    Hi Guys,

    I'm looking for a smoker. I was about to get a Smoke Vault 24" and convert it to NG, but then I saw the SMOKEPRO XXL PELLET SMOKER. It looks very interesting, but I could not find any reviews of it, its also out of stock in most places.
    What do you think about it ? Is it out of stock because its so good or they just found some issue with it and stopped selling ?

    I don't know anyone that's bought one, nor seen any reviews. I'd give Camp Chef a call/email and ask if they are still selling them. They are usually very responsive.

    Hey guys - I've been looking at picking up the same smoker, so I emailed Camp Chef last week and they got back to me with the following, sales exceeded expectations and sold out quickly. We are in the process of having more made, and making some modifications to it as well. We are not expecting them back in stock until the beginning of the year.

    Maybe I'll get some gift cards for Christmas I can put towards the purchase!
  4. That's the same one I'm interested in. I emailed them and got the same reply, minus the "making some modifications" part. Also, I emailed a vendor, they said the same exact thing, verbatim.

    With them selling out so fast and myself not being able to find any reviews on it.. seems.. well.. odd.

    I did inquire if you could put the sear box on it that they sell for the woodwind, but it is not compatible. All the pellet smokers it will fit, but the smokepro XXL pellet. Not a big issue, just sharing if anyone was thinking of adding it.

    Most other pellet grills this size are out of my price range, so I was hoping this would be a hit. Now, not so sure.

    Found the first review video this morning: . After reviewing some of his other videos, he may be some sort of independent tester for CampChef.

    I'm wondering if they did this initial run as a sort of beta release to gauge interest. Considering Masterbuilt already has a knockoff in Cabelas ($599), I'd guess that ChampChef will be ready for a full production run come the first quarter of 2018. Strangely, I don't see Masterbuilt's version on their website.
  6. Thats interesting. So..I have read where pellets dont smoke much over 275*..but this seemed to be producing good smoke over 300..or did I not see it right in the video?

    I saw the one on cabelas...its even on sale at the moment, but no reviews are posted.

    Ive gotta make up my mind..either tge smoke vault propane or a pellet..more researching!

    I have been interested in this smoker as well. It was available for the better part of a year and apparently sold well, how on earth are there no reviews on the internet? Well besides one that may or may not be related to camp chef?
