Green Mountain Grills (GMG) has taken this to a whole new level, creating a cooking experience that far exceeds tradition.
Not only have they forgone the typical gas or charcoal grills and replaced them with wood chips for an eco-friendly grill, but they’ve elevated the grilling experience in the process!
Keep reading to discover all the ways these grills have transformed backyard cooking, explore some top models that have left people raving, and discover some impressive accessories to diversify your menu!
Green Mountain Grills 101: So Much More Than Just Grilling…
The rise of Green Mountain Grills in the grilling world is no fluke.
Combining innovative technology with a passion for grilling, they’ve redefined outdoor cooking. GMG offers an experience, not just another backyard BBQ.
With precise temperature control, a wide range of models tailored for different needs, and a commitment to sustainability, they’ve truly transformed grilling from a mere hobby to an art.
And the best part? You don’t need to be a BBQ maestro to operate these grills; they’re user-friendly and perfect for both novices and pros.
Amazing Features of Premium Green Mountain Grills
Green Mountain Grills has risen in popularity in no small part due to their innovative features.
These grills have redefined grilling, providing a whole new experience that’s more predictable (and delicious) than ever.
Digital Control and Monitoring
Have you ever been BBQing and found yourself wishing you could have more control over the fluctuating temperature of your grill?
You’re not alone!
GMG took this challenge and created a line of grills that give you the control you’re craving through their smart control system, allowing monitoring and control over your grill right from your phone!
With a simple touch, you can set your desired temperature within a 150°-550°F range, depending on the model, and adjust the temperature in 5° increments.
This precision control ensures your grill can meet your cooking needs even as they change from meal to meal.
Efficient Wood Pellet Burning
While charcoal leaves a district flavor profile behind on any food you throw in the BBQ, GMG has amped this flavor up in the most eco-friendly way by ditching gas and charcoal fuel sources altogether.
Instead, these grills use wood pellets to provide a more natural burn, keeping ash to a minimum, while providing an impressively consistent heat.
Better yet, through the use of premium pellets with unique combinations of wood, you can imbue your food with smoky hints of apple, maple, or hickory.
Durability and Design
Grills are an investment. One that should last you for many years to come. Green Mountain Grills does just that, with their precision design and high-quality materials.
While the unique combination of components works flawlessly together to create the perfect cooking experience, the robust build using a range of 12 to 14-gauge steel ensures longevity.
Best of all, with their turbo mode, you can enjoy outdoor cooking long after summer has passed!
These grills were made with more than backyard cooking in mind.
In fact, many models have been designed with portability in mind, ensuring good cooking can follow you anywhere.
While you may think portability is restricted to smaller models, GMG has broken the mold of what you can expect from a portable grill with their Big Pig Trailer Rig, a one-of-a-kind traveling grill!
One of the most appealing aspects of these grills, apart from the bold flavors and flexible cooking, is their eco-friendly design.
GMG has achieved this with their unique design, combining their venturi-style firebox with their precision auger system, ensuring every pellet’s potential is used to the fullest.
Not only does this maintain the efficiency of your grill, but it also minimizes waste.
Furthermore, wood pellets are a renewable resource, unlike gas, ensuring each time you fire up your GMG grill, you’re reducing your carbon footprint!
How do Green Mountain Grills Work?
Using a unique combination of elements, these grills create a completely controllable heat to achieve the ideal cooking environment for a variety of foods.
After adding your pellets to the feeder, the auger will slowly feed them into the firebox at the precise rate needed to achieve and maintain the temperature you’ve set.
As they enter the firebox, the pellets are exposed to a mix of air and fire, ensuring they are completely burned down to produce the least amount of waste possible.
The warmth created from the burning pellets rises, heating the heat shield above, which evenly distributes the heat throughout the grill.
This creates a convection oven, moving heat throughout the interior to evenly cook food at your desired temperature.
So how does the grill maintain the temperature you’ve set?
Every 10 seconds, the interior sensor reads the temperature of the grill, adjusting the rate the pellets are being fed into the firebox, and changing the amount of air circulating inside.
This ensures your grill is only ever getting the perfect mix of pellets, air, and fire to maintain the temperature you’ve chosen.
