Pit Boss Classic vs Traeger Homestead Comparison

In this Pit Boss vs Traeger comparison we took our one of our top selling models, The Classic and compared features with the Traeger Homestead wood pellet grill which they are selling exclusively on QVC until July 2019. You should quickly see that dollar for dollar, Pit Boss blows away the competition in terms of features, quality, size, and value.

The Pit Boss Classic has more total cooking surface area than the Traeger Homestead (Bigger). The patented SearZone Technology inside the Classic allows our grill to get to higher internal temperatures than the Homestead (Hotter). And our 21 lb capacity hopper allows you to store more pellets than the Homestead, allowing for longer smoke times between replacing the pellets (Heavier!).

At $200 less than the Traeger Homestead, the value and quality choice is crystal clear...you just can't beat The Classic!
