Green Mountain Grills  – The reason that pellet grills win far more than their fair share of BBQ competitions is that the food simply tastes better when cooked over real wood. Propane has absolutely no taste, and the process of making briquettes destroys the flavor molecules in the wood they are made from. Our pellets are made from clean, kiln-dried sawdust, with the flavor molecules totally intact! And what could be easier than pushing a button – set it and forget it! Now you can “turn pro” in your own back yard.

CookinPellets: We use a pellet grill about 4-6 days per week and are serious about offering you something that we found missing in this industry….
A 100% premium product at a fair price.
Cookinpellets.com was started because we got aggravated at the minimal flavor that was produced by all the pellets we tried.
So we found the best materials to make a premium pellet and started manufacturing 8 years ago. We have over 40 dealers and 5 distributors throughout The US and Canada. Check out our online store at www.cookinpellets.com or via Amazon.com


While barrel cooking is nothing new, it has never before been brought to the mass market in a form that is both affordable and simple to use, producing perfectly cooked meals every time. We believe that everyone that enjoys outdoor cooking will want a Pit Barrel® Cooker because everyone who tries one is simply amazed by the flavor it produces.  From the moment it shows up on your doorstep (courtesy of free shipping anywhere in the continental US), the Pit Barrel Cooker exhibits high quality construction with durable steel and porcelain enamel coating, and includes enough accessories to cook an enormous variety (and quantity!) of food.”
