Asmoke Pellet Grill

Recommended Posts

This summer I backed a project on Indiegogo. A portable pellet grill. It seems to be popular with RV / camping crowd. With Covid, that seems to be increasingly popular. It also appeals to people who want to try a pellet grill, or are completely new to grilling. It would be good for single people or small spaces.They started out at $131, went $150 when the campaign closed. They sold about 9,000.

 

It’s kind of a step sister to the Country Traveler smoker.

 

So, I have run a break-in, roasted a chicken, and reverse seared a steak.. There is a slider that opens to allow you to sear right over the crucible. Next up will be a slo and lo, probably ribs.

 

There is independent FB user group. There are lots of YouTube reviews.There have been lots of gripes about delivery and other stuff. I learned a lot about crowdfunding.

 

There are a lot of complaints about auger fires, incorrect wiring , etc. Vocal crowd, but I really can’t say if its a large percentage of users with defects, or operator error. There are a lot of happy backers.

I bought one of those rascals too and I also went with green. I never used the Asmoke pellets and I haven't had an issue with it. Don't know if the pellets are the source of the auger fires, but I wasn't interested in trying them anyways. I have done about 10 or so cooks on it and it works as advertised. It's on Amazon now for $270. I am happy with the thing for the $150 I spent.

Yea, I think there are better choices for $270. But  for camping, or limited space, an option. I ran 1 pound of Asmoke pellets for burn in, no problems. Two cooks with Bear mountain oak.

@JohnnyAppetizerHave you checked out Armadillo Pepper's YouTube channel. He has done several cooks on the Asmoke. Here is a link to his Asmoke play list.

This appears to be a new offering. More features, probably built in the same factory, but different brand. Lower price than the current Asmoke offering.

Recent review compared it to the Asmoke, found it to be an improvement. Still, I'm OK with Asmoke at the early backer price.
