PELLET GRILLS VS.

TRADITIONAL GRILLS

Pellet Grill

Precise temp Set & forget 8-in-1 Pure smoky flavor Cooks evenly

PID temperature controller maintains precise temperatures.

“Set & forget” operation eliminates the need to babysit the grill.

Hardwood pellet cooking system infuses excellent wood-fired flavor.

8 cooking styles: sear, smoke, BBQ, roast, char-grill, braise, bake, and grill.

The convection heating process ensures even cooking while eliminating flareups.

Charcoal Grill

Hard to control temp Messy Cooks unevenly Flareups Requires tending

  • Temperature is tricky to control by adjusting the charcoal, the air flow, or both.
  • You must frequently check the temperature and add/remove briquettes as needed.
  • Different areas of the grill will be different temperatures.
  • Take time to light and get up to temperature; can be very messy.
  • Cooking food with direct heat causes uncontrolled flare-ups and you're more likely to burn it.
  • Gas Grill

    Not safe Imparts no flavor Tricky to control Burns food easily Cannot smoke

  • You’ll need to be very careful about the fire hazards associated with gas grills.
  • Gas is odorless and tasteless.You'll be missing out on that smoky flavor.
  • There is a learning process in getting a precise temperature.
  • The open flame will burn the surface of the food before the inside cooks.
  • Unable to smoke & not designed for cooking low and slow.
  • Electric Smoker

    Cannot grill Less smoky No smoke ring Drys food

  • You cannot grill on an electric smoker. The temperature won’t get hot enough.
  • You're going to miss that rich, smoky flavor that you would get from a pellet grill.
  • It's highly unlikely to get a nice bark and a smoke ring on an electric smoker.
  • A tendency to dry out food (water pan required).

    FAQS

    Know more about our 550B pellet grill with these Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

    Q

    Q What is the difference between 550A and 550B?

    There are three main differences.

    One is in the temperature controller. The 550A has a digital temperature controller, and the 550B features a PID controller for more precise temperature control.

    Secondly, they vary in hopper capacity. The 550A has a large 16 lbs hopper, while the 550A’s hopper capacity is 10 pounds.

    Lastly, the 550A has a slightly larger cooking area than the 550B.

    Q

    Q Can I sear on a Z Grills?

    Yes, you can. Searing occurs in the area of meat that touches the hot grate where the temperature is between 350-500 °F. So it’s easy to achieve a perfect sear with Z Grills.

    For searing meat over an open flame, Z Grills 600 series of pellet grills provide a direct flame mode that reaches a high searing temperature of up to 750 °F.

    Q

    Q Does everything put on a Z Grills get that rich smoky flavor?

    Cook all your favorite recipes on the Z Grills, because everything that can be cooked, will taste better cooked with a savory, smoky flavor. Smoke will be visible in cycles at temperatures of less than 250°F, infusing rich smoky flavor to your food. Above this temperature the fire will burn hotter and cleaner with less smoke.

    Q

    Q How long does it take to assemble a Z Grills pellet grill?

    Z Grills pellet grills are easy to assemble with all the tools supplied. All you need is open space and about 30-60 minutes on your hand.

    Z grill 550B

    I look at reviews before I purchase something but don't normally write any reviews. I purchased the 550B with the thermal blanket. The reviews were very good on this site and also on Amazon. I did add a gasket to the lid and I drilled a grommet hole for food and pit probes. I am giving this grill 5 stars because it went together good and it fired up just like the videos, manuals said it would. I have used it several times now and I am still learning on how to smoke on a pellet grill. Have always used charcoal before. I only have one complaint the grill don't sit even on the ground so I have to add an 1/4 piece of wood under one of the legs. I wanted a blanket because I smoke/grill all year long. So far I really like this grill, I have smoked sausage, ham, chicken *******, and beef jerkey. I have a thermpro tp08 I use to monitor the pit temp, it does varies from the temp on the grill sometimes 20 degrees but I am impressed on how well the grill will take care of it's self. It does take a bit of time for the temps to level out but I have only used it below freezing temps so will find out if that is still true this summer.

    Great box for the price

    I really like this box. I've cooked ribs, shoulders, steaks, and believe it or not, bread. Pros - Great value. Ease of use, Large hopper Easy to clean. Cons - Hard to keep hot on a cold day I wish the hinges were further back a few inches to make the grill easier to access. All in all a great grill for the price.

    Love it!

    So far it has been great! For the price you can't beat it and the food that comes off of it is amazing. If I ever upgrade I will be looking at another Z Grill for sure.

    Awesome!!

    I love it, The pellet grill does exactly what it is designed to do. Cooks on the precise temperature you said it on. The only thing that needs a little improvement is, I'm 6'3 in height and it's a little shorter than a lot of grill's. So if you guys could make the legs about a foot taller. Then there would be NO GRILL ANYWHERE in the country that comes close. Thanks guys, great job
