Enjoying a good BBQ cannot be tastier and healthier with the help of Grills, grills are conventional cooking tools that help reduce fats from food/meat because of the excess fat drips off the grates with the help of heat from the smoke unlike frying that the fat is reabsorbed by the meat in the pan.
Green mountain grills and Traeger grills are not your conventional grills; they are more than grills. They are called pellets grills, unlike traditional grills, that use charcoal as a source of heat. These grills use tiny wood pellets and are 100% wood; the wood goes into the hopper at the side of the grill it feeds into a fire pit and from the middle of the grill it lights on fire and smokes inside the chamber of the grill which comes out from a little chimney at the side.
Technically, this grill uses this small pellets as fuel and the pellets last four to 5 smoking sessions per pellets bag. They can bake, grill and smoke, these two pellet grills are the best in the market, and above the standard, they come with amazing utilities that is why we have brought them head to head for a general review to see which is best.
