  • Why use wood pellets instead of charcoal? While charcoal burns hotter, wood pellets maintain a more stable temperature over a longer period.
  • Which is cheaper: wood pellets or charcoal? In most cases, wood pellets are more affordable than charcoal.
  • Can you convert a charcoal grill for wood pellets? You can now, thanks to the Pella grill adapter. This ingenious device lets you make the transition with ease.

Charcoal has been used in various parts of the world as a cooking fuel since the 18th century. It provides fast heat and that carboniferous smoky taste that BBQ enthusiasts adore. However, cooking over coals can be tricky — the fuel burns rapidly at an erratic temperature. In contrast, wood pellets provide controlled heat over a longer period.

The Pella grill adapter lets you switch from charcoal to wood pellets in seconds. The device has been designed to work seamlessly with Weber kettle grills, and you can switch between fuel sources as you please.

What are the advantages of grilling with wood pellets?

For the true BBQ experience, charcoal is probably the best fuel source. But if you’re interested in other ways to cook meat and veggies, you might want to try burning wood pellets. Not only do wood pellets deliver a very different smoky flavor, they are also easier to control and cheaper to buy.

Of course, you probably wouldn’t want to buy a separate pellet-powered grill. But with the Pella grill adapter, you can burn wood in your standard charcoal grill.

You can use Pella with Weber kettle grills

Flames are pushed upwards into the kettle through a small vent, and you adjust the temperature via a small control knob on Pella. You can choose anywhere between 175°F and 500°F, and Pella can keep cooking for 12 hours straight.

Pella offers precise temperature control

This means you can rapidly cook a pizza, or turn the heat right down and slow cook a steak.

Easy grill adapter

Because Pella is made for specific Weber grills, it connects and disconnects seamlessly. You can switch between charcoal and wood pellet setups in less than 30 seconds.

Get that wood smoke taste with Pella

Pella holds up to 12 pounds of pellets, and the waterproof design means you don’t have to worry about rain. Better still, the adapter is easy to clean.

“The Pella Adapter does not require any tools or major modifications to the grill to install or uninstall. We wanted to create a product that brings all of the benefits of pellet grilling to America’s favorite kettle grill, but also had the flexibility for the user to quickly and easily convert back to charcoal grilling.” — Spider Grills on Kickstarter

What we ❤️

Wood smoke adds a completely different flavor to your food, and wood pellets are much kinder on your wallet than charcoal. Pella makes it easy to give pellets a try.

Niche compatibility

Bear in mind that Pella only works with the Weber kettle grills mentioned above. There are no plans to create other versions at the moment, so BBQ enthusiasts with other grills are out of luck.
