Built-In Pellet Grills: Memphis Pro vs. Louisiana Estate Series

How Pellet Grills Work

Ever wanted to create your own BBQ style smoked ribs or a delicious slow-cooked brisket, but don’t know where to start? Using a great pellet grill makes it a breeze to achieve that great taste to impress friends and family. Pellet grills are relatively new to the grilling industry and give the user necessary tools to be able to smoke whatever they like with the simple push of a button to control your grill temperature. Wood pellets use an auger to move the pellets from a hopper to a fire-pot that ignites the pellets creating a fire, then using a fan to create convection heat effect to evenly cook the food and add smoky flavor.
