What is Slide & Grill Technology?

You may have seen a few of our pellet grills launch with Slide and Grill Technology. While it sounds fancy you might be wondering, "What exactly is this cool feature, and do I need it?

The typical anatomy of a traditional wood pellet grill and/or smoker starts with a fire pot at the base. Above that lies the deflector plate, the drip tray, and finally the grill grates where your food sits. However, Slide and Grill equipped Camp Chef pellet grills have a mobile deflector plate that allows you to customize your grilling experience.

Slide & Grill Technology

The knob is located on the left side of the pellet grill.  Simply pull the knob to unleash direct flame grilling. Slide the knob back in place to switch back to a traditional low and slow smoking method.


Infusing your food with smoke provides a delicious and unique flavor that's all its own. But, having the versatility and ability to utilize an open flame broil is unlike anything on the market. Diversify dinner by slow smoking a rack of ribs-or turn the temperature up, slide the deflector plate over, and flame cook burgers for the entire family.
