SearMaster 788 sq. in. Pellet Smoker and Grill

After you try our wood pellet grill and experience the easy, delicious results, you’ll find that this is the only outdoor cooker you'll ever need. It takes the place of a gas grill, charcoal grill and wood smoker, combining the best of each product with one-touch lighting (like a gas grill) and slow-cooked, fall-off-the-bone taste (like a professional smoker). The food really does taste better than any gas or charcoal grill can manage. The grill’s design is safer than a gas or charcoal grill, since there is no gas involved and no large bed of hot coals. In fact, it is the only one of its kind to be safety tested and approved to UL Standards, giving you the peace of mind that others just can’t offer. Our unique, patented design also means that you won't find another product out there that allows for this kind of direct (over-the-flame) as well as indirect (slow-smoking) cooking in the same package. And the fact that it uses natural, flavored wood pellets means that you'll enjoy the great smoke ring and flavored taste that the pros do. Finally, we’ve put many hours of R and D into our digital control system (we believe it is the best in the industry, bar none). The push-button board allows you to set temperatures in increments of 5 degrees for maximum accuracy, and it has our own ‘Trouble-free Smoking’ convenience so that you can actually spend time with your friends and family while you cook, and - even though you aren’t a professional chef - they won’t have to know.

I had a Traeger Jr Elite which was fine, but just too small. Bought this and have not looked back since. Takes a little getting used to the different cooking zones in the smoker but once you get that down you are off to the races. It holds plenty of pellets for overnight cooking with the 18lb hopper. I have had no problems with it to speak of. I have owned the smoker for 3 months and have cooked well over 200lbs of meat in it. Photo shows the inside of the smoker with Boston Butts.

The grill is well built and was easy to assemble. I have cooked about everything imaginable on it with no problems. It holds the temperature well. It doesn't quite put out the heavy smoke as I expected but still work well. You can fill this think with pellets, set your temperature and walk away !!!!!!! It will burn all night and more on a single load of pellets.
Pros: Sturdy, long burn times !!

Love having both direct and indirect heat, as it works great for searing, slow cooking and smoking. Temp readings seem accurate and everything works as advertised. Tried and failed to put it together myself...not because it is complex, but because it is so heavy. Make sure and have a friend available. Also, it is delivered via pallet, so be prepared that if you don't have a pallet jack as it is impossible to move it from where it's delivered (until it is constructed). An instruction cd is provided, but instructions are also available on YouTube if you're using a tablet.

A little disappointed no cover is available without having to go back separately to the manufacturer. Also the temperature gauge on the door does not reflect the thermostat temperature setting within +/- 10 degrees. Communications with the manufacturer is non-existent.
Pros: Easy to Assemble, Sturdy
Cons: Difficult to Clean

don't have one yet but will!!!

Don't have the pellet Grill yet but will. We have had a pellet stove for many years customer service alone should make you want one of these. We have looked at other pellet grills and they don't even line up against this grill and it's features. This is built to be a grill you keep for a life. If it's like our pellet stove it's easy to service repair and if your having trouble it's backed up by a great company. We started saving for ours today!

Love the unique design of super hot grill with separator for smoking. Wanted a quality smoker but didn't want to buy a second grill for searing. This has both in a single unit, so saves me money and space. Need to find a quality cover. Unit is heavy and USA made!
Pros: Durable, Easy to Assemble, Easy to Clean, Sturdy, Large Cooking Space, Superior Craftsmanship
