Pros: Built like a tank..heavy gauge steel, ability to grill or smoke. digitial theromostate. Made in USA, warrenty
Cons: Caster wheels too small, hard to move on uneven surface. Shelf/handle needs to be stiffer,,bends when you pick it up to move smoker.
I had been looking at the Yoder pellet grill for the last several years. Have always like the way they look and the quality of the construction...Like the heavy steel,,welds are smooth and lid fits nice and firm into body of grill. It is made here in Kansas with a great customer service dept. The operation of the tempature controls is easy and straight forward...The hopper will hold 20lbs of pellets and thus far I am using about 2lbs per hour(with ambiant temp of 50 degrees) and average cook temp of 250. I added the second shelf to mine and have liked this option. Also like the damper system, that can be used to grill, smoke or to make two different temp zones. Grease control system works well and defector shield is heavy and has not warped. Two things negative and they are minor..Stock wheels work fine on pavement...but not too good on unpaved surface...Also the wire shelf by the smoke stack...is what you lift on to move smoker...I think it needs to be stiffer. Cooks great and holds temps that are set.
