Full Review - Green Mountain Grills Daniel Boone Prime Plus Black Pellet Grill
Green Mountain Grills have proven themselves to be the little company that could. They started making pellet grills shortly after the Traeger Patent expires, opening up the industry to everyone. Green Mountain Grills, of GMG, has focused on building solid pellet grills and good customer support to build their business. And, they have been innovative. Their pellet grills (technically two models), have evolved into multiple models.
The Daniel Boone is the smaller of the Green Mountain Grills. The 58 square inches of cooking space is plenty for most. The great thing, however, is the height of the grill. From the cooking grate to the top of the cooking chamber is over 13 inches. Want to do a beer can turkey? You could. This height gives you versatility. And it gives GMG space to sell some accessories. There is a pizza insert that focuses heat so you can get a proper pizza out of a pellet grill. Most can't do this. You can also get a rotisserie kit for this grill.
The other impressive thing about this pellet grill is the price. You can get this particular model for around $800USD. This is an amazingly low price for the full feature model. This model has full WiFi connectivity with the GMG App. There is also a window in the cooking chamber and the hopper. You can check on the pellets and the food without lifting the lid.
Aside from the features and the accessories, the Daniel Boone Prime Plus is a classic pellet grill. There is no direct flame access. The layout of the auger, hopper, and firepot is the same as most pellet grills. There is even that metal bucket hanging on the side of the grill to catch grease. But in this price range, the Daniel Boone is hard to beat. The construction is solid, the customer service is great, and everything on this grill performs well. It is a pellet grill worth investing in.
You can also find this model with a stainless steel lid, or you can get the stripped-down, basic model for $300USD less. If you are shopping for a pellet grill under $1000, I strongly encourage you to look at this grill.
