Pellet Grill Cleanout is a big Ash Deal
Are you ready to kick-ash and summer grilling?Â In the game of life there are things you do because you want to do them and other things you do only cause you gotta.Â Believe me this is going somewhere.Â Pellet smoking is manly, fun, easier than ever and the food tastes great. Â Men love spending time with their smoking hot grillfriends. Â The problem is, that like many things, from changing the oil in your car to sharpening an axe, you have to take the time to maintain your stuff to get the best results.Â Pellet grilling is no different and has to be maintained to get a great end product.Â Over time ash, soot, and grease build up in the bottom of your grill and the performance starts to tank.Â Ash builds and floats around onto food, lightup can become more difficult or worse not light at all, and grease / smoke build up as well as the ash piles up.
Everybody kind of knows that at some point they have to kick ash.Â Grill ash that is.Â The problem is this, as much as you want peak performance from your grill it still sucks to clean it out.Â Guys donât really like doing the boring, leftover work at the house.Â Who really wants to wheel the trash out to the curb? Â Do you really like mowing the grass?Â Â Â If youâre thinking in your head that you enjoy that youâre lying to yourself.Â Maybe there are exceptions, but the point is that given the choice youâd rather eat good food, hang out with loved ones, or watch a game instead of cleaning out a grill.
To clean ash out of a pellet grill there are about 10 different sticky, greasy items to take out of the grill just to get to the bottom of the barrel and begin ash cleanup.Â Once all that is out itâs time to roll out the wet/dry vac (if you have one) and begin to suck up the soot, ash, etc that has built up in the bottom of your grill.Â Then comes clothing, hand and dry vac cleanup.Â There must be a better way.Â As of a few years ago this was the only way to clean out a pellet grill.Â Every brand and model was the same.Â Â New technology from Camp Chef has changed all that.
While your buddy next door spends the next 30 minutes to an hour cleaning out his Traeger, your Camp Chef grill has a patented ash clean out in the bottom that releases ash and soot from the grill in seconds.Â
So hereâs the challenge, kick your neighborâs ash for real by cleaning a pellet grill out and grilling a meal in the same time it takes him to âkick ashâ.
