Best Time to Buy a Grill: 5 Reasons to Buy a WiFi Pellet Grill in the Spring

Do you smell that? Spring is in the air! Wait, no — take another whiff. That’s not spring; it’s the smell of a rack of ribs being slow-cooked over hickory. (Spring is probably in there, too, but if you’re like us, you’re focused on the meat.)

We don’t think there’s such a thing as a bad time of year to buy a grill. After all, some people keep their grills smoking all through the winter! That said, spring is definitely one of the times of year that lends itself well to grilling. In fact, here at Grilla Grills, spring is the time when a lot of our customers purchase our WiFi pellet grills. What makes spring such a popular time to take the plunge on a state-of-the-art smart grill? While we can’t speak for everybody, we can definitely tell you why the pitmasters at Grilla Grills are stoked for another smoky spring!

1. Spring is a great time to have a barbecue.

Not too hot, not too cold, a nice breeze flowing — in many parts of the U.S., spring is secretly an awesome season for hosting a cookout. On top of that, anyone who’s been inside for the winter will probably be hungry for an opportunity to get out of their hibernation — and just hungry in general. A WiFi pellet grill like the Grilla Grills Silverbac with Alpha Connect is the perfect way to enter a new era of grilling as the season starts. With Alpha Connect, it’s easy to monitor and control all of your grill’s functions from an intuitive mobile app. Our included smart meat probes automatically monitor the internal temps of thick meats like pork butt and pot roast, while you chat with guests, play cornhole or do whatever else you feel like!

2. It’s the beginning of BBQ competition season.

Although BBQ competition season doesn’t peak until the summer, there are still great BBQ festivals and events in the spring. Big events like Memphis in May and the Houston BBQ Festival bring pitmasters from all over the U.S. to test their skills, and dozens of smaller community events happen every weekend. 

Spring is also the perfect time to start sharpening up your favorite BBQ recipes if you want to participate in summer and autumn competitions. That’s why it’s also important to get your weapon of choice squared away! Choose a new WiFi pellet grill in the spring, and you’ll be in great shape to dominate BBQ contests for the rest of the year.

3. Spring is a great time to enjoy delicious fresh produce.

With the return of warm weather comes a jaw-dropping variety of fresh fruits and veggies. From asparagus to strawberries to carrots, you’ll have a wealth of tasty produce ready to go into your salads, kebabs, side dishes and whatever else you can think of! Meat doesn’t take the spring off, either: If you’re a lamb lover, you owe it to yourself to try the unbeatable tenderness of spring lamb at least once.

Pro tip: If it’s been a while since you’ve hit up your local farmer’s market, this spring is the perfect time to go! There’s nothing to put you in the spirit of the season like seeing all of the fresh, juicy produce lined up and waiting to hit your grill grates. Oh, and don’t forget to pick up some tasty spring cheeses too. 

4. Spring has great holidays for cookouts.

Spring holidays are all about making the most of this vibrant time of year. Holidays like Easter invite us to celebrate new beginnings, while Cinco de Mayo and St. Patrick’s Day are all about the joy of heritage and tradition. Any of these holidays can offer the perfect opportunity to host a cookout and serve up some tasty food.

Then, of course, there’s Memorial Day. In addition to being a time to honor America’s fallen heroes, it’s probably the number one cookout holiday of the year, since it kicks off the summer season. Check out our Memorial Day cookout tips for help in planning the best Memorial Day bash ever!

5. A WiFi grill will let you get away from the grill and enjoy the weather.

Love the idea of getting outside and grilling, but tired of standing in one place tending the grill for most of the party? A WiFi pellet grill makes it much easier to truly relax and enjoy yourself at a spring cookout. With the Grilla Grills Alpha Connect smart grill technology, you can “set it and forget it” while you enjoy being out and about in the springtime! Many of our customers love the outdoors, and our Chimp and Silverbac AT models are both designed for easy portability to your cabin, campsite or anywhere else, as long as you’ve got electricity available.
