Costco sells this Pit Boss Pellet Grill for $479.99. Scroll down for photos. This pellet grill is supposed to rival the Traeger brand grills. Based on the reviews, it sounds like it’s a great alternative to the Treager. Costco sells the Traeger Mesa 22 Pellet Grill for $489.99, but it only has 418 square inches of grilling space. This Pit Boss costs $10 less & it has more than double the cooking space @ 849 square inches. That would make me look twice at this product before purchasing a Traeger. I’ve used a Traeger for years & I really enjoy them. I’ve never used a Pit Boss, but if I was in the market for a smoker I would seriously consider this one. Here are a few more details about this Costco Pit Boss………

Costco Pit Boss Sportsman Pellet Grill
Costco does not sells this online currently. I’ve seen it at my local Costco for months now. I tried to sift through some of the reviews & I couldn’t find that many negative ones. The Pit Boss website has all good reviews, so take that with a grain of salt. The biggest negatives I found were that the item came dented/missing parts & fluctuation in temperature. I know after using a Traeger that they fluctuate temperature when the hopper loads in more pellets, so this isn’t a big deal. Also if you let soot buildup with proper maintenance you don’t get a clean burn, so this can be attributed to user error. If you’re in the market for a pellet grill, or can’t find this at Costco, check out these other HIGHLY RATED smokers…….

Where are you located. Curious what local stores have this. Couldn’t find it online.
I’m located in the Bay Area, CA. I was at Costco today & they still had these in stock. They actually had a Traeger rep trying to sell Traeger’s, but also still had a pile of the pit boss pellet grills.
