  • Gift Guide for the Emergency Prepper

    Who Says a Present Can't be Practical?

    Do you have a prepper on your Christmas list this year? Whether they’ve been collecting emergency prep supplies for years or they’re just starting out, you can help them add a few items this season. Camp Chef stoves, ovens, and water heaters will be welcome additions to any prepper’s collection—you might want to snag one for yourself while you’re at it. Read on to see some of our favorite emergency prep gift items.

    1. Outdoor Oven

    The portable Outdoor Oven is beloved by preppers everywhere because of its versatility. In the oven, you can bake all the comforts of home, from cinnamon rolls to your grandmother’s bread recipe. On the top, the two burners allow you to boil water or grill food. In one portable cooker, you can pretty much do it all.

    2. Butane One Burner Stove

    When it comes to portable power, there’s no match to our Butane One Burner Stove. The fuel canister fits within the stove, so it’s easy to bring anywhere. The single burner puts out about 8,000 BTU, which is comparable to your kitchen stove at home. This is a great item for single preppers who would only need to cook for a couple of people at one time.

    3. Explorer Two-Burner Stove

    If your prepper has quite a few people in their family, they might want something a little bigger than a single burner stove. Our Explorer Two-Burner Stove has been setting the standard for outdoor cooking for years. The removable legs and folding windscreen make this stove easily portable, while two 30,000 BTU burners let you cook whatever you want and boil water with ease. All you need are a few cast iron dishes, a griddle, or any other stove accessories to complete the system.

    4. Hot Pot

    One of the most important parts of emergency preparedness is ensuring access to clean water. The Hot Pot is the perfect way to boil mass amounts of water at one time. The aluminum construction makes it lightweight, and the pour spout is convenient for drinking and washing.

    5. Stryker Stove

    If you’re interested in a 72-hour kit emergency preparedness gift, then the Stryker Stove is the way to go. It is small, incredibly lightweight, and ready to go wherever you need it. With the unique heat ring technology, the stove uses fuel more efficiently and boils water faster. This is a great gift to add to a backpack of MREs.

    6. Portable Water Heater

    Who says you can’t be comfortable in an emergency? The portable water heater is an excellent way to enjoy a hot shower, even in the middle of nowhere. It runs off of propane, so you can use the same fuel for your stove and your water heater. Your emergency prepper probably hasn’t thought of adding something like this to his or her collection, but it’s sure to be a hit gift.

    Give a gift this year that’s as practical as it is fun. Choose one of the items above, or start shopping for other emergency prep equipment now.

  • What the Heck is a Stove System?

    More than Just a Stove

    For over 25 years, we’ve been designing a better way to cook outdoors. Over all this time, we’ve made a huge variety of outdoor cooking gear. But our staple product from the start has been our propane camp stoves. Obviously, their rugged, durable design has a lot to do with their popularity; other features like powerful burners, removable legs, and matchless ignition have also had a hand in keeping our classic stoves at the top of the industry. However, there is one thing about our stoves that truly steals the show: they aren’t stoves.

    Okay, so they are stoves in the literal sense. But they aren’t just stoves. We created the stove system to fulfill all of your outdoor cooking needs. Our armada of accessories alongside each of our stoves makes it so that you can enjoy all your favorite meals outdoors just as easily as you enjoy them indoors—all one cooker. How does that work? Let us explain.

    Choose Your System

    More than just a stoveFlat top griddle, BBQ grill box, Artisan outdoor ovenAt Camp Chef, we have two separate cooking systems: 14-inch and 16-inch. You will often see these numbers on our stoves and accessories to show you to which system each product belongs. The measurements refer to the depth of the stove (front to back). Our 14-inch system includes mainly two-burner stoves and accessories with a 14-inch depth; our 16-inch system includes mainly three-burner stoves and accessories with a 16-inch depth. Starting to make sense?

