Wood pellet grills were first introduced over 20 years ago by Traeger Pellet Grills. No fluids, no lighters and no gas. Instead a pellet grill is powered by pellets of wood shaped like a large pill capsule. Unlike charcoal grills, which take up to 30 minutes to heat up, wood pellet grills can give off an even heat quite quickly. And unlike, propane grills which heat up quickly but lack flavor, foods cooked on pellet grills are rich in smokiness and succulence.
