The weather's finally getting warmer, so it's time to get outside and barbecue. For many grillers, pellet grills are the best choice for many reasons. They burn wood pellets instead of charcoal, which is better for the environment. Pellet grills also are very versatile and can be used for baking and roasting meat as well.
