper off to about 30 Watts.

If you think there is anything to add here for the Pit Boss pellet grills feel free to let me know.
