LOUISIANA GRILL DIGITAL UPGRADE

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

HELLO

i am going to purchase a louisiana pellet grill as that is what is available in the little hovel where i live. i was wondering if anyone has upgraded their rig with the new digital controls. has a temp probe and meat probe and has complete temp control like an oven  etc. was just wondering if it will be worth the extra $$$$$$$$. it is an after market add on, does not come on the grill itself.

thanks for any input

Hi Goliath, I don't know much about Louisiana grills, but I'll give your question a 'bump'.  To be honest, I don't know how many members we have who own a Louisiana...but maybe someone will chime in.  In general, I'd say any upgrade to better digital controller would be a good thing, depending on the cost and your budget.  The more control and accuracy you have over your set temps, the easier these pits are to use.

mine has been ordered and an upper rack.

sad thing is my buddy says the new ones now come stock with the digital electronics, cover and upper rack for the same price he was buying the other ones for 3 hears ago. but thats just technology.

excited to get it.

 did some chicken again the other day, was 55 outside and breezy and i watched a 30 degree swing with my maverick. hoping this can be better controlled.

Golith, i purchased my cs450 specifically for the digi control. I have to say ive been smoking for about 10 years now and ive used charcoal and gas. I have never been more satisfied with a product then i am with this smoker. I posted some pics of the smoker and my first cook on it n the roll call forum and this is how it went. Had the meat prepared ahead of time got busy and didn't get home until 11 pm on the day i wanted to cook. Fired it up let it come to preheat temp,adjusted to 225°,put the meat on at about midnight, inserted the meat probe and set the temp to 195°. Went to bed.woke up at 5 am to check and top off the hopper. Back to bed. Did another check at 10 am and the meat temp was at 180°. Took it off about an hour. Later when the temp reached 190°.the pork was perfect,the temp held at a steady 225 for the duration of the cook. So as i said before. I am very very pleased with this smoker and it's digital control.

I just use a dual remote thermometer.  It shows the BBQ temp and the meat temp so that is all I need.  I no longer have to leave the house to check on the grill and/or check the temp of the meat.  The BBQ temp on my smoker/grill stays stready as long as I don't open the  lid!

I saw the units last Oct at our team site at the Royal. The new controller is certainly a great improvement and one I would go for! They will also be coming out with a direct grilling option very soon that also looked like a great thing for grilling meats and having the higher temps afforded by the slots in the drip pan.
