The only way I feel I could justify a pellet grill is if I replace my 2 charcoal grills with 1 grill. I have a performer and a 14in WSM with PartyQ temperature controller. I grill 5 days a week, and smoke once a month maybe. For me I need the pellet grill to perform as good as my performer for grilling which I am unsure if that is possible. I know it will do low and slow smokes just fine.
