TRADITIONAL GRILLS

Pellet Grill

Precise temp Set & forget 8-in-1 Pure smoky flavor Cooks evenly

Charcoal Grill

Hard to control temp Messy Cooks unevenly Flareups Requires tending

  • Temperature is tricky to control by adjusting the charcoal, the air flow, or both.
  • You must frequently check the temperature and add/remove briquettes as needed.
  • Different areas of the grill will be different temperatures.
  • Take time to light and get up to temperature; can be very messy.
  • Cooking food with direct heat causes uncontrolled flare-ups and you're more likely to burn it.
  • Gas Grill

    Not safe Imparts no flavor Tricky to control Burns food easily Cannot smoke

  • You’ll need to be very careful about the fire hazards associated with gas grills.
  • Gas is odorless and tasteless.You'll be missing out on that smoky flavor.
  • There is a learning process in getting a precise temperature.
  • The open flame will burn the surface of the food before the inside cooks.
  • Unable to smoke & not designed for cooking low and slow.
  • Electric Smoker

    Cannot grill Less smoky No smoke ring Drys food

  • You cannot grill on an electric smoker. The temperature won’t get hot enough.
  • You're going to miss that rich, smoky flavor that you would get from a pellet grill.
  • It's highly unlikely to get a nice bark and a smoke ring on an electric smoker.
  • A tendency to dry out food (water pan required).

    FAQS

    Know more about our 5502H pellet grill with these Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

    Q

    Q What is the difference between 5502H and 550A?

    There are three main differences. One is in the cooking area. 550A has a larger cooking area than 5502H (585 sq. in. vs. 553 sq. in.).

    The second difference is that the 550A has a larger hopper of 16 lbs and the 5502H’s hopper capacity is 10 lbs.

    Finally, being a 2021 new model, the 5502H has an upgrade in temperature control. It’s equipped with a PID controller for more consistent temperatures throughout your cook.

    Q

    Q What is the difference between 5502H and 550B?

    They are very similar indeed. Apart from the leg design, they slightly vary in the size of the cooking area (553 sq. in. vs. 560 sq. in.).

    Q

    Q Can I sear on a Z Grills?

    Yes, you can. Searing occurs in the area of meat that touches the hot grate where the temperature is between 350-500 °F. So it’s easy to achieve a perfect sear with Z Grills.

    For searing meat over an open flame, Z Grills 600 series of pellet grills provide a direct flame mode that reaches a high searing temperature of up to 750 °F.

    Q

    Q Does everything put on a Z Grills get that rich smoky flavor?

    Cook all your favorite recipes on the Z Grills, because everything that can be cooked, will taste better cooked with a savory, smoky flavor. Smoke will be visible in cycles at temperatures of less than 250°F, infusing rich smoky flavor to your food. Above this temperature the fire will burn hotter and cleaner with less smoke.

    Q

    Q How long does it take to assemble a Z Grills pellet grill?

    Z Grills pellet grills are easy to assemble with all the tools supplied. All you need is open space and about 30-60 minutes on your hand.
