I am considering purchasing a pellet smoker and came across these made in California and Wisconsin. They both appear to be fairly new. I don't have thousands to spend and not quite happy with the ones made in China. The Sweet Home Grills have a 5 year warranty on the steel, 2 years on the electronics. The Royall has a 5 year limited warranty. I did notice the Royall has a bent metal handle. Does it get to hot to handle on high heat? I would welcome everyone's comments.
