Just got my Royall 1000 Pellet smoker !

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
the waiting is over ,i got it !
just need to get some meat for this weekend ... i may try a small pork shoulder

new grill arrived well packed, ups said they'd be here at 1-4pm
i got home at 1255 , it was already there so i was a little nervous about damage.
smoke stack had a little ding on the very top, but thats about it.

unpacked, some slight paint chips on corner metal. not a big deal

first surprise, wiring issue. i called Royall they are sending replacement board. they told me where the wires go and i spliced it together so i could get it going.

all parts layed out

picture of firebox
looking over the grill and heat shield stuff , everything looked heavy duty

so i started to assemle

2 issues

leg holes were off on 3 of the legs requiring a bit of fineese to get all the bolts in.

when mounting the fan, the pre drilled holes were way to small to get self tapping screws to go in through the heavy gauge steel by hand. i got out the cordless drill and put those in.

took about 45 minutes to put together with the leg issues.

the new deck team side by side !

started the burn in with BM cherry pellets
about 58F 20%H outside

after about a hour the high temp was around 420F

Time for a little test of grilling, the only thing i had to cook was chicken breast so i tried that first. i did put the CI grill plates out of my gas grill in here to try and get better results.
came out pretty good, the grill plates got to about 420-500 degrees with the temp all the way up

more to come !

cool new smoker/grill.

Is it just like a traeger?

same idea, the lid on this one is taller and overall a little bit thicker steel construction

Congrats on the new smoker. I was amazed at how close it resembles the Treager though. Believe me you will grow to love that control.

welcome fellow pellet cooker! I've never seen that brand of cooker, but I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I just got one about that size by louisana-grills, a pellet cooker also, I like it.PDT_Armataz_01_36.gif

Congrats on the new smoker, new toys are fun. I just bought a new grill, its a combo 3 burner gas on one side, and a charcoal grill on the other, and I also just bought a vertical propane smoker, I like it a lot. My wife wanted a new fridge and a new upright freezer, and we needed a new grill, so we went to Sears, and I worked a deal with the manager, and got all 3 for just over $2000.

I was looking at a Utube on Lollypop chicken and he cooked it on a Royal Tailgater Pellet Grill. I looked like there was plenty of room but it was still small enough to take with camping. If I bought one and my wife found out how much it was I would really be in for it. Hope you have good luck with it.

To Lizziejoy,


I have some questions for you.  I have been looking at the Pellet Pro Grill.  How long have you had yours?  Which size did you get?  Have you been happy w/the grill?  Any problems/concerns?  Would appreciate any information you can pass on.
