Pursuit 20 Portable Pellet Grill is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Little smoker ! I bought this little smoker 6 months ago when my electric smoker finally died. I wanted to first try the smaller one to see if I really liked pellet smokers before I bought a more expensive one. I absolutely love it! The one complaint is the meat probes are pretty cheap. My first one went out after 3 uses (they give you two) and replacements through Camp Chef are $30 + shipping. It is also a lot heavier than I thought it would be. Other than that, it works like a charm and is hands down better than my old Masterbuilt electric smoker. The best feature over Traeger is the ash trap removal door. That alone sold me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality & features I bought mine in June 2019, and as of Dec 1 have run more than 6 bags (120#) of pellets through it. Ribs, pork butts, sausage, meatloaf, meatballs, thick chops & steaks, prime rib, salmon, wings, beer-can and bricked chicken, kabobs ... Still doing research before tackling a brisket (thanks Franklin & Tom). The unit is easy to start & heats-up well. Maintains fairly consistent temperature. Develops great smoke ring & flavour (yes I'm Canadian). I rarely use the 'slide & sear' except when camping (I have other grills for high-heat searing). Lumberjack brand pellets leave very little ash. Cleaning is straighforward and should not be neglected: shopvac the dust out of the base + apply degreaser / brush all-around. The patio cover is good quality; I'm waiting for them to offer an insulating blanket for cold-weather cooking (please?). Others have commented on portability: Yes it is 100# and a little akward to fold-up etc. - but I say it's worth it vs alternatives - folks are always very happy to see it / enjoy the resulting food at a campsite / tailgater. No Regrets - I remain very very satisfied with my Campchef Pursuit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Solid Small Pellet Grill This is a great smaller pellet grill. It is by no means lightweight or poorly made. It is heavy, but I can move it by myself with the solid leg/wheel structure. Overall the construction is solid. Nothing feels flimsy or lightweight. Setup is fairly easy, removing all the packing and protection takes about 1/2 an hour. Getting the legs extended makes it a lot easier to setup. Make sure you read the directions about how to unlock the legs top and bottom! After it is up, it is easier to attach the handle and get everything unpacked. Attaching the handle is about the only assembly required. Everything else is already assembled. All stickers are attached with magnets and come off easily with no residue. There is plenty of room inside for 2-3 chickens in upright or lying down, a turkey or a couple of pork shoulders. The startup and process of cooking is clear from the manual and easily accessed control panel. The 10# hopper seems sufficient for 6-8 hours of slow cooking. Higher temperatures will require more monitoring of the pellet level as it burns through them faster. There isn't an easy way to empty the hopper if you want to switch pellets. I've seen small shop vacuum solutions that is probably the best way to go to clean out the hopper. You'd have to remove the top grid to do it by hand or vacuum them out. It would be nice to have an empty function like some of the larger Camp Chef grills. Cooking doesn't seem to add as strong of a smoke flavor as some of my other smokers. You may want to buy a small wood chip box that sits on the grill, and provides some more direct smoke if you like the stronger flavor. The included probes plug in easily and seem to work well to monitor the meat temperature from the control panel. The bottle openers works well! I did purchase a cover for it and that is essential for weather protection of both the electronics and metal parts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice unit. I bought this a month ago and am very happy with it. I like the ash dump and the 2 temp probes. It is simple to use and takes your food to a higher level.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Nicer than I had anticipated. Works well and the features are great. It's a bit heavy for one person to handle as far as being "portable", but I prefer the superior quality so it's a non-issue for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great grill This is my first pellet grill . I was looking for something that i can take with me on the vacation and also use at home . I researched all major player's grills for about a month and ended up with two choices : GMG Davey Crockett and Camp Chef Pursuit. GMG wifi feature seems like a great idea but i have read many reviews that state this feature is buggy and often doesn't work . Also Gmg grill looked smaller than Pursuit. The Pursuit is big enough to cook two 13lb briskets at the same time . So far i smoked pork butt , ribs, baby back ribs , brisket , flat iron steaks , hamburgers and everything comes out juicy and delicious. I have used the grill when the temperature outside was in the teens and temperature of the grill was pretty stable + - 15 degrees from preset 225 . I am very happy with the purchase and would recommend it wholeheartedly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great grill!! this is our first pellet grill and we could not be happier. Easy to move and set up. the cooking area was perfect for two slabs of ribs on the top rack. Start up and temp control were spot on. Nice smoke flavor at the end. Pellet consumption for six hours of run time seemed minimal.
