If there’s an obvious difference of this pellet grill among its counterparts, it is the vertical design, and for good reasons. The Pit Boss 5 Series Vertical Pellet Smoker has a traditional look and can fit into a very small place on your patio.
All the food I cooked with this pellet grill comes out with great flavor. Plus, they are easy to use and do not waste pellets. Simply turn it on, fill the hopper with pellets, and that’s all. Wait for flavorful, delicious food.
- Cooking space of 1659 square inches
- Digital control burn system
- Porcelain-coated Stainless steel material
- 40lb hopper capacity
- Hopper chute
The 40lb hopper capacity allows you to smoke for up to 24 hours at once without the need to refill the hopper.
So Pit Boss 5 Series came out as the most spacious grill in our pit boss pellet grills review. The huge smoker comes at 1,659 square inches of cooking space. That way, you can cook as many foods as your audience can take.
Digital temperature control system
The temperature control feature of this vertically designed pellet grill is digital. Feel free to control the temperature, adjust the burn length, and choose what kind of cooking you want to do.
Here, the temperature range is between 150-450°F. Pit boss can do better on this, though. But I think this is the best temperature for low and slow cooking. I’ve successfully cooked briskets, ribs, and pork butts on the grill.
Hopper chute for quick pellet removal
As you know, emptying the unused pellets can be frustrating. Thankfully, Pit boss found a solution by including the pellet cleanout chute feature on this model too.
Unused pellets are stored inside the chute door. Just open them, and the unused pellets will fall out automatically.
