Default Camp Chef pellet grill

Looking at this one, specifically. Would be for the farm and see fairly minimal use so don't need to spend $$$.

Anyone have one? Reviews look pretty good...Would probably have a gas grill to compliment it for faster/higher temp cooks.

Good to hear. It looks like a great buy at that price.

Been looking at this and rec tec. Leaning towards rec tec and getting a new grill to supplement. The camp chef does have a gas sear box that has me on the fence....

I saw the sear box..pretty cool, but I think another gas grill would be a better option for us. My buddy has a Rec Tec and loves it, but you are paying double (or more) from the little I've researched them.

Your right. This would be my main smoker so I like the 6 year warranty and the additional size. That is a really good price on the CC. Decisions, decisions

If you're gonna buy a pellet smoker and crank it over 225, be prepared to buy pellets by the pallet load.

Don't get me wrong, i like my green mountain but wow, you can go through some pellets!!

I bought the rec tec recently and love it. I made the best ribs and tri tip in my life on it the first and second time I used it. I haven't used it as a grill yet but cranked it up to full and it was bouncing around 535. When you set the rec tec to a temperature it stays right there all day long. I have read that some people think a pellet grill doesn't smoke enough, on the tri tips I did last week I used the extreme smoke button and both my wife and I thought it was perfect. I have 3 cooks on it as well as testing it at high heat and haven't even gone through a full hopper of pellets yet.

Most briskets take about 9 hours. Never had to add pellets to the hopper on my Traeger

Have a rec tec and one similar to camp chef. Rec tec has a more consistent temperature across the whole cooking surface and seems to be built with a little higher quality parts.
