Thinking About Adding a Pellet Grill thoughts? in Non Kamado Cookers Posted September 27, 2017 Awesome info John, thank you. That's in line pretty much exactly with what my expectations were for a pellet grill. I ended up just selling my sweet a** Weber LP grill I just bought last year for $699 plus tax (sold for $550) so I already made that commitment! I like my Akorn, but at times it's just been a little too much fussing. For low & slows I want more of a set & forget type of system. I'll be interested to see the smoke effect though as I really like how you can load up the box with 4 or 5 chunks of hardwood and get a nice smoke flavor on butts and ribs. I hear that you don't get quite the same smoke with the pellet, but there are 'work arounds'.
