What customers say about "Key Specs"
Smoke Hollow PS2415 Pellet Grill and Smoker
  • An awesome pellet grill. Use it all the time highly recommend
  • Nothing burns, nothing dries out, and the only time you even have to look at it is on a long cook to refill the wood bin.
  • It did a fantastic job! during the seasoning of the grill (on high for 30 minutes it got up to 520 degrees! grilled ribs at 400. very pleased
  • Best Pellet Grill on the Market for the money. You can't beat this value anywhere.
  • This grill was a gift to myself I always wanted a smoker and took me a while to find one that was efficient and easy to use.
Traeger TFB42LZBC Lil Tex Elite Pellet Grill and Smoker
  • It's nice because it has a factory mounting location and adds working surface but it looks and feels cheap to me.
  • This is a great product for cold weather cooking. They suggest you only use this on temps below 35* but let me tell you that you will go through less pellets and the temp will hold much better.
  • I would highly recommend this blanket for anyone cooking outdoors in temps below 35 degrees.
  • Holding temp better and using less pellets as well. Great buy
  • Only down side is that the temp tops out at 450ish, but really if I need to sear something at that heat I’ll do it on the stove anyway. It’ll be the last grill you will ever need.

What customers say about "Construction"
Smoke Hollow PS2415 Pellet Grill and Smoker
  • The door and all hardware is rock solid compared to the camp chief brand! I would say the quality is equal to traeger!
  • Very sturdy construction. Easy setup. So far I have cooked (3) pork loins, (3) tip roasts, and a 10lb brisket.
  • The grill is very nicely constructed and easy to assemble. All the parts went together easily and lined up perfect.
  • Highly recommend very well built and perfect for someone with no experience using a smoker.

What customers say about "Features"
Smoke Hollow PS2415 Pellet Grill and Smoker
  • The digital temp control is fantastic.
  • I love the fact that it doesn't flare up like a regular grill. You can control the smoke easily and give the food as much smoke flavor as you desire.
  • Difficult to empty ash. No instructions or tray for DIRECT HEAT for browning. Needs a cooking instruction book INCLUDED
  • Temperature control is key when cooking anything but especially when cooking low and slow but with fluctuations this extreme you don't have much control if any.
Traeger TFB42LZBC Lil Tex Elite Pellet Grill and Smoker
  • Great addition for temp control in all seasons and reduction of amount of pellets used due to the addition of insulation
  • Fabulous. You can control the temperature and walk away.
  • We got this grill toe replace a propane Weber. What a difference, temperature control, no more propane tanks to lug in and out of the car and great flavor.
  • The pellets feed in automatically and the digital controller keeps the temp close to where you set it.
  • The bad news...after a handful of uses, the digital control unit shorted out.
