You have a good point. And really only the snobs can tell a difference (just like most people couldn't tell what flavor of pellets I am using).
I say it's cheating because it feels like I am cheating. For example, a lot of people comment on how good the pulled pork I make is. What they don't know is I spend about 10 minutes actually making it. Season meat, add to grill, go to bed. Check pellet level when I wake up. Pull it off the smoker just before lunch. Shred after resting. Then serve. It may not actually be cheating, but the entire process is so easy it feels that way.
Pellet grills are the Easy Bake Oven of the smoker world. I wouldnt say its cheating, as it produces a good product. To me, it's like wheeling a JK. It will get you there and the aftermarket is wide open, but the more you dig deeper, for many they want to get something more custom.
