Pellet Grills offer some serious cooking potential. But can they compete with the beloved gas and charcoal grills?
Previously, pellet grills were much to be desired. Originally invented in the ’80s in America, the pellet grill was ahead of its time yet was dismissed. However, times have changed.
A pellet grill is traditionally powered by electricity and is fuelled by wood pellets, natural or flavoured. An Auger pushes the pellets into the firepot beneath the grates. This is where a temperature gauge and fan work together to maintain a stable heat and a particular temperature.
Back in the ’80s, pellet grills didn’t seriously threaten the dominance of the traditional gas and charcoal grills.
Those days are gone. And here’s why:
Notable Fuel Efficiency
One bag of wood pellets roughly serves 50 hours of cooking time when cooking at smoking temperatures. Whereas a propane gas grill will see you through 20 hours of cooking time, even when cooking on lower heats. Charcoal grills are even less efficient compared to pellet grills.
Wood pellets also offer eco-friendlier cooking, smoking and grilling. Pellet grills could certainly be the future of outdoor cooking.
Everyone loves a BBQ, the aroma, the food, the atmosphere. However, very few enjoy the difficulties which come with preparing the perfect BBQ.
With pellet grills, smoking has never been so simple. No longer do keen outdoor cooks have to endure the pain of waiting for the perfect conditions and monitoring airflow, internal temperatures, and ambient temperatures.
With pellet grills, you can enjoy meats and vegetables which are smoked to perfection with minimal effort.
Smart Cooking Precision
Despite the analogue nature of grilling and cooking food outdoors on a fire, a bit of precision and control can truly evolve a grill-up.
The Big Horn Pellet Grill’s LCD display displays the current temperature of the grill, assisting you to achieve the ideal temperature for your dish.
Lifestyle’s Big Horn also displays the set temperature as well as the selected smoking preset.
Respectable Grilling Power
The key grilling difference between gas and pellet grills are the mode of heat. Traditional gas BBQs utilise direct heat, whereas a pellet grills cook with indirect heat.
Wood pellet grills can’t achieve super searing temperatures of 800°C and can’t char at the speed of their predecessors. However, the Big Horn is a capable grill and can take on the heat of a great British summer BBQ.
Pellet grills excel in versatility and quality of cook, smoke and grill. With the Big Horn, a pleasant cook Is almost guaranteed. Start to finish.
