A pellet can give you the best of both worlds: smoker and grill. If you already have a grill, get an electric smoker, the largest you can afford. You will never look back and the food that comes out of it is just delicious. I bought the Amerique in 2012 and it is still in use with zero problems. Lately I have been getting the old Q itch and lusting after a Fast Eddy Pellet. So far I have not succumbed. Some day!
