Hey David, Is there a particular reason why the Grilla grills interest you? I tend to find they’re great smokers, just expensive for what they are. If you’re working with limited space (say smoking on a condo balcony) then the Grilla models vertical footprint can make all the difference between having a smoker or not. But for the price, and for a standard model smoker, the Traeger models tend to be better all around.

Wood pellet grill is a two-in-one mixture of a smoker and a grill. It doesn’t provide direct flame for your steaks or meat as a grill would which eliminates flare-ups. Since there’s no direct flame, searing meat isn’t an option and there’s a better choice if this is your desire. However, if you desire a great smoky flavor with an easy cooking process then a pellet smoker is an excellent choice.

In between the legs of this giant pellet grill is the nice additional feature in the form of a solid and reasonably sized steel shelf. While this may not be a make or break pellet grill feature, but it is something you will appreciate if you are always looking for where to place your grilling tools during and in between BBQ sessions. Everything from an extra bag of pellets, to your seasoning products, to temperature probes can be tossed on the bottom shelf.

Its advanced cooking system comes with a “set and forget” temperature control system that is monitored using its programmable meat probe. Its flame broiler allows for direct and indirect cooking. It has an automatic start up and cool down feature and LG’s proprietary exhaust mechanism for even second tier cooking. Its adjustable temperature can be set from as low as 170 F to 600 F.
I was surprised at the low amount of smoke that you see with pellet smokers. They do however still produce smoke (more so at lower temps), it is just a cleaner smoke. You wont get the billowing of smoke that you see with stick burners. Once I adjusted to it, I am able to produce the same quality of product as I can on my stick burner but with a lot less effort.
Grilla Grills are not only great with their puns, but also great with their products. Since we compiled a list of top 10, getting rid of this product from our review was a very difficult choice. Silverbac Pellet Grill, along with several others from our honorable mentions list, has been tied with our advanced pick. Therefore, we were forced to place this on our honorable mentions list. With its traditional barrel-shaped design and astounding colors, they’d look nice in your backyard should they be your top choice.

If you’ve been around for a while, you know I can’t help myself when it comes to Camp Chef’s new releases. I’ve previously written both a Woodwind pellet grill review as well as the DLX Pellet Grill review. You can read each of those reviews and see my opinions on the overall construction quality and customer satisfaction. For this review, I am going to focus on my favorite new features that the SG pellet grill brings to the table (there are a lot!!) and how they can help you improve your overall grilling experience. Here are the stats for the SG and below I’ll talk you through some of my favorites.


It features tons of built-in features, designed to facilitate the cooking process. The price on Amazon is much higher than the other smokers of similar types, but Camp Chef PG24 is a high-quality pellet smoker for cooks who are serious about getting the real taste of barbecues from their smoker grills. It is worth every penny. Let’s look at its amazing features.
With a temperature probe for meat inside the chamber, this allows you to keep an eye on the temperature of your meat without opening the grill. Nothing ruins a brisket or roast faster than the grill who constantly fiddles with the meat on the grill. Opening the chamber lets the heat out and that can quickly make for some tough meat. This handy feature takes the guess work out of how ready your meal is.

The Rec Tec smoker is the only smoker you will find on the market with Smart Grill Technology™ (notice the trademark)! It accurately maintains any temperature you set, from 180ºF to 500ºF, within a 5ºF range: forget a “Set and Forget” smoker, this is a “Set and Sleep” smoker! And while other smokers take 30-40 minutes to warm up and reach the desired temperature, I have seen this smoker take 20 minutes to reach 400ºF!
I've had it for right at a year as of the time of this review, and I absolutely LOVE IT. Normally I am of the opinion that you should overspend to get the better product, but I am 100% satisfied with the SE. I've gone through almost 200# of pellets in a year and I've successfully smoked three briskets, pork in various forms, a bunch of whole chickens, salmon, and probably some other thing I'm not thinking of. The show-stopped for me is bacon-wrapped dove breasts. I smoke them for an hour and then finish them on my grill. They are out-of-this-world amazing.