    Now, why the different systems? One of our priorities at Camp Chef is offering you a better way to cook where and what you want, for however many people you have in your group. Some outdoor chefs like to keep things simple with two burners and two accessories, or a single large accessory. On the other hand, many others love having a third burner for an extra accessory to open up their cooking options.

    Mix and Match Accessories

    After you’ve decided on the size of your system, it’s time to add your choice of stove accessories. To give you the freedom to cook what you want, we offer a variety of accessories, including BBQ boxes, outdoor ovens, griddles, Dutch ovens, skillets, and more.

    Our professional grill boxes are awesome for grilling veggies, kabobs, burgers, brats, and more. They feature cast iron grill grates, so you can even sear your meat.

    As you might expect, our outdoor ovens are perfect for baking pizza wherever you go. However, you can also bake cookies, brownies, open-faced sandwiches, and even meat.

    Our griddles come pre-seasoned, so they’re ready to cook as soon as you are. They are among the most versatile of cooking accessories. You can make bacon, stir fry, eggs, pancakes, burgers, and more all on one surface.

    Dutch ovens and skillets—or any of our other cast iron accessories—are the Swiss army knife of your stovetop accessories. They can do so much. Baking, frying, searing…the list goes on. All of our cast iron pieces are pre-seasoned, so there’s no hassle after you take it out of the box.

    By mixing and matching all of these products, there is almost no limit to what you can make for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Seriously. Imagine bacon and eggs in the morning, pizza at lunch, and philly cheese steak sandwiches for dinner—all from a single stove.

    That’s what our stove systems are all about.

    Cook What You Want

    With so much cooking power and flexibility, you can cook what you love to eat no matter where you are. We’ve compiled a small list of our top recipe picks, all of which you can make using you 14-inch or 16-inch system. If you have other ideas, let us know in the comments.

    • Spicy Grilled Shrimp Kabobs • Chocolate Pumpkin Skillet Brownies • Stuffed Venison Backstrap • Finger-Lickin’ Fried Chicken • Pina Colada Burger • Deep Fried Oreos • Artisan Margherita Pizza

  • How to Care for Your Griddle

    Griddle Care & Maintenance

    Most of our professional griddles come with a True-Seasoned Finish, just like all of our cast iron. To keep this finish in tip-top condition, your griddle needs a little TLC every now and then. By following the guide below, you will help keep your griddle clean, prevent rust, and build up the glass-like finish to keep food from sticking.

    Temperature Management

    Giving your griddle time to pre-heat properly will ensure you’re getting the best cooking performance possible. Start by setting your heat to Medium or Med-Low for about 5 minutes. This should bring the griddle surface temperature to about 350°-400° F, depending on the weather and environment. Then turn the heat to Med-Low or Low for 2-3 minutes for uniform heat across the entire cooking surface. The steel heats up quickly but cools slowly, so you’ll have plenty of heat to work with even after you turn down the burners. You’re ready to get cooking.

    Managing the heat on your griddle is important to prevent any possible damage. While the steel is strong and durable, you should only use Low or Medium heat settings. This is especially important if you want to use different heat settings on a large griddle that covers multiple burners. You have the capability to warm a tortilla on one side and cook a fajita mix on the other, but you want to keep both settings on Medium or lower.

    Cleaning

    After each use, clean off any food particles while the griddle is still warm. You might want to use a metal spatula or chain mail scrubber to remove stubborn bits. Then wash with hot water, mild dish soap (never use abrasive detergent), or our Cast Iron Cleaner. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Never scour or use a dishwasher, as this could chip the nice, seasoned finish you’re going for.

    Seasoning

    Once your griddle is clean, slowly warm it up again on your stove. Apply a thin layer of Cast Iron Conditioner or cooking oil. We recommend Cast Iron Conditioner because it has a palm oil base, which boasts a longer shelf life than any other natural oil. Be sure that the entire surface, including all corners, have been coated thoroughly. This will ensure that all surfaces of your cookware will be properly seasoned. This finish helps protect the steel or cast iron from rust and contributes to a nonstick cooking surface. Let your griddle cool, then wipe off excess conditioner or oil with a clean cloth.

