From the manufacturer:

Turn a simple dial to start the grill, and you can sear a steak, bake pizza or cookies, smoke jerky, ribs or brisket, all with natural flavored wood pellets. With a dynamic range of cooking temperature from 180° to 500°F, you have complete control with the turn of a dial. The digital control board results in precise cooking control. Fan forced convection cooking seals in meat juices and eliminates the need for a rotisserie.

The Pit Boss 820 Deluxe provides a large 820 sq. in. cooking surface: 580 sq. in. main surface, and 240 sq. in. removable upper rack. A flavor-enhancing grease tray directs excess grease to large grease bucket, while adding flavor back into your cooking. Additional features, such as the removable easy-lift stainless grilling & serving tray, copper-finish hopper lid and chimney cap, hanging hooks for barbecue tools and bottle opener, truly make this the ultimate deluxe barbecue unit. An embossed copper-finish lid for added strength, a large hopper which holds up to 24 lbs. of pellet fuel and two large, easy-rolling wheels result in a unit that is built and designed to last.
