Burgers, hot dogs, and chicken are just the beginning of what you can cook on your grill on a hot summer day. But what if you could do a different kind of cooking with a grill that costs about the same as your gas grill and can give you money back? Pellet grills are becoming more popular in homes. To see how a pellet grill can change your ways of cooking call Tri-County Hearth and Patio Center.

What is a pellet grill?

In 1985, the first pellet grill was created to grill, roast, and smoke your food. These grills are fueled by wood pellets, which are pill shaped pieces of wood that are about ¼ in diameter. These are designed to burn clean and quick to form fine ashes. You can get flavored pellets that come in all sorts, such as hickory, apple, or mesquite. In a normal pellet grill the pellets are stored in a special box where they enter at a controlled rate, depending on how high of a temperature you would like. The unit itself only takes 10 to 15 minutes to heat and then you are ready for grilling. This is how its convenience compares to gas cooking with the taste of hardwood.

Pellet grills amount to more in your checkbook!

Everyone hates number crunching and filing their tax returns. It’s stressful and you may have to pay money that’s not in your budget. But never fear! If you bought a pellet grill between January 1, 2012, and December 31, 2013, you are eligible for a tax credit. The Biomass-Burning Stove Tax Credit was developed to encourage people to make energy efficient appliances for their home. However, the credit does not apply to a new home or vacation home. All you need to claim your $300 tax credit is a receipt with the date of purchase! Any model that met the 75 percent efficiency rating was deemed part of the program and should have came with a certificate stating such information. To find out more information on the credit visit the Hearth, Patio, and Barbecue Association (HPBA) website.
