    Pitts & Spitts Maverick 1250 Pellet Grill Review

    Placeholder
    The Pitts & Spitts Maverick 1250 pellet grill is their most popular mid-size model and rivals the best thermostatically controlled cookers in the business. This premium set-it-and-forget-it pellet smoker does not disappoint, although all cookers have their little quirks, and Pitts & Spitts is no different.

    Grilla Silverbac Alpha Wood Pellet Grill Review

    Placeholder
    Grilla Grills’ Silverbac pellet cookers are solid, well-built and well thought out pieces of BBQ equipment with solid, heavy-duty construction.

    Cuisinart Woodcreek 4-in-1 Pellet Grill

    Placeholder
    Cuisinart has once again won us over with their bounty of useful extras that make Woodcreek an appealing package deal. The charcoal insert provides sear power, and if you haven't used a griddle outdoors, you will after trying theirs. Both items expand Woodcreek's versatility and merit our AmazingRibs.com Gold Medal.

    Traeger Pro 575 Pellet Grill Review

    Placeholder
    The Pro Series is the entry level line in Traeger's first wave of WiFi enabled pellet smokers. Pro is a good, solid pellet smoker from an industry leader. We love their WiFIRE app and believe it is a primary selling feature of the new Traeger lines. We tested the Pro 575 and award our AmazingRibs.com Gold Medal.

    MAK Grills 2 Star General Pellet Grill Review

    REC TEC Grills Bullseye Review

    Placeholder
    This pellet smoker that looks like a charcoal kettle grill caused a bit of a stir, capturing our attention with the claim that it can smoke and grill for "the best of both worlds." Alas, we are disappointed in REC TEC's Bulleye and cannot recommend it. Click here to find out why.

    Camp Chef SmokePro SG 24 Pellet Grill Review

    Placeholder
    SG is short for Slide and Grill. The metal heat diffuser slides away exposing foods to the direct wood pellet flame for high temp searing. After testing SG we were disappointed in the Slide and Grill Sear function, but it is otherwise a solid, well made smoker with many useful features earning our Silver Medal.

    Oklahoma Joe's Rider DLX Pellet Grill Review

    Placeholder
    Oklahoma Joe's Rider DLX Pellet Grill has some very unique and clever features: a lever that shifts from smoke to sear and the best pellet hopper clean out system we've seen. During our testing and review we found a lot to like about OKJ's Rider DLX, but some serious flaws prevent us from recommending it at this time.

    FireCraft Pellet Q-450 Review

    Placeholder
    After testing, we award our AmazingRibs.com Gold Medal to FireCraft's Q-450. In addition to being made almost entirely of stainless steel this mid-size pellet smoker has a couple other unique features. Foremost is an impressive optional sear station with a three stage small flame, medium flame, and high flame firepot.

    Traeger Under Fire For Mislabeled Wood Pellets

    Placeholder

    Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill With Sear Box Review

    Placeholder
    Comparable in capacity to Traeger's popular Lil' Tex Elite, but much more sophisticated and easy to find for well below its list price.

    Camp Chef SmokePro DLX Pellet Smoker Review

    Placeholder
    This mid-sized pellet smoker is comparable in capacity to Traeger's popular Lil' Tex Elite, but much more sophisticated and easy to find for well below its list price. It's one of the few pellet smokers we've seen with an ash removal system. We tested this innovative smoker and gave it our AmazingRibs.com Gold Medal.

    Ooni 3 Pellet Burner Review

    Placeholder
    Ooni 3 comes standard with a wood pellet burner, which we found lacking and is Not Recommended. Click now to find out why we strongly prefer the Ooni 3 with their optional gas burner. With the gas burner, pizza doughs and toppings cook perfectly with slightly charred bubbles and leopard spotting on the crust.

    Black Olive Pellet Kamado Grill Review

    Placeholder
    Black Olive's patented design is billed as "The World's First Pellet Kamado Grill". The novel concept grabbed the attention of many. If Black Olive had worked as envisioned by the creators, and been brought to market for the right price, it couldda been a contender. Alas we cannot recommend this product.

    Pit Boss 820 Deluxe Pellet Smoker Review

    Placeholder
    Pit Boss by Dansons, makers of the popular Louisiana Grills, has moved quickly into the growing pellet smoker arena dominated by Traeger.

    Traeger Junior Pellet Smoker Review

    Placeholder
    As the name indicates, Traeger Junior is a smallish pellet smoker. Unfortunately it has no thermostatic control, so temperature is inaccurate because it will not respond to ambient air temp. We don't recommend this model.

    Traeger Lil' Tex Elite Pellet Smoker Review

    Placeholder

Our AmazingRibs.com Silver Medal goes to this model.

    Traeger Junior Elite Pellet Smoker Review

    Placeholder
    As the name indicates, this is a smaller version of Traeger's popular, full size, entry level Lil' Tex Elite smoker. With 292 square inches of cook surface, Junior Elite is about 3/4 the size of Lil' Tex. With the small size comes a small price. We give Junior Elite our AmazingRibs.com Best Value Silver Medal.

    Traeger Lil' Tex Pellet Smoker Review

    Placeholder
    In the past this popular cooker served as a great starter for people interested in pellet cooking. Alas, because there is no thermostatic control, it will not always cook at the same temp because it will not respond to ambient air temp. We don't recommend this model.

    Brinkmann Pellet Fuel Grill Review

    Placeholder
    In 2012 Brinkmann designed this smoker to be a knock off of Traeger's popular Lil' Tex pllet smoker. Since then, however, other manufacturers have brought newer, better pellet smokers to market, making this one a relic. We don't recommend this antiquated device.

    Blaz'n Grill Works Tailgater Pellet Smoker Review

    Placeholder
    The Tailgater Grill pellet smoker by Blaz'n Grill Works their smallest model. The basic design is typical of many pellet smokers, but Blaz'n Grill offers a few unique features. Foremost is the easy clean burn pot which allows you to bypasses the task of lifting the greasy grates and drip pan to clean out ash.

    Traeger PTG Pellet Smoker Review

    Placeholder
    There aren't many portable pellet smokers and the PTG (Portable Traeger Grill) is the smallest we've seen. With 169 square inches of cook surface and about 6 inches of head room, cooking possibilities are limited. Still this unique little cooker has some useful applications and earns our AmazingRibs.com Silver Medal.
