Are you wondering how to make THE BEST nachos? Well, you should grill them on a Pit Boss of course. These grilled nachos use cooked ground beef and restaurant style toppings, but you're free to use whatever toppings you like to make it your own. The key is to grill them on a Pit Boss with wood pellets to unlock the natural wood flavors which will infuse those aromas into the meat and melted cheese. Serve before the big game and enjoy!
