Whether you are new to the scene or have been grilling forever, everyone has a preference when it comes to grilling food. From gas grills to charcoal grills to wood pellet grills, grilling should be taken seriously. Many grillers will argue passionately about the pros and cons of each method.
As a chef and lover of flavorful foods, I too am quite passionate when it comes to my grilling technique. After years of trying different grills and experimenting with different techniques, I think the winner is clear: Pellet grills.
Wood-pellet grills were introduced over 20 years ago. They're electric which means no fluids, no lighters, and no gas. A pellet grill is powered by food grade wood pellets. Unlike charcoal grills, which take up to 30 minutes or more to heat up, wood pellet grills can give off an even heat quite quickly. And, unlike propane grills which heat up quickly but lack flavor, foods cooked on pellet grills are rich in smokiness and succulence.
Some pellet grills even come with a thermostat so that you can actually set the exact temperature. It's an obvious plus when compared to charcoal grills and gas grills.
Best of all, with a pellet grill, you can "smoke" your food at a very low temperature. This gives you a huge range of options when it comes to the types of meals you can prepare with your grill.
Pellet grills also give you the option of playing with different types of wood, all of which give off a unique smoke and flavor. There is a great deal of variety wood pellets available.
Along with the ease and variety that a pellet grill affords you, pellet grills might actually be healthier for you! The National Cancer Institute has stated that certain methods of cooking meat can increase one's risk of cancer. Wood pellet grilling could potentially have a lower risk of cancer when compared to other forms of grilling.
Not only are pellet grills efficient, easy to use, and flavorful, they are also cost-effective and don't involve potentially dangerous chemicals like propane. For more information on pellet grills, contact Northeast Distribution.