    Storage

    After your griddle is clean, dry, and seasoned, you will need to store it in a dry, clean area. You can use one of our carry bags, specifically designed to hold your professional griddle. If you store it in one of these bags long-term, leave the zipper open 2-4 inches so the metal doesn’t “sweat.” This will prevent rusting.

    Pro Tips

    • • Be sure that your griddle is level before cooking, so that any juices or grease will drain properly. To test your griddle’s angle, pour a cup of water on the corner farthest from the grease drain and see where it flows.
    • • Use our grease cup accessory for an easy clean-up.
    • • If you need to adjust the heat on your griddle, do so a little at a time. The metal will heat quickly and cool slowly.
    • • Lightly oil the griddle before each use while it’s heating up. You can use Camp Chef Conditioner or cooking oil.
    • • The steel will continue to antique and darken with each use—it’s okay for it to accumulate a patina.
    • • Rusty, metallic tastes or discolored foods are signs of inadequate seasoning or may result from cooking heavily acidic foods. If this occurs, wash the griddle thoroughly and re-season.
    • • Check out all the cooking accessories we offer to go along with your griddle. You’ll be cooking like a pro in no time.

    Griddle Clean & Care
  • How to Use Your Outdoor Pizza Oven Like a Pro

    So you’ve just unpacked your Italia Artisan Pizza Oven or Outdoor Oven Accessory, and you’re ready to get cooking. First of all, congratulations on your new purchase. You’re in for plenty of goodies like backyard pizzas (here’s a dough recipe), skillet brownies (we’ve made those too), plank salmon (yummmm), and more. But before you fire up the oven and toss some food onto the stone, we wanted to share a few pro tips with you. These will help you get the most out of your new outdoor oven, no matter what meal you’re cooking. Ready? Here we go.

     

    Pro Tip #1

    Your stove’s Low and Medium settings will give you all the heat you need for your Outdoor Oven Accessory.

     

    Pro Tip #2

    Just like a true brick oven or your home oven, preheating your outdoor oven is essential. Always allow 10 minutes or more for your oven to get to the right temperature.

     

    Pro Tip #3

    Temperatures and cooking times will vary depending on outside temperatures, weather conditions, and what type of food you’re cooking. For example, frozen pizza will cook differently than a pizza made from scratch or store-bought dough.

     

    Pro Tip #4

    Keep an eye on the internal air temperature by looking at the built-in temperature gauge on the top of the pizza oven. Internal air heat will help melt cheese, soften toppings, and bake the top of your pizza crust. This temperature will react quickly when you change your heat setting or remove the metal oven cover.

     

    Pro Tip #5

    The pizza stone temperature will rise more slowly than the internal air temperature, but it will eventually become the hottest part of the oven. This is where most of the cooking happens (and how you get a crispy pizza crust).

      pizzas in the camp oven

    Pro Tip #6

    Use an infrared or cooking surface thermometer to monitor your pizza stone’s temperature.

     

    Pro Tip #7

    The ideal baking temperature for artisan pizza is 500° F to 550° F. Other kinds of pizza are best at 400° F.

     

    Pro Tip #8

    To melt cheese or other toppings as you remove your pizza, lift toward the top of the oven and hold for a few seconds before taking it out.

     

    Pro Tip #9

    Cast iron is perfect for baking breads or desserts in an outdoor oven.

     

    Pro Tip #10

    We have a few accessories just for cooking pizza in your new outdoor oven. Check out our pizza peel, pizza spatula, and rocking cutter to complete your pizza chef collection.

