Default Pellet grille vs propane

I know they are completely different but wanted yalls thoughts if you could only have one.

Have never had a smoker of any kind and only had propane. It came to the end of its life when moving and looking at getting something. Don't want to spend $1k on a pellet grille wishing I had propane still and then have to spend another $1k on a propane grille. So if you could only have one or the other which would you go with and why. Thanks for the help.

Pellet grill. Can’t get good smoke flavor with gas, and the pellet grill can be used without smoke so it’s pretty much a gas grill

My 2* for what itís worth. It really depends on what you like to eat more of. If you like to cook brisket, ribs, chicken and smoke some tenderloin thatís what youíll get with the pellet grill. I have cooked pies, cold smoked cheese, and baked lots of bread in mine.

If you like grilling, burgers, steaks, chicken and whatnot then go for the propane grill.

Personally, I have a plain charcoal grill for the ďwhatnotsĒ that I spent very little on but use regularly and Iíve got a traeger that I got on sale and absolutely love. I enjoy something on the Traeger about once every two weeks or sooner and I enjoy something on the grill about once a week. If it were me, Iíd have both if you want the propane over the charcoal. A little Smokey lasts forever and takes up a small footprint. Itís the pellet grill that will take up space.

Always wanted to try a Traeger. A week ago my neighbor and I smoked a 25lb piggy we trapped. It was outstanding!

This is the best answer. Gas is good for grilling (Searing), and pellets are good for slow cooks/smoking. Also, my Traeger doesn't put out near enough smokey flavor. I could get my old gas smoker to make a much smokier flavor. We also have a charcoal grill and Traeger.

Why not a standard offset smoker? Then you have the large cooking chamber for charcoal grilling and the fire box for low-n-slow smoking.

I second what was said above. I love the RecTec for brisket, chicken, ribs, etc. Even did macaroni in there for superbowl. It's essentially an easy-bake oven for grown men (and women).

For searing steaks, warming sausage, or cooking burgers, I have an 18" Old Smokey that I bought on sale at HEB before last summer for $25. That sucker gets hot and stays that way plenty long enough. Found some 12" leg extenders and it makes it a lot more practical.

Best of both worlds. For those of us with limited space, at least.

EDIT to add a tip: If you get the pellet grill, spend an extra $20 for the Amaze-N smoke tube. It's a must.

For quick, everyday convenience and healthy eating.....gas grills are great.

For really good stuff......cook over hot mesquite.

Pellet grills are for liberal hipsters in skinny jeans.

As long as you do your research and are willing to spend some $$ a pellet grill will do it all.

The Pitts & Spitts pellet grills will get to 650į for searing or fast cooking pizzas and it will get down low enough to cold smoke and pretty much anything in between.

I would have to go gas for the convenience, you can get a really cheap smoker and have both. A primo ceramic grill covers it all, takes a few minutes to get the fire going.

Ö Or young conservatives limited to a 36sf, third floor balcony who were raised on mesquite-smoked BBQ, refuse to eat soggy, oven-baked chicken, and also enjoy the occasional pork or beef rib

Can't do that on the gas grill!

Pellet is my choice ..Pit Boss has a grilling area on some models..I'm pretty sure other brands do.....I had mine about a year and its the best thing I ever owned...I Burned up several Gas grills over years..Still own a Lyfe Tyme off set..48x24 with fire box gona give it to daughter....Its not been used since I got Pit Boss..
Best thing about Pellet is set it on TEMP which is usually low so you don't have to turn meat.Put meat on and walk away...Check now and then so you dont run out of pellets..Mine is smaller and pellets make it for 3or 4 hours ...Cuz got a bigger one its good for 7h or so....
I thought Pellets would be more expensive...But my gut feel they aint...cause by time you buy charcoal / lighter and or wood....its about same...If ya gather your own wood then of course its cheaper

and I aint BURNED nothing since I got pellet stove

I have a pit boss and use it for everything. You can flame broil on it as well. Its been a great investment. You can set it and walk away instead of tending a fire. I love a real smoker but the pit boss is pretty cool

It isn't the temp, its the indirect heat that keeps pellet smokers form being grills. Even Pitts and Spits has this issue, or they did last year when we ultimately bought our Traeger. Maybe they have invented some way of creating direct heat since then.

Now if you are throwing a cast iron pan into the smoker, letting that get to 650 (Which means taking the food that is smoking off, cranking the smoker way up for 20 min so it's hot enough, waiting for cast iron to then heat up, then yes, it can sear. But 90% of people don't do that.

Yep! The slide away cover on the convection tray opens up to sear over flame. Very handy. Been very pleased with it and at least half the price of some of the others.

try covering the smoke stack with foil. I have the traeger tailgator and I block the holes on top and get a lot more smoke flavor



per the original post, I have both and use the propane for burgers chicken and anything else I want to grill. use the pellet for smoking. I do use the pellet on as hot as it gets to do some things like country ribs and they have turned out good with a little smoke flavor, but not smoked

As others mentioned, what is your priority in using it. If you do mostly burgers, hot dogs and quick foods like that a gas grill might be better. The only thing i don't like about the pellet is the preheat time. Although it isn't that bad. I have a weber q for hot dogs and burgers.

That being said I would go for a pellet grill as I use it more for steaks and such.

I have a pellet grill, propane grill and a stick burner offset. Offset is only used for parties. Propane hasn't been used in 2 years. Get a pellet grill that can hit the high temps and call it a day. I can sear a steak at over 700 or slow smoke at under 200. Cant do that on propane. It's hard to even hit 600 on a propane grill.

How in the hell does hunting interfere with using a smoker? Lol. The pitt is always going at the lease. Much easier than grilling every meal.

The P&S has a slide over cover where you can open it up directly to the pot where the pellets are. You can get true searing with it.

How much do pellets cost? Is the fuel cost of a pellet smoker comparable to charcoal or propane?

I have a gas grill for burgers, a charcoal grill (Weber) for steaks and chicken, and a small vertical propane driven smoker for briskets and such. I use mesquite cut at my deer lease with the smoker.

I have a Green Mountain that I use for everything. I got rid of my propane grill after buying the Green Mountain. It cranks up to 500 degrees and with the use of grill grates you can get a great sear on steaks, chicken, pork chops or whatever else you want to grill. The grill grates are key though as they retain good heat. Much better flavor than propane grilling since you are using wood pellets. They don't add a lot when grilling but it's noticeable over propane. I also have the pizza attachment which runs $125 and provides direct heat to get the pizza stone up to 700-900 degrees or you can can also run your grill grates in the pizza oven attachment to get up to those higher temps.

It is a very versatile piece of equipment. I have no reason to ever own another gas grill. I am rarely trying to cook steaks or grill something when I'm smoking a brisket or other meats so I've never run into an issue of needing to take one off to do the other.

Youíll be happy. Youíll probably still want the propane grill so Iíd keep an eye out for a great deal. I still couldnít have just the Traeger, I really enjoy having both options for whenever I want a good steak, hard seared on both sides. But Iíve made some crazy good stuff on my Traeger that I could have never done on the grill. Also, when you get the smoker always be on the lookout for pellet deals, they come and go but Iíve learned the better the pellet, they burn slower and leave less dust (which clogs your firebox up). I like the lumberjack pellets and keep an eye out for deals on all the different woods. Post oak is my go to, but Iíve accumulated fruit woods and some great pecan. They all pair well together.
