BBQ Competition and Pellet Grill

Cook Shack is the most used competition pellet grill in the United States. There is a mixture of other pellet grills out there. Cook Shack has a smaller thin unit that fits in a trailer and the exhaust can be put out through the wall.  Should a pellet cooker be used in competition. By all means. Its heat source is wood. Its smoke is produced by wood.  It gives out some of the best flavor that a cooker can put out.  You still have to trim, inject, season, cook correctly and present your competition categories.  

 



 

Pellet cooker have to be cleaned periodically. Where the eye makes the fire has to be cleaned of all dust and pellets after several cooks. The auger on a pellet grill can freeze up if to much wood/dust gets into the auger. Clean the auger out and it will resume working.Pellet Smokers Grills are the wave of the future. Buy a good Pellet Smoker/Grill and get rid of your stove in your house. That is right it can replace the regular stove you have. If our nation wants to switch from electric to wood, pellet grills is the way to go. Pellet grills plug into a wall and have a hot eye in them. An auger moves the pellet to the eye. The eye is hot enough to burn the pellet and it maintains a perfect temperature. Many of the grills have a cold smoke setting where you can regulate the amount of smoke you want for cold smoking meat. These grills work as good as any major type cooking appliance and are huge winners on the BBQ Circuit. 

Pellet Smokers

 

They start up fast and easy. Why use an electric stove that has potentially coal generating the electric. Reduce your electric use and move to wood. People are heating their houses with this process in furnaces that burn wood pellets. There is a difference between heat producing pellets for your house and cooking pellets. Cooking pellets are made from raw wood direct from trees. Apple, Pecan, Oak, and Hickory are some of the flavors. Heating Pellets for your house are made from pallets and reprocessed wood from cabinet makers.

Make sure you know what type of pellets your buying before your put them in your pellet cooker.

Pellet Smokers are built for easy clean up. Cook Shack’s PG 500 come apart easily and the inside is removable for the most part. Making clean up a breeze. If you like to grill out every night and cook your regular meals on a smoker buy a Fast Eddie PG 500 by Cook Shack First.

Royall Grills

Royall Grills is manufactured by a furnace company. They know about engineering a wood fire system to burn pellets.  Royall Grills was engineered by a frustrated husband who wanted to come up with a better cooking system.

Rolled onto the competition circuit and won a Reserve Grand by Swine Assassins who never even seen one before. Swine Assassins went on to almost win the KCBS that year.

Royall is a high quality cooker. Second to none. I’ve know several BBQ Cooks who loved the Royall because of its wide surface to cook on.  They now have an insulated model that is a huge jump in technology.6408699_orig  Instead of having to deal with charcoal in a gravity flow. Royall 5000 uses pellets that are cleaner to handle and cleaner to burn with with very little ash, no mess.  Royall should be your first choice in buying a pellet grill because they are made in America with the highest quality parts.

Memphis Wood Fired Grills





Memphis Grills is a great backyard grill.  I have known a couple teams who had a Memphis Wood Fired Grill in a BBQ Competition and have done well. There is one team that is burning up KCBS who is using a Memphis Grill. They perform admirably. grill-elite

Memphis has a pellet shoots that are in the back of the grill so it has the appearance of a gas grill.  It is a slick way of not having the pellet box off to the side and the control is on the shelf side. It hides it well.  There is a dealer in Augusta Georgia, Fireside Outdoor Kitchens and Grills that swears by them and he is an honest man.  These pellet grills can get as high as 700 degrees Fahrenheit.  Buy a Memphis Grill for your back yard and enjoy a great cooker for years to come. Check out their resume:

Louisiana Grills

Louisiana Grills have come out of the Bayou and have taken over the market. These grills are an engineering wonder. Get a Louisiana and get a lifetime of great cooking, Move your electric stove out and cook on a Louisiana!

Mak Grills

Mak Grills is a great grill. I once saw one in Las Vegas with a team that competed at The Rib Throwdown at the ACM Country Music Awards.  Mak is a top of the line Pellet Smoker that has proven itself over and over again. Pellet Smokers

Mak is the only other company that has the insulated cookers like Royall. Pellet Smokers

Mak has a great pellet smoker. The quailty is there. Buy a Mak Grill.

These pellet smokers grills in the description I would recommend and give the BBQSuperStars Guarantee on. None of the others.  Pellet Grills can break down.  The auger that brings the pellets in, the eye that burns the wood.  The temperature probe in the cooker and get knocked off or damaged by the exchange of BBQ in and out of the grill.  These four listed above have less problems. Cook Shack is the best ever made, Royall and Yoder are even in a clear second.  When buying a pellet cooker avoid those countries that build in China.  Do your homework even on the grills listed.  China made pellet grills have a lot of problems.
