Full Tour and Cook Demo Video

The Pella Adapter does not require any tools or major modifications to the grill to install or uninstall. We wanted to create a product that brings all of the benefits of pellet grilling to America's favorite kettle grill, but also had the flexibility for the user to quickly and easily convert back to charcoal grilling.

We've built a few prototypes and the final product is amazing!  From low and slow to high heat, The Pella Adapter allows full and automated control of the grilling temperature, which can be set from 175° F all the way up to 500° F.  The Pella Adapter is electronically controlled and holds the temperature within a few degrees of the set point.

The Pella Adapter's hopper can hold up to 12 pounds of pellets, allowing for 12+ hours of low and slow smoking or 4 hours of high heat grilling.

The Pella Adapter by Spider Grills is robust and compact enough to go anywhere that your kettle grill goes, making it perfect for any tailgate or cookout away from home.


Reward Details

REGULAR LEVEL REWARDS: Backers will receive one (1) Pella Adapter packed safely and delivered to your door.  Little to no assembly will be required (other than simply installing onto an existing Original Series 22" Weber Grill and plugging into a standard 110 V electrical outlet).  Make sure to get a bag of wood pellets so that you're ready to cook as soon as your product arrives.  After a quick burn-in process, you'll finally be able to conquer that 16 hour perfectly tender brisket, or some burgers...we love burgers (except for our resident vegan Kyle). 

PLUS LEVEL REWARDS: Backers also have the option of supporting us at the Plus level, and will receive two additional rewards: a 20 lb. bag of our favorite wood pellets and a custom cover to fit both the Weber 22" Kettle Grill and The Pella Adapter. 

Both packages are available with Early Bird pricing for the first 25 backers in each category. 



Test Cook Videos

 Here's some video of a night test cook where it's easier to see the flame below the heat deflector.  This thing puts out a lot of heat if you have it cranked up!

Risks and challenges

We are experts at launching products. We've been designing, engineering and manufacturing products for the grilling industry for over 10 years. With an office in Athens, GA and an office in Shenzhen, China, we know what it takes to bring a product to market. Nevertheless, there are always challenges with a new product launch. Quality control issues, supplier lead times and export/import delays can crop up unexpectedly, but our experience in this industry gives us confidence that whatever happens, we'll be able to tackle it.
