[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] A life changer! I never in my life would have considered using a pellet grill. They seemed much too complicated to use. Also, I don't eat meat, and I assumed they were only good for smoking meat. I'm so glad I got the Cuisinart Pellet Grill. It's so easy to operate. I've used it every day since getting it! It adds so many new cooking options. As a vegan, it's amazing at smoking vegetables like corn, squash, potatoes, and my kids love any beef, chicken or fish cooked in it. I had tried making my kids ribs without using a smoker, and they were inedible. I threw some ribs in the pellet grill, and apparently they were fantastic. It's so easy! Just turn it on and come back in a couple of hours. The temperature probe is so awesome. I don't have to worry about giving my kids undercooked chicken. The digital panel is fantastic. There's no guess work. It's also completely clean, and the smoke exiting the grill is so minimal I have it sitting on my balcony. If you've never tried on of these, it's worth every penny.
