How to Use a Pellet Grill
Fill the hopper with pellets. Plug it in. Turn it on. Set the temp. Grill your favorite meal.
Seriously, it’s that simple.
You don’t need matches or lighters or a torch. There is a stick burner deep inside the grill that lights the pellets for you, once you push the on button.
You don’t need to monitor the vents to control the temp. Once you set the digital temperature, the grill magically adjusts everything for you. Okay it’s not magic, it’s engineering, but it’s still really damn awesome.
I can set the grill to 325 and bake a loaf of bread, just like I would in an oven. I can set the grill to 250, throw on a pork butt and know that it will still be running at 250 six hours later. Or I can crank the heat to 500 and grill a thick cowboy ribeye. (I’ll share those recipe experiments with you in a bit)
The Pellet-Q450™ comes with two grill probes – a built-in probe that measures the internal temp of the grill, and a meat probe that plugs into the digital control panel.
