Search forum pellet grills. There is discussion there. My copy/paste doesn't work here on my Kindle.

I haven't used one but I did check one out at Kroger of all places last week. They had like 12 of them. $369 if I remember right. Add $30 if I remembered wrong lol. Seemed like a good enough unit to me. Alot of folks will tell you rec teq or bust. They are nice but the market is currently flooded with great options for nice pellet smokers that fit in everyone's price range. If it's in your price range grab it

Like said all people have different budgets and expectations. Pellet smokers just about all have the same mechanisms that cause them to do what they do. Also they are all about the same in thickness until you get into the upper level ones that will cost 1k and higher. I'd happily put my pitboss Austin XL up against anything else out there in the same class. Kroger also is now selling blackstones so it's probably unfair to say you can't get a good deal from a grocery store

I do not have Krogers here in Cal. Blackstone is an outstanding brand. As usual I stand corrected and you are correct budgets are a factor for sure.
I have gotten tired of cookers rusting out and/or falling apart in a few years so I try to buy once, cry once.

No disrespect meant on my part just my .02 cents. I have a buddy that has a super tiny pellet smoker that imo is a POS. But he thinks it's the greatest thing ever lol. We all have different means and expectations

My brother in law has had one he picked up from rural king. He doesn't clean anything and is hard on everything. It stills fires right up! I'd say go for it! You can spend 300 or 3000 but if you're burning the same bag of pellets there's not gonna be any difference to speak of. That's just my opinion.

I like the features of that 600E save one...Z Grills do not have Pellet Dump capabilities. I would not use it very frequently and though it not exceptionally humid here, Summer Rain Showers followed by Sunshine and humidity are not uncommon.
I don't think you can beat the price of their grills...JJ

I don't know much about Z-Grill other that they like to sponsor with NASCAR. So, it must be a good grill, right? I wouldn't be afraid to try one.