  • 8 Ways to Step Up Your Tailgate Party This Weekend

    With football season right around the corner (you can almost hear the kickoff whistle echoing from the stadium), it’s time to haul your tailgating gear out of storage. Chances are you have a trusty stove that’s both portable and powerful, a heavy duty cooler for maximum beer-holding capacity, and a collection of tried-and-true recipes. Or maybe this is your first season, and you’re trying to decide what you need to kick things off with a bang. Whether you’re a newbie or a veteran, you can’t reach MVP status until you’re bringing these items and accessories with you every weekend.

     

    1. Extra bag of chips or pack of drinks

    Obviously, you should plan to bring plenty of food. But take special care and set aside an extra bag of chips or six pack. This inexpensive investment can go miles as a peace offering to your tailgate neighbors, especially if you’re a newcomer. Bring it by their tent when you arrive with no strings attached. You’ll make a few friends—and you’ll have someone to ask for help when you realize that you forgot the mustard.

     

    2. Frozen water bottles

    Filling your cooler with ice is great for cans of soda or beer, but when it comes to keeping your food cold, you need something that won’t create a puddle. You can buy ice packs for this—they’ll stay dry and cold. However, the next-level strategy is to pack your cooler with frozen water bottles. Not only will this keep food cool and dry, you’ll also have a half dozen refreshing waters to drink later that afternoon.

     

    3. Wireless thermometer

    As the party chef, you could find yourself pinned to your stove all day, watching the meat like a helicopter mom. If you’re paranoid about hitting the right temperature, you aren’t leaving yourself any time for fun. And last time we checked, tailgating is all about having a good time. With a wireless thermometer, you can enjoy the party and keep a close eye on your meat at the same time. Set the desired temperature, insert the meat probe, listen for the notification alarm, and dominate at cornhole until it’s time to eat.

     

    peanut butter burger4. Crazy condiments

    Ketchup, mustard, mayo, and relish might be classics, but they aren’t your only options. Don’t be afraid to up your tailgating game with some more…experimental condiments. Spice it up with BBQ sauce, teriyaki, ranch, and more. If you really want to score with your guests, bust out a homemade spread like artichoke pesto sauce or peanut butter sauce (yes, peanut butter). Trust us, your taste buds and tailgating buddies will thank you!

     

    5. Outdoor screen and projector

    You might have a portable TV to watch football games throughout the day; an outdoor movie screen takes that concept to the next level of awesome. You’ll need to bring a power source for your projector, but from there it’s a simple set up. Imagine all your favorite games showing on the big screen instead of your tiny computer. You’ll be the star of the parking lot.

     

    6. First Aid Kit

    Okay, okay. This might seem like a no-brainer, but the tailgating pros always put safety first. You never know when you might need some burn ointment after a hot splash of grease or a bandage after flag football gets too competitive.

     

    7. Hand-Washing Station

    Once the eating, drinking, playing, and high-fiving is done, you will want to be able to wash and dry your hands. Hand sanitizer is a quick, easy solution. But you can take it a step further with a bottle of hand soap and a 5-gallon beverage cooler as a wash station. Leave a large bucket underneath (or your dirty dishes tote, see below) to catch the soapy water, and voila! You have yourself a full tailgate hand-washing station. For added convenience, hook a paper towel rack onto your stove or grill.

     

    8. Empty plastic tote or collapsible garbage can

    When the burgers are eaten and the beers are gone, you only want to think about one thing: winning the big game. What you don’t want to think about is washing a pile of dirty spatulas, knives, trays, cutting boards, plates, and other scattered dishes. Cue the empty tub: you can pile everything into it without getting your car dirty, then forget about it until after the game. If you don’t have a spare tote, try using a collapsible garbage can like this one.  Either way, the idea is the same: clean-up in a snap.

  • A Buyer’s Guide to Pellet Grills

    Six Things to consider before buying a Pellet Grill

    You’ve been thinking about it again, haven’t you? You can almost smell it now, that savory scent of smoked meats wafting through the air. You can almost taste the unparalleled flavor of smoked ribs, brisket, beef, chicken, and more. Just thinking about it all makes your mouth water. Finally, you settle on the matter. You have to upgrade your grill to something that delivers more flavor and versatility. You’ve decided you have to have a pellet grill. But before you rush online or over to your nearest retailer, there are plenty of important details to consider when searching for the right pellet grill. With this in mind, read on to learn what you should look for and why.

