The Ultimate Backyard Grill or Pellet Perfection

■ If you have ever tried a “Wood Fired” steak, rack of ribs, burger, or pizza you will understand why high-end “Wood Fired BBQ Restaurants, Steakhouses, and Pizza Places are cropping up across the country. Wood is king because it is the only fuel that adds real competition quality flavor to your food. Over the past years, backyard pellet grills have emerged as a great alternative for the person who wants to create competition/restaurant quality food in the backyard. That quality can now be achieved without the hassle of starting a fire, dealing with lighter fluid, and baby sitting the grill to maintain proper temperatures. Pellet grills have controls that automatically light the fire and allow the operator to set the desired cooking temperature. Some pellet grills allow you to not only smoke and barbecue but also reach temperatures high enough to grill steaks, chops, or hamburgers at true grilling temperatures. Cuts such as brisket, loin, ribs, and roasts are best cooked low and slow.

■ Hardwood pellets are available in several wood “flavors”, such as hickory, alder, apple, cherry, mesquite, maple, oak, pecan, cabernet, beer hop, sweet wood, nectarine, apricot, rosemary, and custom blends. Pellet grills work with indirect convection heating, which also provides the ability to bake breads, pizzas, or pies. Indirect heating offers you the convenience of not having to worry about flare-ups, as well as giving you the safest possible burn, with the least amount of carcinogens.

■ Pellet grills come in a variety of sizes to fit your needs, all the way from commercial size trailers, to very small portable units. There is a new concept from “Enviro” called the “Black Olive,” that is the worlds first kamado pellet grill that will go all the way from 200 to 700 degrees. The shell is ceramic which offers maximum moisture retention, and superior insulation, which will save fuel. This grill can be changed with ease, through convenient, removable panel at the bottom of the hopper. Because of the ceramic shell, you can grill all through the winter and still maintain your desired temperatures.

The Gallery of Fireplaces, at 385 Merchant st. offers many brands of pellet grills to choose from including, Traeger, Green Mountain, Memphis, Louisiana, Black Olive, as well as a full selection of pellets, large selection of rubs, and accessories.
