The pellet is the combustible that is obtained from the dried and pressed wood biomass to form small cylinders. Having a low humidity content has a high energy density, equivalent to twice as much of other combustibles as wood, gas or coal. In fact, thanks to its high calorific power, the grill warms up quickly with a modest amount and the heat is maintained for a long time.

With the pellet, because of indirect cooking, it is possible to preserve the food even from the flames: by cooking the meat, the fat comes into contact with a flame and works as a combustible, causing the flame to propagate to the cooking food. In this way, the surface of the food tends to carbonate, creating a carcinogenic substance, but thanks to pellet barbecue, this phenomenon is rather contained .

In addition, the pellet guarantees higher cooking quality and greater safety than gas and coal, since there are no dangers of gas leaks or explosions due to the presence of burning charcoal, however, it is best to be careful not to place near to the barbecue flammable materials.
