The Grilla pellet smoker sure catches your eye. We always liked Grilla, but the original MSRP of $1,600 seemed steep. We felt a premium was being placed on the cool cosmetics. In 2016 Grilla Grills made a substantial price cut and it can now be purchased factory direct for $799 with free shipping. That drew us off the fence and into the jungle.

Grilla Grills’ full-sized Silverbac pellet cookers are solid, well-built and well thought out pieces of BBQ equipment. Grilla introduced their popular, industry first, vertical round pellet grill known as the original “Grilla” in 2010. Silverbac reverts to the more common horizontal rectangular grill shape, and according to their website, it has become the new “patriarch of the Grilla... Read More

PlaceholderHunsaker Vortex Smoker
Upright Barrel Smokers, aka Ugly Drum Smokers, have been popular for many years. In the past, most were homemade by do-it-yourselfers from a 55 gallon drum, scrounged up parts and a little elbow grease. Hence the "Ugly" moniker. But Hunsaker offers professionally made cookers that are not your father's Ugly Drum Smoker. In fact, they're downright good-looking. They come in a selection... Read More

Jambo Junior is the smallest BBQ smoker offered by Jambo Pits. With a 24" X 48" barrel, 24" X 24" X 20" firebox and plain black finish, it lacks the size and pizazz of Jambo's big, colorful competition rigs, but shares the same quality construction and thoughtful design features that make Jambo the cooking choice of many award winning competitive teams. This stock model features two... Read More

PlaceholderBlack horizontal barrel smoker on pavement in front of a outdoor wood deck.
Here's Dave Klose' idea of a small BBQ smoker. With 720 square inches of primary cooking surface the 20" x 36" Heavy Duty Pipe Smoker can handle 12 to 20 people. One of their most popular backyard models, the 20"x 36" has a 20" x 20" firebox with a five level, adjustable height "meat rack". The smoke stack has a damper and a removable ash pan comes standard. A 10' x 36" folding front... Read More

Komodo Kamados may be the most striking cookers in the world. The Gen 2.6 with a 23" wide top grate, stands 50.5" high, 30" wide at the base, and is 36" deep. It weighs a whopping 534 pounds. They arrive fully assembled, but you might need help getting it out of the crate and into position. The first thing you notice is how well built this zaftig sweetheart is. From the serious 304...
