Yea. I just bought one of those.
There are some videos out there. More on the kc combo then the Lockhart. Been looking every few days to see if anything new pops up.I'd be interested to hear more reviews from the posters here about the new Pit Boss Platinum grills. Most of the reviews on Walmart's site appear to have been written by store associates from demo events, which I don't really trust.
I just bought the Masterbuilt Gravity 560. Not put together yet. The box was missing a gasket but Masterbuilt is sending one out. Basically there are only two parts that you might need to replace, the fan and the controller. I just got 25 pounds of Salmon and am ready to go !I've got my eye on the Masterbuilt gravity charcoal grill. Very neat idea. Still loving my Traeger though.
For seared steaks and burgers, I actually like the specs of the OKJ Pellet. It claims hotter than Weber, and the "searing" area looks much bigger than the searing area on the PB units. That said, it's also their first pellet (same with Weber), so there's some risk there.That's what is making the decision so difficult. Every thing is so new and untested for durability. It's down to the Pit Boss Lockhart, Masterbuilt Gravity and the Weber Pellet Grill. It seems the PB would be best for Kielbasa but the Weber the best choice for Seared Steaks and Burgers. Thoughts?....JJ
Yep, they put out a line this year. I saw a mini version at Target last week, but the big one at Lowe's is what I've been looking at. Similar to the PB Platinum series, reviews are just starting to roll in on them. I just found this review this morning. https://www.nibblemethis.com/2020/01/product-review-oklahoma-joes-rider-dlx.htmlDidnt know OKJ was making a Pellet Pooper. Got to have a look. Thanks...JJ
That was a good read! At that price........and when sales pop up............If all the bugs are worked out that looks like one hell of a pellet grill.Yep, they put out a line this year.

I agree. I think I'm about to pull the trigger on it. Even though I've seen some auger jam issues pop up in one of the fan groups, they've all said the customer service was great when responding to issues, so that makes me less concerned.That was a good read!

Yikes, sounds like you've got some bad luck! Honestly, with those bad experiences, I might would just go with a company that has been doing Pellet Grills for years instead of people doing them for the first time.Hi everybody, I'm new here but felt like I need to chime in. I've been shopping for a pellet grill for some time now and saw the new Oklahoma Joe's Rider DLX and immediately wanted it. I bought it about a week later and immediately had all kinds of issues. It tripped my breaker several times, wasn't holding a steady temp, and almost started a hopper fire. The pellets in the auger were on fire and smoke was coming out of the hopper. On top of that, ash was everywhere, which makes the ash cup mostly pointless. I'm sure I received a defective grill, but after using it I realized there were many design features that make this grill undesirable and I returned it to get my money back.
With that being said, I decided to buy the new Masterbuilt gravity grill and it was dented pretty bad even though the box looked to be in good shape. Customer service was fantastic and offered a replacement, but after more thought I've decided to return this as well.
I'm looking at the new Cuisinart which seems pretty solid to me. The lack of reviews and no prior experience with pellet grills keep me skeptical. Also thinking maybe spend a little more and get the new Weber. I think that will be a great product, but again, no reviews. With all of that being said, I'll most likely go with the Pro Series PB from Lowe's. I think at least with it I'll get a solid, dependable grill that I'm confident will work as intended for at least a few years.
