The Copperhead Series vertical wood-pellet smoker by Pit Boss.

Pit Boss Grills Disrupts
the Smoking and Grilling Industry

Friday, May 11, 2018

Pit Boss Grills (Dansons, Inc.) is introducing a new line of vertical smokers to the market. As the warmer months start approaching and outdoor activities begin taking priority, consumers are able to enjoy not only grilling season, but smoking season as well. Pit Boss Grills is new to the vertical smoker industry and is rousing conversations by delivering “not another black box” to the market. Offering four (4) different types of vertical smokers: analog electric, digital electric, gas, and wood pellet, Pit Boss has created a smoker for everybody, in every desired style (available in multiple sizes).

The Copperhead Series (wood-pellet smokers) offers users the savory real-wood flavor of cooking with natural, hardwood pellets. The pellets are naturally bound using only pressure to compress the premium hardwood together – meaning zero chemicals, glues, artificial scents or byproducts are used in the creation of Pit Boss Pellets. The food is cooked quickly and efficiently with a temperature range of 150-450F, while the included meat probe measures internal temperatures ensuring perfectly smoked results, every time. 

The Red Rock Series (gas smokers) offers luscious, smoky flavors with a gas fuel source. The wood chip tray allows consumers to add all the flavor that is desired, while the Pit Boss Smoker provides a clean burn with a wide temperature range (100-350F). Enjoy true portability as no power is required, and with simple dial controls as well as a push igniter, this smoker truly is “fool proof.”

The Silver Star Series provides delicious wood infused flavor with the ease of electric. A digital control board and included meat probe help prepare savory dishes perfectly – every time. The wood chip tray provides the desired smoked flavor, while the Caster wheels allow for easy movement.

The Blue Blazing Series allows for true simplicity in smoking. With a wood chip tray to add that real smoked flavor, a simple dial control and included analog meat probe, this simple electric smoker does not disappoint.
