In this article we will outline how to use a Pit Boss Pellet Grill so you can impress your friends and family at cookouts or just throw a pizza party in your backyard.

Before using the grill

• Make sure to read all instructions fully before using the grill for the first time

• Preheat grill for 10 – 15 minutes until hot enough to vaporize liquid drops of water

• Let the grill cool completely once you are done using it

• It’s best to clean your grill after use, but if you’re in a hurry, run warm water over it while the fire is still hot

Grilling with Pellet Grill

There are three popular types of wood pellets used by Pit Boss Grills. These are hickory, apple, and maple. All of these are ideal for grilling meat since they bring out flavors without affecting the taste of beef or poultry that much (although some people prefer mesquite wood pellet specifically for grilling).

To determine what type of pellet works best for you, buy a small quantity first before buying more to try with your family and friends  .

When it comes to grilling, the general rule is that the thicker the meat, the lower you will set your temperature. This allows for more even cooking and prevents burning or scorching since you won’t be pushing up the temperature as much.

On average, if your grill can reach 450 degrees Fahrenheit you should cook thin meats at 350 – 400 degrees Fahrenheit while thick cuts should be cooked at 375 – 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Every grill cooks differently, so go by internal temperature rather than time unless you are experienced with pellet grill cooking times.

Here’s a tip: The best way to tell whether your meat is done without cutting into it is through touch! If you can do this then use tongs to pick up one end of your meat and let it dangle until you can tell whether your meat is ready for pulling or serving.

You may already know which temperature settings to use, but how do you place meats on the grill? First, make sure you clean your grate before starting so there’s no debris on the surface. This will help foods release smoothly once they’re placed on top of the grates.

Place thinner cuts closer to where heat comes out while thicker ones should go around the perimeter since the heat coming from this section of your grill won’t be as intense. Lastly, always remember that if your food starts sticking then it means that either the temperature is set too high or your food isn’t properly oiled yet!

How to Fix Pit Boss Pellet Grill

This is my first pellet grill. I waited for years before buying this one. At the store, the store clerk said it will take 5 min to get ready after you turn on the switch, BUT IT TAKES ME MUCH LONGER. It takes about 10 min of messing around with it before I can get something cooking like smoking or grilling. Why does it take so long?

Possible reasons:

1) The pellets in your hopper are not dry/fully dried

2) You have a cheap smoker

3) The temperature sensor in pit boss pellet grill is faulty

4) Your outlet didn’t provide enough power

5) It’s going to be warmer outside today! 6) You just activated the smoke setting instead of the cooking setting

How to fix the problems:

1) Make sure your pellets are dry by doing a burn test.

2) If you don’t have one yet, just get yourself a cheap $100-$200 pellet smoker for now or use an old oven.

3) You can buy a new temperature sensor online (should be at least $20).

4) Try using another outlet (Maybe even try plugging it into an extension cord?).

5) Clean up outside before starting!

6) Don’t forget to choose the right settings every time you start!

My pit boss pellet grill has been working well except for this problem of slow response when I turn on the switch. It takes about 10 min of messing around with it before I can get something cooking. I have been looking for grill repair shop near my area, but no luck.

So I decided to buy a temperature sensor online and replace it myself! It was very easy to install the temperature sensor. The only problem is that now it takes about 5 min of messing around with it before you can get something cooking. Why did this happen?

Possible reasons:

1) You accidentally damaged the new temperature sensor during installation

2) Your outlet doesn’t provide enough power

3) The power cord isn’t plugged into your wall tightly

4) You just activated smoke setting instead of cooking setting

How to fix the problems:

1) Don’t damage the new one!!

2) Try using another outlet (Maybe even try plugging it into an extension cord?)

3) Try plugging it in tighter
