    Any of you guys tried Grilla brand pellet grills and smokers, I'm leaning towards the Chimp model

    Heres a video comparing it to the Traeger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6rg4Gn0yCIs

    Are you looking for portability? Weighing in at 90lbs hardly seems portable vs the 50lb Traeger. Grilla has a good rep. The double wall using air as an insulator sounds like a good feature for cold weather cooking. My camp chef has single wall and they sell an insulated blanket as an option for cold weather cooking.

    I’m sure they all have their good points. But I sure do love my Camp Chef.
    The community, the support, the product, all have been great.
    I’m not doing meats this year but I’m finishing up some smoked 4 cheese mac and cheese as well as some smoked Velveeta chorizo dip to take to dinner right now.

    How do you smoke cheese? Does it melt?

    Also, which model of Camp Chef?

    You are correct!!!Ford or Chevrolet?They all look good.I'm looking at construction as well .I want something with stainless parts.i'm tired of the grills i have had in the past(that had metal parts) Every few years they need new burners and parts, from rusting out.Thengorilla looks to have mostly stainless parts.How is the construction on the Camp Chef. Decisions,Decisions!!!

    You can cold smoke blocks of cheese if you wish, on the CC with a smoke tube.
    The smoked mac and cheese I make with a sauce made from sharp cheddar, gouda, Parmesan, and cream cheese. I make it and put it on the smoker to absorb smoke.
    All pellet smokers are basically a big convection oven. You can cook anything you can come up with. Desserts included.
    I have the ZG, it’s the model dicks sporting goods sells.
    I have a 36” woodwind on my wish list. Along with the foldable pursuit for the camper.

    Not so much portability as I think it's about the right size for what I would be using it for, I dont need a huge one. It looks like a pretty nice unit, of course they all seem to work pretty well, everyone seems to like what they are using, I'm not sure one brand is way better than another.

    Some have different features. Depends on what's important to you. I think you'd be doing yourself a disservice getting anything less than 24" wide. The grills are really versatile and you can get creative with what you do.

    I have the Camp Chef SmokePro DLX24. I had a choice of a propane fueled sear box or griddle side car with it and I chose the sear box. It gets used almost daily.

    Weber has a pellet grill hitting the market soon. They are taking pre-orders starting next month. I think if I were in the market today, the Weber would be on my list

    I’d whole heartedly agree on the minimum size.
    Actually that’s why the 36” Woodwind is on my wish list. I’ve had several examples of where my 24” just wasn’t enough. Most recently was the Labor Day BBQ we held for some family members. I did 3 racks of ribs, burgers, hot dogs and sausages. Along with some cowboy bbq baked beans and a smoked pecan pie for dessert. And simply ran out of space.
    The thing about these pellet grills is how easy it is to turn out really good, quality food. The average backyard BBQer will find themselves trying food they’d never have even considered before.
    Seafood, side dishes, desserts? Sure thing. An 12+ hour overnight smoke to cook up a full pack brisket? No problem, you can even watch the temperatures laying in bed with Camp Chefs new WiFi controller. Just fill the hopper with pellet fuel and it’ll do the rest. Wood fired pizza? Absolutely, throw it on and set the temp up high.
    I’ve had the ZG since Memorial Day weekend 2019. And have used it at least once per week since. I even hauled it to Virginia when we went camping for a week (hence my wish for a Pursuit foldable grill). Here’s the Yukon and ZG while we were down there. Excuse the mess, the CC was having it’s way with a London broil at the time the picture was taken.
    The Yukon is one of Camp Chefs modular stove systems. You can use it as a gas fired stove, or it accepts attachments like griddles, grills and pizza ovens. Some of these attachments can also be used on the sidekick accessory that goes on the right side of the pellet grills.
