I love my Pit Boss 820D! I did a lot of research before I made my purchase and it does things that much more expensive pellet smokers can’t do. The best slow smoked foods I’ve ever made came off my Pit Boss and the option to have direct heat/flame makes it unbeatable for grilling! If you’re looking for a smoker or a grill, look no further. You get the best of both worlds with the Pit Boss. It’s nicely built and looks even better. Go ahead and compare it to those other brands and you’ll see that the Pit Boss is the one to buy. It makes cooking so easy that they had to include a bottle opener so you can sit back and relax while it cooks your food to perfection.
