Frequently Asked Questions about the Silverbac Wood Pellet Grill
How do I get replacement parts for the Silverbac?
Replacement parts for the Silverbac can be purchased online.
Can I sear with the Silverbac?
Yes! Simply crank up your heat to 450° towards the end of you cook. For those extremely defined grill marks, we also offer custom Grill Grates customized specifically for the Silverbac.
How do I season my Silverbac?
Before you get to smoking, it's important to season your Silverbac. This process will remove any manufacturing oils left on the grill. Run your grill for 45 minutes at 450°, then you are ready to either shut it off, or start smoking. Refer to the manual or this video for additional instructions.
Do I have to buy a specific brand of pellets to use with the Silverbac?
Nope! Any food grade wood pellet will work in these units. That being said, we do recommend using quality hardwood pellet fuel, as opposed to alder wood (which tends to burn a lot faster). We provide plenty of information on how to find and use wood pellets
How many cooks can I get with a full hopper?
At an average cooking temperature of 250°, pellets burn at about a pound an hour. Overall a hopper holds 20 lbs of pellets and will cook for 10-20 hours.
How hard is it to assemble the Silverbac?
You don't need a giant manual or to be a mechanical engineer to assemble a Silverbac Wood Pellet Grill. It's a matter of attaching the bottom cabinet and top barrel. We have a video that walks you through step by step on how to assemble your Silverbac.
Will the Silverbac maintain cooking temperatures in cold weather?
You bet! Our pellet grills are come standard with a double wall Internal Steel Thermal Jacket. This heavy-duty design features a double wall liner for more efficient cooking when the temperature drops below 55° F: up to 33% more efficient than single wall pellet smokers (which most are by the way). That means you're going to burn less fuel in cold weather, you don't need thermal blankets and you have a full range of operating temperatures in any climate. No more messy smoky blanket storage because you've got the all season performance of grills that cost twice as much.
What's the best wood pellet grill?
The best wood pellet grill should have an excellent range of features and a reasonable price. The Silverbac, Grilla and Chimp offer an unmatched level of construction and technology at a price point that won’t break the bank. From stainless steel construction (where it counts) to the game changing WiFi enabled Alpha Connect controller, you won’t find a better pellet grill for the price.
Are wood pellet grills healthy?
This is a deeper question than it might appear at first, but on one level, choosing to cook foods on a wood pellet grill will generally provide a lower calorie, lower fat option than say pan frying or deep frying that same food.
How do wood pellet grills work?
Pellet grills work off of electricity, so they need an outlet to supply their power. That electricity allows the grill to move pellets into the hopper and funnel them down to a firepot using a rotating auger and motor. Once the pellets hit the firepot an igniter rod sparks a flame and smoke is produced. The electricity powers a fan that blows that smoke and heat upwards which then provides smoky, convection cooking throughout the grill. All of this is taken care of by your Alpha Connect controller, so you don't have to worry about anything but eating!
New Wireless Alpha Connect Control Board
The Silverbac Alpha Connect now comes standard with the Alpha Connect WiFi Control Board. The new controller combines all of Grilla Grills exclusive smoking technology with new, amazing features you’ve all been asking for. Start or stop your grill from anywhere you have a wireless connection. Monitor temperatures, set probe and grill temperature alarms, utilize our new TempTamer technology, and get troubleshooting help for when your grill has a hiccup.
The new TempTamer technology in the Alpha Connect controller gives you the ability to maintain steady temperatures when you have to open your grill. If you’ve used a pellet grill, you know opening it can cause your temperatures to become unstable. Our new feature tells your grill when you’ve opened your grill, so it knows how to better maintain the level of heat you set!
Of course, our other industry defining tech from our Alpha Smoke controller is built into the new Alpha Connect board. Meaning you still have the option to cook inGrilla’s traditional Pro mode to maximize smoke, or use the PID mode allowing you to maintain an incredibly steady temperature throughout your cook.
The Silverbac can cook at temperatures between 180 and 500 degrees in 5-degree increments. The included meat probe and digital control system let you keep close tabs on the grill temperature as well as the temperature of your meat from anywhere. All of the Silverbac’s components are made of high-quality materials, including the burn pot, grill grates and heat deflector which are all made of stainless steel.

This is my second Silverbac and my third grill from Grilla Grills. The outstanding customer support and great products keep me coming back.
My overall experience was amazing, great grill, great company and great customer service. HE was surprised and now he cooks on it almost every night. The meals he makes are amazing!!! Thank you Grilla Grill for giving me a great purchase!!!
I've done 3 cooks on the Silverbac so far. One just a chicken trial run, next 3 racks of ribs and a chicken, and then the big one a 10 hour brisket, chicken, and a pork shoulder and everything has been wonderful. Great smoke flavor the Alpha smoke was good for holding temperature for long period of times on the brisket, and normal mode has been great for chicken getting lots of smoke. The grill is super easy to assemble and get started to use. Everything was perfect right out of the box. The build quality over the big box store smokers is obvious as you're assembling, nice thick metal all over nothing feels like some of the cheap thin sheet metal some of the other ones have in random places. My only issue was having the lid warp slightly after the burn in which made it so the lid wouldn't close completely, apparently is extremely common, I did a quick fix to bend the hinges back in to place and everything's fine now.
My first cook was a Pork Butt, and it came out delicious. The construction of the smoker is more than sturdy. By watching various YouTube videos I learned that if I place 2 aluminum pans (6x9 I think) under the grating it reduces clean up considerably. Operation of the smoker is very simple. I recommend this smoker to anyone who likes great bbq because this smoker makes it very simple to do.
Grilla grill was delivered with a faulty control board. Eventually, a new board was delivered, and I installed it. That really was not the issue. The real issue seemed to come during the troubleshooting of what turned out to be the faulty control board. Here is that issue: It is far too difficult (nearly impossible) to search for the specific model of the Grilla Silverbac that we had purchased. Even when we called Grilla Customer Service, as friendly as the man was on the phone, he was giving all kinds of instructions over the phone that pertained to a control board for a different model of Silverbac. That was AFTER I had given him the specific model number of our Silverbac. The Customer Service rep was giving me instructions for a different Silverbac control board. This issue really does need to be corrected. 1) If I search online for help regarding a specific Grilla model number, that help should be there -- SPECIFIC TO THAT EXACT MODEL. 2) If I call the Customer Service phone number and present the representative with my specific Grilla model number, he or she should know EXACTLY what to tell me based on THAT EXACT MODEL. It would seem that this issue could be corrected fairly easily. It seems so straightforward. Thank you very much. [NOTE: Everything is working well with our Grilla grill now. Thank you.]
