The souped up Ortech style, notched dial controller not only provides thermostatic, set it and forget it cooking, but also has a dual LED readout that toggles between your set cooking temp and internal meat temp monitored by a stainless steel meat probe included with the unit. In addition to notched temp settings of 175F to 400F degrees, the controller has "Shutdown", "Feed", "High", "Lo Smoke", and "Hi Smoke" options. Our temperature tests indicated Lo Smoke temp is about 175 and Hi Smoke about 210. So what's the big difference between 175 and lo smoke, and 225 and hi smoke? Camp Chef says there are slight differences in the settings, mostly in the auger timing. In the 2 smoke settings the auger allows pellets to smolder more than burn.
Traeger Junior Elite: The Traeger Junior Elite Wood Pellet Grill is another great alternative from a brand name company. However, you’ll find that with only 300 sq. in. of available space it’s quite compact. It does however come with a cover which might offset some of the cost of having to buy a separate meat thermometer if you want to go that route.
This heavy-duty top-notch grill and smoker has a total cooking area of 429 square inches, which is large enough for cooking around twenty burgers at once. If that’s not enough, it comes with a secondary rack of 144 square inches that you can use for smoking or warming. With a height of 32.5 inches, you can cook a variety of meats and foods to your heart’s desire.

This pellet smoker will bring your outdoor cooking experience to an entire new level with its massive 560 cubic meter cooking area that comes with one removable rack. It can reach temperatures of up to 500 degrees F which makes it an excellent choice for grilling, smoking, braising, baking, BBQ and roasting. Reasonably priced, it’s a great investment. It’s made of high-quality materials and superior digital controls, including LED controls and auto pellet feeder. Cleanup is also 60% less demanding because the convenient trap door is for burn pot cleaning. With this efficient pellet smoker, the money you spent will be worth it.


This unit will not let even a single pellet go to waste. No need of worrying whether you’re out of pellets or not. You can carry pellets at a maximum of 20 pounds, with the digital thermostat ensuring the pellets are being used properly. This saves you loads of cash and gives you smoking food simultaneously without wasting time in refilling pellets.
Set it and forget it. It does not require you to stay while the food is being cooked as you can set a timer and temperature so you can do other things, like prepare the side dishes or drink beer with friends while the grill is doing its job. Most pellet grills use electronic controls to regulate the grilling according to your preferences. You have a choice to choose the level of smoke aside from choosing your desired temperature.
Many other features like its automatic control, built in meat probe etc. have made us select this smoker as no 1. And the most amazing fact is the price. In the price range (see the price here), we never thought that we could get all these features and benefits. We have used high end smokers like Rec Tec smokers, but this Camp Chef PG24 can beat all through its performance and affordability.
This mid-sized pellet smoker is comparable in capacity to Traeger's popular Lil' Tex Elite, but much more sophisticated and easy to find for well below its list price. It's one of the few pellet smokers we've seen with an ash removal system. Although pellets don't create much ash, they need regular cleaning, which is a pain on most other designs because the greasy grates and drip pan must be removed to get at the fire pot where the pellets burn. Camp Chef's solution is a "trap door" under the fire pot. The bottom slides back letting ash drop into a removable cup, shown below.

All we could say is wow….we can certainly do better. And that, my fellow grilling enthusiasts, is exactly what this article will provide. An easy to understand, comprehensive comparison and review guide to every Camp Chef Pellet Grill. We’ll also take a look at each model individually and make recommendations for different budgets, cooking styles and available space.

However, what sets it apart is its ability to allow for optional 15 degree temperature fluctuations. This “Hi Smoke” mode helps to obtain a maximum smoke profile. To achieve these temperature variations, the auger will move pellets in large group but less often. When compared to an even pellet feed, this produces a lot more smoke and imparts glorious BBQ perfection.
Pellet Pro 680 – As its name implies, this pellet offers 680 square inches of cooking space. But, this still falls short of what the Woodwind has to offer with its included sear box. That being said, Pellet Pro 680 is a serious competitor. It is packed with features such as a precise PID temperature controller, 13-14 gauge steel body, meat probes, variable temperature settings, heat deflector, drip pan and free 100lb bags of pellets.
