Digital Temperature Control Unit: The built-in digital unit has outstanding control of the temperature. We loved using the set and forget part of this digital controller! This smoker also came with a meat probe, this probe helped the smoker calculates whether to increase, decrease or maintain the temperature and for how long. You just need to ensure you fill the hopper and you can relax. 
I know, I know, no one likes to read the instruction manual, but even as an expert you see the advantages learning the specific of your grill. Reading the manual is key. Generally, you should not use water to clean the pellet smokers, so keep your hose pipe far away. These smokers have digital controllers, a motorized auger, a fan and an igniter rod for the fire pot. These parts will get destroyed if they come into contact with water. You should gently dry scrub the dirt off these parts, making sure not to disassemble any parts. Cleaning the thermostat will also prove essential; otherwise, it may read temperatures inaccurately.

As with all Camp Chef pellet grills, the XXL uses the patented Smart Smoke Technology to control and maintain heat output. At the push of a button, the automatic ignition will light up the burner pot but you must first fill the hopper with fuel in order to get a fire going. The temperature dial starts from as low as 150F to a high of 350F, plus you can opt for the Lo Smoke and Hi Smoke presets that automatically choose the grilling temperature for you.

If you’ve ever wanted an 8 in 1 wood pellet grill that you can just “set and forget”, then this grill makes a perfect unit for you. It was the best smoker we’ve used in terms of hassle-free use which is why it had to be one of our top picks. Digitally-controlled, this smoker ignites the unit and uses a Smart Smoke Technology™ to heat it up from 160 to 450 degrees F. This pellet smoker comes with 513 square inch grilling area, plus a 2nd cooking rack! While it doesn’t have any auto/one-touch cleanup system, its auto-shutdown feature makes it worth the value.

Temperature was very even from left to right with actual temps staying very close to set temps. Cranked all the way to high DLX ran about 480° F. The included meat probe is a great convenience you'll get accustomed to right away. Once smoking began, we just set the controller display to the meat probe and observed progress through the kitchen window.
You can achieve both direct and indirect cooking through the flame broiler, which also channels the grease away. The best part of this grill is that you get a wide porcelain coated surface of about 900 square inches to satisfy a large crowd. On top of that, you get a main surface of 633 square inches and an upper cooking rack of 280 square inches, which is also removable. Louisiana Pellet Grill will aid any aspiring cook to grill vegetables, burgers, steak or smoke fish, jerky and ribs any time with confidence.

It also utilizes the pellets put inside it with utmost efficiency. Its hopper can hold around 18 pounds of pellets, dispensing them automatically throughout the process. The digital thermostat works to ensure that they are not wasted. The smoker-grill can reach temperatures around the range of 500 F without any trouble, which makes this single unit capable of grilling and smoking with ease.
What makes this smoker unique, though, is the sear box. It runs on propane, and it gets VERY hot, VERY fast. You can easily sear meats on it, and many use the "reverse sear" method, which means to sear meats AFTER smoking them. Additionally, the sear box can be used as a small propane grill; we use it all the time for things like hot dogs and sausages.
Its 570 square inch grilling area is very much similar to what you would find on mid-tier options like the Smoke Pro DLX and XT. Although this is a bit smaller than what we expected to see in a top-tier pellet smoker, the Woodwind offers almost all the features that have become synonymous with Camp Chef pellet grills. This includes the LED temperature readout, Smart Smoke Technology, dual thermometer probes, an automated auger, warming rack, side shelf, bottom utility shelf, as well as ash and hopper clean out. A grease management system has been added to boot so that you don’t have to deal with grime when it comes to cleaning your pellet grill.
The grill offers one of the best sear boxes on the market. It can reach up to 900 degrees F giving your food a crisp and perfect sear. The 16,000 BTU stainless steel burner also contains a built-in ignition. The sear box offers grill masters another state of the art tool in their arsenal. While the sear box is an awesome feature, it bumps up the price compared to the PG24.

With a massive 700 square inches of primary grilling space, this grill impressed us when compared to other Pit Boss grills we reviewed. Its size is large enough to cook for large groups of people. It features a Flame Broiler that uses slide-plates which allow for direct flame grilling, which means you get an even cast-iron cooking each time. If the 700 square inches isn’t enough, you can make use of the additional upper cooking rack space. The racks are made of porcelain-coated cast iron for optimum grilling as well as easier maintenance.
I asked for a Traeger for my Bday, but my mom-in-law got me the Smoke Pro by Camp Chef. I am so glad she bought me the "wrong" one. All my neighbors have the Traeger. This thing kicks their butts!! 1) it gets hotter. The highest setting is 400 and then there's a setting called "high". I've gotten up to 500. My buddies pellet grills will only get up to 350. Because it can go so hot, I've thrown away my grill and use the Smoke Pro from smoking AND grilling. 2)Traeger and Pit Boss have a dirty little secret. You have to use a Shop Vac to clean out the ash. Not my Smoke Pro, you pull a tab on the side and all the ash drops into a steel bucket that came with my grill. I've watched my neighbor clean his Pit Boss. What a mess! He has to take out the greasy racks, just to get to everything and then vacuum it out....seriously stupid! 3) I love the smoke stack. You can adjust the smoke with a simple twist of the chimney top. 4) LOW and HIGH smoke. Why does everyone else only have "smoke"? I want multiple settings. Cons: Don't leave this out in the rain. My pellets got wet and turned the hopper into a concrete mess. I got it cleaned out and now use a patio cover when not in use.
Wood pellets that are tailored for pellet stoves or fireplaces usually contain tree barks and binding agents such as glue. When used in pellet smokers, these wood chips can expel some harmful chemical substances infused with the food. But since the dawn of Traeger pellet smokers, different manufacturers have been producing food-grade wood pellets to be used in pellet smokers.

The sear grill is used to create caramelized crusts on meats such as steaks or sausages, for poultry and for fish too. To sear properly very high temperatures are required and with this sear grill capable of up to 900° F you will have no difficulty in doing so. It is also fun to use the sear grill to create the crosshatch marks which make every piece of BBQ look that extra bit more appetizing.
When you have owned your smoker grill for 5-6 years you start wondering if owning a new one would be the best idea. This might happen because you are facing problems with your machine and not getting the desired result. The first and primary advice in this situation remains to clean up your grill thoroughly. Open up each and every part then proceed to doing a thorough cleaning. Most of the problems like temperature inconsistency or jamming will get solved this way.
This type of smoker is known for being an easy to use option which features many automatic functions, as well as a general simplicity. They offer portability due to their size and weight, automatic fuel feeding and automatic ignition. They also tend to be good at maintaining temperature and have a reputation for being easier to clean than other options.