     

    Why a Pellet Grill?Pellet Grill

    Perhaps you haven’t quite reached the point outlined in the hypothetical scenario above. Maybe you’re considering a pellet grill for the first time, or maybe you’ve heard your friends or colleagues talking about them and you’ve decided to research the matter yourself. Great, that’s why we’re starting this article by answering this important question: why are pellet grills such a great choice for barbequing? Whether you know the answer already or not, this brief buyer’s guide will both create and reinforce a decision to invest in pellet grilling, and it will go over all the matters you need to consider when searching for the right pellet grill.

    For starters, pellet grills are fueled by burning small compressed pellets of real wood, and are perhaps the single best barbequing option for the backyard barbeque fan. It’s important that you choose pellets wisely to keep ash off the food and save money. Read more about premium pellets in our article “Taste the Premium Wood Pellet Difference”. Pellet grills are better than traditional grills for three distinct reasons, and those reasons are: flavor, ease-of-use, and versatility. Together these characteristics make a pellet grill an exceptional investment in your barbequing future. There’s no replacement for or equal to the flavor of smoked meats, and this is something easily accommodated with a pellet grill. If you think the only way to produce quality, smoked meats is by using a large and elaborate stick (log) burning grill like the pros use, think again.

    -Flavor-

    A pellet grill produces the same, great, smoked flavor as the large, aforementioned alternative, and it does so with far less hassle, which brings us to the next selling point: ease-of-use. You see, if you’re going to smoke meats with a large and expensive stick burner, then you better be well versed in what you’re doing, and you better be ready to devote a lot of time to monitoring your cooking. With traditional smokers and stick burners, you have to truly monitor the entire process in order ensure that your smoker remains within the proper temperature range. What’s more, you have to know how to change the temperature when it begins to fluctuate, when to add another log, adjust air flow, etc. Learning this art takes a lot of time, and perfecting it takes even longer.

    -Ease of Use- 

    Pellet Grilling

    With a pellet grill, however, you can forget about having to deal with any of that. Pellet grills work with the push of a button and the dial of a knob. And that’s no exaggeration. Push-button ignition lights the flame that’ll keep your pellets burning, and arrows or knobs are used to adjust the temperature setting. The right kind of pellet grill is extremely accurate with its temperatures too. Variances in your set temperature are likely to be as little as 10 degrees, give or take. In addition to being easier to use than a stick burner, pellet grills are also much easier to manage than your common charcoal grill. Make no mistake, your average stick burner or charcoal grill does offer great, smoky flavor to whatever your smoking/grilling, but it all comes at the cost of long hours monitoring and tweaking the flame and temperature, not to mention it makes for a considerable amount of cleanup too.

    -Versatility-

    Imagine all the flavor of traditional smoking or charcoal grilling without the hassle associated with either, and you’ve just imagined what a pellet grill offers. It’s the cheat mode of grilling. Pellet grills come with all the convenience of gas grilling, without the need to store or refill on propane, and all the flavor of traditional smokers. Subsequently, they also offer far more versatility than traditional smokers, charcoal, or gas grills. Gas grills, for example, are fine for cooking hot dogs, burgers, and steaks (albeit they still lack the flavor of real wood barbeques) but if you’ve ever wanted to cook something bigger, like a whole chicken, your gas grill isn’t going to cut it. This is often the same case with charcoal grills, except that they add great flavor. Conversely, a stick burning smoker isn’t something you’d ever use for cooking a few burgers or chicken thighs. Pellet grills, on the other hand, can handle both smoking and grilling jobs. Whether you want to slow cook/smoke your meats, or you want to quickly grill up some patties or chicken drums, a pellet grill is a convenient answer. Whichever option you go with, you get savory, real-wood flavor. With all the different pellet options available, you can cook with convenience and variety, from hickory to Applewood, pecan, classic alder, and more.

