Grills has 30 years of grill manufacturing experience. We believe that pellet grills are the easiest, most flavorful way to achieve great BBQ.
At Grills, we combine simple design, premium materials, and honest pricing to bring you pellet grills and grilling tools that have won over professional and amateur cooks alike. All Grills pellet grills have 8-in-1 versatility.
That means you can grill, bake, roast, sear, braise, barbecue, char-grill, and smoke your food, all with the same grill. Our mission is to bring all homes the best wood-fired taste and world-class outdoor cooking experience.
I can’t think of another grill brand that has appeared virtually out of nowhere and gained so much attention as fast as Grills. Bursting on to the pellet grill scene back in 2017, Grills raised almost half a million dollars from 1407 backers on the crowdfunding platform Indigo.
They had quietly been manufacturing more expensive grills for companies like Trailer before deciding to sell their own brand direct to the public. In this review, we’ll take a detailed look at their most popular pellet grills, and see how they compare with other brands like Trailer.
If you are familiar with how pellet grills work, feel free to skip ahead. In our video review of the Grills 700E we show how this popular design works, and what we think of it after grill and smoking on it.
While they are often called “pellet grills ”, I really think of them as smokers or ovens since they specialize in maintaining steady temperatures over long hours. Pellet Grills are great for people who don’t want the hassle or mess of cooking with charcoal but want more smoke flavor and convenience than gas or electric smokers can provide.
Grills currently sell four main models of pellet grill in a few different configurations. Starting with the 450A which comes with (you guessed it) 450 square inches of cooking space, and going all the way up to the new ZPG-1000 you have plenty of choice with different color configurations and storage options.
The 7002E is the base version of the most popular model, with a total cooking area of 700 square inches and a 20-pound hopper. The difference between these two models is a bit confusing, the main thing we could find is the 700E has a top temp of 475° while the 700D maxes out at 450°.
In terms of price, you’re looking at roughly half the cost of the Trailer for a similar set of features. Everything ships in two carefully wrapped packages and assembly is fairly straight forward with detailed instructions provided.
This is likely in response to the success Trailer has been experiencing with their WiFire functionality on their latest Pro Series, Ironwood and Timberline pellet grill ranges. So with that in mind, I wanted to discuss which pellet grill manufacturers I feel currently offer some of the best Wi-Fi /App solutions for different budgets.
I’ve previously written a couple of articles on what I think are the best pellet grills currently available for under $500, under $1,000 and under $2,000. Hence, its probably not the best idea to make the choice of your next pellet grill/smoker purely on its Wi-Fi /App features.
Well, some pellet grill manufacturers offer control panels with both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, Camp Chef being an example. However, there are several pellet grill brands (Cuisinart and Pit Boss) who are fitting control panels which purely feature Bluetooth connectivity.
You can also set timers and alarms along with monitoring and adjusting the temperature of the grill. Well, you have several options from Trailer, Camp Chef, REC TEC and Weber to choose from.
Grille Grills will be introducing a Wi-Fi control panel retrofit before the end of 2020. First off, let’s discuss Camp Chef, and their Woodwind pellet grills and alternatively their Gen 2 Wi-Fi control panel.
Camp Chef do now fit a Wi-Fi -enabled control panel onto their budget Smokers range. Now, the Weber SmokerFire pellet grills the EX4 and EX6 both feature 4 meat probe ports and Wi-Fi /App functionality.
I have not idea, the previous generation Trailer Pro Controller featured two meat ports. Hence, if you want to monitor multiple cuts of meat via a Wi-Fi /App, Trailer grills are not currently your best option.
For instance, it offers the most comprehensive collection of recipes and downloadable grill settings. I have a post comparing Trailer WiFire vs Camp Chef Connect if you are interested in a more detailed comparison.
The final Wi-Fi /App pellet grill option under $1,000 you could consider is a REC TEC. While the REC TEC app may be relatively simple/basic compared to the video recipes etc included within the Trailer WiFire app it provides the core fundamentals to monitor and adjust the temperature of the grill during operation.
The REC TEC control panel does feature two meat probe ports through. This is a relatively compact grill, however its full stainless steel construction, hence the higher price point.
The Google Play Store reviews aren’t any better, hence it appears Memphis Grills have got their work cut out for them. Hence, this is an example of a great pellet grill/smoker with its fundamental cooking capabilities, however, its Wi-Fi /App performance, not so much.
Furthermore, as discussed above in reference to Weber and Memphis Grills check the reviews on the Google Play and Apple Store for the specific manufacturers’ App. Thanks for reading, I hope you found this look at Wi-Fi -enabled pellet grills for different budgets interesting/useful.
