For this Thanksgiving Feast on my Pit Boss Grills I used my Pit Boss Grills Navigator. Work smarter not harder with this beast of a pellet grill. It heavy for our Canadian winters keeping our food warm. It reliable for over night cooks. It is a grill everyone need in their backyard.


Choosing the right pellets for your BBQ doesn't have to be complicated. Learn how to elevate your food by the fuel you feed it. Better Fuel For Better Flavor is Pit Boss Grills's motto so let's go through each blend and what food to accompany it with.
