PlaceholderShiny stainless steel pellet smoker with two doors inside the smokebox hood. A wood pellet hopper on the left has a colorful control panel and there is a shelf on the right.
In the beginning pellet cookers were used mostly as smokers because they didn't really have high temperature grilling ability. After more than a decade of design revisions, most of the pellet burners still cannot do both well. Introduced in 2010, the Fast Eddy's by Cookshack PG1000 took an innovative approach to being both a low and slow smoker and a fast cooking grill. Now Cookshack... Read More

PlaceholderBlack, rectangular pellet smoker on four legs with a box attached to the left side. The Box has a control panel with LED display. A chimney sticks out the right side.
The Green Mountain Grills Daniel Boone is their most popular model. Green Mountain includes some features not common in lower price pellet smokers and that often cost extra even in higher cost cookers. There's a standard meat probe feature that reports the internal temperature of what's being cooked to the controller read-out, a low pellet alarm, a work surface on both sides, and tool... Read More

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. Form does follow function in some aspects... Read More

PlaceholderVery large contraption made of stainless steel and red bricks. A large bar connected to a crank wheels is suspended above with a roof covering all. Large storage areas can be seen at the base.
Designed to knock out both the cook and client, this spectacular machine is intended for cutting edge restaurants that want to enflame their guest's dining experience. At 135 inches wide and 1600 pounds, it is essentially a very large version of Grillwork's popular Asador with independent left and right grills and a fire cage at the center. The fire cage is a raised fire box with large... Read More

The Hasty-Bake Continental 83 Dual Finish Charcoal Grill is a smaller version of the Gourmet model that Meathead tested and declared to be the finest BBQ charcoal grill he ever worked with. To learn more, read his review of the Hasty-Bake Gourmet 256 Dual Finish Charcoal Grill.

PlaceholderBig black horizontal barrel smoker on a large red trailer with large black wheels, parked on a grass field.
Horizon's 30" Double Door Smoker Trailer has to be good because owner, Roger Davison (below), has one in his backyard. Davison has made high quality 1/4" BBQ pits for decades since he started Oklahoma Joe Smokers. Bigger is better according to Davison. He feels large Horizon offsets distribute and hold heat more evenly than the junior models. This big boy has 2,655 square inches of... 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

PlaceholderLarge black horizontal barrel smoker with tall chimney on the left and large firebox on the right.
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