    What to Look for in a Pellet Grill

    Now that it’s apparent why pellet grills are so great to use in your barbequing, it’s equally important to know what to look for in a pellet grill. Consideration of the subject begs to question: are all pellet grills created equal? The answer: no, they aren’t. As is the case with just about everything, there are varying levels of quality and features from one pellet grill to the next, and it’s important to know why quality is a must and what features are necessary for a grill to be a great pellet grill.

    -Quality-

    Pellet Grilling

    Speaking on the subject of quality, it’s worth mentioning that quality is always important. Some grills may look real pretty on the outside, but on the inside, they lack the same attention to detail. Sometimes, a grill will be constructed of high grade stainless steel externally while its guts are made of lower-grade metals. This is problematic not for aesthetic reason, but for functionality and longevity. In other words, if the heart and soul of your grill isn’t made well, you’ll burn through it over time, literally.

     

     

     

     

    -Functionality and Efficiency-

    Pellet Grill FunctionAs far as functionality is concerned, you want a unit that is well built, with efficiency in mind. There’s a fine balance to strike between encasing a grill (particularly the burn pot) in a sufficient wall of steel verses a grill that’s made bomb proof. If the grill casing is too thin, then it won’t retain heat as well, and as a result, you’ll burn through more pellets, especially in colder temperatures. On the other hand, you can overdo it. A super thick-walled grill (a.k.a. bomb proof) will be too heavy to move around because of the shear weight. If you look at a traditional, industrial-grade smoker, you’ll find that the walls are rather thick, and that’s a necessary thing, in order to regulate temperature. However, since a pellet grill has an internal computer regulating temperature, additional thickness isn’t needed.

    Pellet Grill Blanket

    If you want to take efficiency to an even higher level you can wrap your grill friend in a blanket that will keep her warm year round. That can reduce pellet consumption by up to 50% during the winter months, and save you money year round. Don’t worry, the blanket is built to handle the heat.

     

     

    -Precise Temperature Control-

    Pellet Smoking

    Speaking of temperature-regulating computers, we come to our next point; and that’s temperature control…precise temperature control to be specific. When shopping for a pellet grill, temperature control is a necessity; else you lose the convenience that comes with using a pellet grill. There’s more than one way to approach temperature control, but the commonality among high quality grills is the use of computer-regulated temperature control. Not all manufacturers have durable control units so check out the reviews before buying! Whether it’s PID (proportional, integral, derivative) temperature control or some other equivalent, the name of the game is precision. Fluctuations should be within 10°F, give or take. This mean you want to steer away from grills that boast of heat zones. Heat zones are nothing to boast about. It simply means that the grill is incapable of maintaining a fairly narrow temperature range and instead can only maintain temperature within a broad “zone.” You’ll also want to avoid pellet grills that use baffles or any other manual form of air flow for temperature regulating purposes.

    -Fuel Containment and Cooking Surface- 

    Pellet Hopper

    For a pellet grill, your fuel is pellets, which is great for all the reasons mentioned in the beginning of this article. Being that your fuel is pellets, you’ll want to make sure the pellet grill of your choice has a containment unit (known as a hopper) that is large enough to hold the amount of pellets you’ll need. A good size hopper, somewhat of the standard among good pellet grills, is 18 lbs. With an 18 pound hopper, you can cook for a long time, enough for the long slow-cook times associated with smoking your meats. But if you have a hopper much smaller than this, you’ll have to refill with pellets more often. Another important quality to any grill is the cooking surface. First off, you want a cooking surface that is made of high-quality metal, as already mentioned. But you also want a cooking surface that is sufficiently large for the amount of cooking you’re going to want to do. Camp Chef pellet grills come in a range of sizes, from 429 sq. inches to 875 sq. inches. So whether you’re going to do small amounts or large amounts of smoking and grilling, we have an option for you. Another important thing to consider is looking for a pellet grill with convection style circulation. All Camp Chef Smokepro pellet grills come standard with a continuous convection fan that significantly reduces natural hot spots typical of grills in the marketplace. Think of it as cheat mode. You don’t have to figure out where to place your meat since the temperature is very close no matter where you place it on the grill grates.

