Heating pellets are usually softwood. Sometimes the hardwood ones are really green wood with a lot of resin. Both can be most unpleasant for cooking.

I have the Pitboss 820 FBC (Costco) that I bought two years ago or so. Happy with it, doesn't get as searing hot as charcoal/propane, tastes better than propane, easier to operate than charcoal.

For standard stuff like burgers/steaks etc. I just crank up the heat. For chicken, I usually do 300-350, depending on intensity of smoke flavour that I want. I do a lot of beef ribs on there as well which are dead simple on a pellet grill. Literally set it and check in once an hour to spritz, and that's it.

I've also done whole bone-in leg of lamb, spatchcock chicken, kebabs. Everything comes out fantastic.

Note: Pitboss has the flame broiler option where the heat shield opens up to reveal the flames. This can give you pretty nice grill marks, so it is still possible to achieve the nice, crispy, seared steaks. Only downside is that the area is pretty small and can only do 1-2 steaks at a time, which is fine by me.

I mean... it sounds like you want something fast like a grill.
A pellet (IMO) doesn't make a good grill. It's only really an idiot proof smoker.

Unless I'm reading it wrong.
Also who else uses your outdoor cooking equipment?

I broke down and got it. Looks like it's definitely going to be bigger than I wanted. Half the price of the GMG DC though.

I think you'll be pleasantly surprised. I am really enjoying it VS propane and charcoal just because it is so much easier.

Back up to $29.98.
However, $20 sign was still up at around noon today, and cashier adjusted the price no problem.
Marlborough is now showing $18.50 on stocktrack, and Westbrook @ $20.

$26.99 at my Costco. Bought a single bag for now. Still no charcoal, on 2 months.

Nothing at Walmart and Canadian Tire only had very small bags at more dinero.

BassPro's website is the US one - so that is in US$ with shipping to USA. I don't think that's the Canadian price..... You can order online from Basspro's website, but delivery will be massive on such heavy items.

Same price in Canada. I've read some reviews and went with the more expensive traeger.
