looking for ideas

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello all. I am looking for a new pellet grill. I have a treager that i wish i could blow up with TNT. I have been checking out Louisianan, Rec Tec, a yoder and a Memphis grill. I want to hear some pro and cons on these grills. The grill will be used in our catering business so it will be used on a daily basis. So if you have some suggestion please let me know. Thanks in advance.

I like my Rec Tec a lot.  Great temp controller, very accurate from 180*-500*.  Adds plenty of good smoke at low-and-slow temps.  Does a good job of direct grilling too with the added searing kit accessory.  


I looked at both a YS640 and a Memphis Pro when I was comparison shopping.  They are both outstanding pits, but were out of my price range.  It really depends on what your budget is.  I'm very happy with the RT...IMO its a great value for someone wanting a good pellet rig on a budget.  But if money had been no object, I would have probably ended up owning a Memphis (Elite or Pro) or a Fast Eddy by Cookshack.

I have the ys640 and it has worked well for me.  That being said if i was going to be using it everyday then I would look at the fast eddy cook shack or the bigger yoder pellet grill (ys 1500 i think).  That is assuming that you will be cooking alot of meat a day.

thanks for your reply's. Yes we cook a lot of meat a day. We look after 3 hotels that has a lot of oil guys staying there. We are cooking 7 days a week for these 3 hotels, we also cook for a care home once a month. My treager has had 8 digital controllers, 3 glow rods, 3 fire pots, a fan and an auger motor, a temp probe and my lid was replaced as well. Treagers may be good for sunday cooks with the family, but not if you use them every day.

The Yoder has the option of the comp cart which makes it more moveable. The Yoder 1500 is 3500 bucks without options.
