  • Uses 100% hardwood pellets so no need to store or handle wood logs


By way of an auger which is turned by an electric motor, pellets are fed into a firepot. A hot rod in the firepot ignites the pellets. Once lit, a small fan keeps the pellets burning to achieve the desired temperature. A fan inside the hopper works in tandem with a thermostat mounted inside the grill to reach and maintain temperatures.

Very – see point on temperature consistency

Is there meat a probe on the PID controller?

Yes, we provide a Smart Meat Probe which each grill. Not only can you monitor internal meat temp, but you can set target temps. Once the target temp is reached, the grill goes into “Resting Mode” at 180 degrees until you remove the probe from the protein
