Pellet barbecue: what you need to know
Wood pellet grills are a fantastic choice for any keen barbecuing enthusiast, combining the ease and precise control of an electric grill with the rich smoky flavours of charcoal bbqs, in a single package. Whether you are a beginner pellet smoker or an experienced barbecuer, the pellet grill offers all the bbq tools you need to roast, grill and sear any food. Weber’s SmokeFire pellet grill also allows the pellet bbq to smoke at low temperatures and sear at high heat, a balance which other brands struggle to achieve.
Authentic southern BBQs with your pellet grill
Capture the spirit of an authentic southern US bbq with our portable pellet grill and enjoy tasty food on the go. From Bourbon bbq glazed pork chops, to beer and honey grilled chicken skewers, or even “St. Louis-Style" Baby-Back ribs, the smoky wood flavours and sweet taste of the south is ideally suited to our electric wood pellet bbq. Whether you need a slower cooking time for tender pulled meats or flash-grill a sugary glaze for a crispy sheen, the precise control and wide heat range of a Weber wood pellet smoker has all you need.
How to get the smoky flavour just right
To take full advantage of the smoky wood flavours of a Weber’ pellet bbq, pre-heat fully, keep the lid closed whilst cooking and resist peeking. This enables the pellet bbq grill to build up a rich smoky atmosphere and an even heat that helps to grill and flavour food to perfection. You can rely on our bbq smoking accessories and Weber Connect smart grilling to monitor the grilling process without lifting the lid and squandering that perfect balance of moisture, heat and smoke that is the key to a successful wood-fired grill.
Choosing the right wood pellets for smoking
Maybe you prefer the all-round smoky taste of Weber’s hardwood blended pellet, or perhaps you would like to experiment more with a particular wood via a wood smoker tube? Set your inner gourmet free, and try a variety of our wood pellets to add the finishing touch to your pellet smoker.
Wood Pellet Barbecue vs. Electric Barbecue
One of the great strengths of a wood pellet grill is that they combine the rich aromas of wood-fired smoke with an electric bbq in one package. Electric bbqs are convenient, easy to use and offer great controls for cooking a wide range of meals, but they rely on marinades, seasoning and dry rubs to capture that smoky taste of a wood or charcoal pellet bbq. With a pellet barbecue, you enhance an electric barbecue with all that delicious smoky flavour that makes grilling such a pleasure.
