    Pit Boss 5-Series Pellet Cooker, by Spinaker

    All in all, the Pit Boss 5-Series Vertical Cabinet Smoker is a good unit for this price point. It's easy to use and maintain, produces great results on a variety of meats and has ample capacity. One of the highlights of the 5-Series is its small footprint coupled with a large cooking capacity, a signature asset of the vertical smoker design. It's a great space saver for those of us with more than one smoker or grill in their stable

    Good job.

    This is the first new review of a Pit Boss in a few years. The 820 was reviewed in March 2016 and the K24 in June 2016.

    Pit Boss introduced their 5-year warranty in September 2018 and I see it applies to the pellet grill https://pitboss-grills.com/5-year-warranty/ . Grilla Grills only does 4-years https://grillagrills.com/wp-content/...bac-Manual.pdf .

    I've always been curious what exactly Pit Boss did to let them extend the warranties in terms of quality improvements. Do you guys have any insights? Clearly, they must have made some improvements as the warranty looks very lengthy.


      It seems to be a move to be competitive. The manual that came with the unit we received stated the warranty was one year. Yet at their website, they state it is five years. I confirmed with Pit Boss that our test model must have been made before the warranty change, yet they will honor the new warranty on older models purchased after 9/3/2018.

        You got a model made over 2 years ago? That is some slow moving inventory....

      Max Good- that is a good move on their part. That's so much better than some manufacturers who do not support their products at all and don't fix lemons when they're brand new.