    -Accessories-

    • Sear box – The nature of pellet grills make it challenging to get a crisp sear so look into the max temperature, and add-on accessories that give you the ability to sear at high heat. Camp Chef makes a sear box accessory that sears meat at up to 900°F. No pellet grill on the market has a sear that can be compared with the sear produced on Camp Chef’s sear box. The beauty is that you can sear at 900°F, then cook at any temp between 160°F and 500°F. • Patio Cover – Keep your grill and pellets dry the next time it rains with the SmokePro canvas patio cover. • Add-on Racks – Smoke jerky, produce massive amounts of bacon, and quadruple your cooking space on these simple to install racks • SmokePro Insulation Blanket – Trap the heat in with a fireproof blanket and save on pellets

    Pellet Grill Cleaning

    Another very nice feature of pellet grills is their extreme burn efficiency. This is due to the nature of the fuel used to produce the burn. Pellets actually burn far more efficiently than charcoal, and even more efficiently than logs. This means they produce a lot less waste. If you’ve ever used a charcoal grill, then you know that they’re a mess to clean up. The ash box fills quickly and often, requiring frequently cleaning. Real wood burning leaves a lot of char too, and if you’re using a log burner, then you’ll have substantial amounts of clean up to do. Here’s the beauty of burning pellets though. Because the pellets are compressed wood, they’re quite a bit denser than real wood. Because they’re denser, they burn through easier and produce a lot less ash. Camp Chef pellet grills are by far the cleanest burning, real-wood grills available. So you’ll be cleaning out your ash box a whole lot less. As mentioned earlier, it may be only once a year. Whatever the frequency is, you’ll want to get a grill that accommodates very easy cleanup. For example, Camp Chef pellet grills come with a patented Ash Can Cleanout System that is so simple and easy to clean that it becomes a matter of simply detaching a can and dumping it in the garbage. It’s a big ash deal. What’s more, Camp Chef pellet grills have the added feature of a hopper cleanout and purge system too.

    Conclusion and Recap

    After everything we’ve mentioned here, you can see that there is a lot to consider when shopping for a pellet grill. We hope you feel a bit like an expert in pellet grills after reading through this, but for the sake of a brief recap let’s visit the qualifiers of a good pellet grill one more time, in a quick list. Remember, the advantages of a pellet grill are: • Flavor Delivery – nothing can replace that savory smoke flavor. • Ease of Use – getting that smoky flavor the traditional way is difficult and messy, but with a pellet grill, it’s never been easier or cleaner. • Versatility – Charcoal grills are messy, and stick burners are only for really big jobs. The pellet grill, however, can cook your small quantities and large smoke jobs, from burgers and dogs to whole turkeys. Remember, when buying a pellet grill, you’re looking for: • High Quality Construction – you want something built to last, but you don’t want a pellet grill built like a stick burner. • Functionality and Efficiency – you want a grill that isn’t going to go through pellets like there’s no tomorrow. • Precise Temperature Control – temperature control is so important; you want to set and forget. Set the temperature and walk way without babysitting, that’s how easy it should be. • Fuel Containment and Cooking Surface – you need a hopper that’s big enough (around 18 lbs.) and a cooking surface that can handle your plans. • Easy Cleanup – you don’t want a grill that’s high maintenance and takes a lot of work to clean. Now that you know what to look for in a pellet grill take a moment to consider the quality pellet grills we produce here at Camp Chef. We know you’ll love what you find.
