Green Mountain Grills Pellet Grills/Smokers FAQ

Hi, I’m Chris I started PelHeat.com back in 2007.

My general pellet grill/smoker FAQ page offers answers to a wide range of topics about pellet grills/smokers and the pellets they use. However, this page is specifically a Green Mountain Grills (GMG) focused FAQ page, discussing questions about what features & capabilities the current range of pellet grills/smokers offer. For instance, which GMG pellet grills come with features such as WiFi, direct-flame access, twin-wall insulated construction, stainless steel, pellet dump etc. I’ll also provide links to articles I’ve produced on specific GMG models and my comparison/vs articles. Enjoy 🙂

What’s The Warranty On GMG Pellet Grills?

Green Mountain Grills is offering the same warranty term of 3-years for all their pellet grills. It should be noted, the warranty ‘does not cover cosmetic elements and components, such as paint and other finishes‘. This is a standard warranty term that other pellet grill/smoker manufacturers also state.

Where Are GMG Pellet Grills Made?

All current Green Mountain Grills pellet grills/smokers are manufactured in China.

Does GMG Produce Portable Pellet Grills?

Yes, the Davy Crocket is Green Mountain Grills portable pellet grill offering with folding legs and a low weight of 57 lbs. The Davy Crocket is one of the best portable pellet grills on the market today, offering a high-temperature setting (550 degrees) and a PID control panel for precise temperature control to within 5 degrees of the set temperature. The Davy Crocket also comes with WiFi integration so the grill can be controlled via the GMG app. Importantly the Davy Crocket is also set up to run directly from a 12V DC power supply, no inverter required, it even provides the option for direct-flame access.

Does GMG Produce Vertical Pellet Smokers?

No, Green Mountain Grills is currently focused on purely offering horizontal pellet grills/smokers.

Does GMG Produce Built-In Pellet Grills/Smokers?

No, Green Mountain Grills do not currently offer built-in versions of any of their pellet grills. All models are offered only as free-standing cart versions.

Does GMG Produce Pellet/Gas Combo Pellet Grills?

No, Green Mountain Grills is yet to produce a pellet/gas combo pellet grill.

Does GMG Produce Stainless Steel Pellet Grills/Smokers?

While Green Mountain Grills do not currently produce full-stainless steel pellet grills, they do use stainless steel on some of their pellet grills for the grill/hopper lids. They include the Davy Crocket, the Prime Plus Daniel Boone and the Prime Plus Jim Bowie. GMG also use stainless steel for some of their internal components.

Does GMG Produce Twin-Wall Insulated Pellet Grills/Smokers?

No, all Green Mountain Grills pellet grills use single-wall steel construction, therefore, for use in the colder months of the year, an insulated blanket is recommended for more stable internal temperatures and reduced pellet consumption. GMG sell insulated blankets for their Daniel Boone and Jim Bowie pellet grills, but not their smallest unit the Davy Crocket. Therefore, the Davy Crocket is more suited to spring/summer grilling.

Do GMG Pellet Grills Come With WiFi/App Support?

Green Mountain Grills in ‘Prime’ specification come with WiFi integration, which includes the smallest/cheapest pellet grill the Davy Crocket which is part of the Prime range, but Prime is not included in the product description.

Do GMG Pellet Grills Come With PID Control Panels?

Yes, all Green Mountain Grills come with control panels running a PID algorithm for precise temperature control to within 5-degrees of the set temperature, even the Choice grills which do not come with WiFi integration.

Do GMG Pellet Grills Offer Direct-Flame Access?

This is an interesting one, so all Green Mountain Grills can be set up with direct-flame access. However, out of the box, that may not be the case. In most instance, GMG is providing their grills with a single-piece solid stainless steel grease tray. Though on the parts list for each GMG pellet grill, even the tiny Davy Crocket, you can order a 2-piece sliding stainless steel grease tray to enable direct-flame access. I’ve discussed this with GMG, and they have stated while they are happy to provide the option of direct-flame access they only want customers to use the feature who are fully aware of the potential grease fire/flare-up risks.

Do GMG Pellet Grills Offer Easy Ash Clean Out?

On the Prime specification versions of the Daniel Boone and the Jim Bowie an ash-vac port is installed on the side of the grills to quickly and easily clean ash out of the grills once cool. However, on the Davy Crocket and Choice versions of the Daniel Boone and Jim Bowie ash cleaning will require removing the cooking grates, grease tray, heat deflector and getting into the base of the grills with an ash vac once cool.

Do GMG Pellet Grills Come With A Hopper Pellet Dump?

The Prime specification versions of the Daniel Boone and the Jim Bowie do feature a pellet dump on the rear of the hoppers to quickly change pellet flavours and for proper long term storage. However, on other GMG pellet grills, you will need to use a scoop/cup to empty the pellet hopper.
