had to make the jump. I’ll admit to actually resisting getting a pellet grill. A grill with a plug just seemed foreign and complicated to me. Boy was I wrong!
I’m over the plug issues too. Just plug it in, turn it on, and set the temp– it really is that simple. Within 5 minutes the smoke is coming out of the stack and within 10 minutes the smoke is minimal while the heat steadily climbs to the programmed temps.
The Yoder’s efficiency is matched with its environmental friendliness compared to briquettes or lump charcoal which put off a lot more smoke and soot. The ash in the bottom of the grill after 60 pounds of pellets would not fill a coffee cup. Compare that to the ash from briquettes which would fill a coffee pot!
