Guide Review - Green Mountain Daniel Boone Pellet Grill
Like most any pellet cooker, the Green Mountain Daniel Boone has an enclosed cooking chamber and a side mounted pellet unit. The pellet unit has a 20-pound capacity hopper (where the pellets go) an auger to feed the pellets into the fire pot, a fan to boost combustion and control temperature, and a control unit. This pellet grill has a temperature range of 170 to 500 degrees F. and can be adjusted in 5 degree intervals. Of course this is an electrically powered unit.
The unique features of the Green Mountain Pellet Grills include a hopper alarm that goes off when the pellet supply gets low, a positive pressure fan to keep sparks out of the auger (and start the dreaded hopper fires), and a cold weather booster to get the grill up to temperature when and outside air is cold. These are the attention to detail sort of issues that make for a good product, of which this is one.
Green Mountain Grills are sold exclusively through independent dealers (look here for a dealer near you).
