abunda_amazon_reviews UPDATED REVIEW: Originally I gave this 5 stars b/c we love the taste that wood burning gives food. EXCEPT, the starter/ignition quit working after 6 months. Upon reading reviews further, I found many that had the same problems. I wouldn't buy this again. ORIGINAL REVIEW: It took about an hour to assemble, but the instructions were clear and concise. We watched a YouTube video on how to do the first burn correctly. I would highly recommend doing that. Also, a valuable tip: Don't turn directly off after using on a high setting. Turn to 180, let the temp drop to around 250 before turning off completely. This will avoid "back burning" of your pellets. Now to the good stuff. We've been using a gas grill forever. I forgot how great wood burning BBQ tastes. We did ribeye cap steaks the first day we put it together and they were the best I've ever eaten. The taste was amazing. Highly recommend this grill. MUCH cheaper than a Traeger (which we bought first and returned b/c pieces were missing and broken and discovered their customer service and standing by their product are non-existent) and works excellently! You won't go wrong with this. UPDATE: We use this grill almost every night. We LOVE it. It is a great purchase. Food tastes so much better than gas/charcoal grills, and it's really easy to use, and cooks food fast without sacrificing flavor or texture. A meat thermometer is a must.;;Reviewed in the United States on April 12, 2019;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;UPDATED review 10/19;;Carol L. Alvarez;;;I've had this grill for a little over the week and am loving it. The assembly took about an hour, and that was only because I put the legs on the wrong way so the shelf holes were pointing out. Make sure you're in a well lit room, unlike me and you shouldn't make this mistake. The included "startup list" steps you through the first startup and tests perfectly, so make sure you follow the list and you'll be cooking in no-time! The attached pictures are prime cut beef ribs I smoked on 275°F for 6 hours, and choice cut pork ribs I smoked for 4 hours on 275°F - they both came out amazing! I've also used the grill to reverse-seer prime NY Strip steaks, by cooking on 225°F for 45 minutes, then cranking up to high (nearly 500°F) and seering for 90 seconds on each side for a PERFECT medium-rare steak. I've cooked beef and pork ribs many, many times and I've reverse seered NY Strips countless times, and the best I've ever cooked them all was on this grill, NO JOKE! It truly makes grilling and smoking idiot proof, just get yourself a nice digital thermometer and you'll never mess up. The perfect mix pellets also give a great flavor that isn't too overpowering like a 100% hickory or mesquite. $9.99 Smoker Thermometer - https://amzn.to/2Gt9iRH $37.00 40lb bag of Perfect Mix Pellets - https://amzn.to/2XdLcjg $13.99 Grill Cover works great - https://amzn.to/2IrDS02 You could certainly pay more for a name brand grill, but with the extended warranty and a cheap grill cover, I should more than get my money out of it.

Do not even think about buying this.;;Reviewed in the United States on May 15, 2019;;1.0 out of 5 stars;;Awful temperature control and terrible customer service;;Jacob;;;OK so, got the grill. Assembly was quick and easy. Did the first ignition as described in the manual. Went to use it the next day and that's when we had problems. When we set it on 180 the temp would stay above 220 and go as high as 250. It would never anywhere near 180.when we set it on 225 it would stay around 325 to 350. We called z grills and after 12 tries to get ahold of someone we finialy got a person. They said to loosen the smoke cap but that did no good. We even removed it with no luck. After 5 hours a rep from z grills called me back and said it was probably the controller but they were on back order and shipped from China. Not acceptable for me sorry. So I am still waiting on a call back for a resolution to this issue after 1 day. So I called the seller from Amazon and talked to a nice lady who initiated a return with no issusles what so ever. I'm going to wait one more day to see if u hear back from z grills before I disassemble the grill, try to get it back in the box and ship it back for a replacement. I hope z grills Valles back and fixes this problem. I really do not want to take it apart and shop it back. Would rather replace a part.

The included "startup list" steps you through the first startup and tests perfectly, so make sure you follow the list and you'll be cooking in no-time! The attached pictures are prime cut beef ribs I smoked on 275°F for 6 hours, and choice cut pork ribs I smoked for 4 hours on 275°F - they both came out amazing! I've also used the grill to reverse-seer prime NY Strip steaks, by cooking on 225°F for 45 minutes, then cranking up to high (nearly 500°F) and seering for 90 seconds on each side for a PERFECT medium-rare steak. I've cooked beef and pork ribs many, many times and I've reverse seered NY Strips countless times, and the best I've ever cooked them all was on this grill, NO JOKE! It truly makes grilling and smoking idiot proof, just get yourself a nice digital thermometer and you'll never mess up. The perfect mix pellets also give a great flavor that isn't too overpowering like a 100% hickory or mesquite. $9.99 Smoker Thermometer - https://amzn.to/2Gt9iRH $37.00 40lb bag of Perfect Mix Pellets - https://amzn.to/2XdLcjg $13.99 Grill Cover works great - https://amzn.to/2IrDS02 You could certainly pay more for a name brand grill, but with the extended warranty and a cheap grill cover, I should more than get my money out of it. I'm also happy with the overall size, as it fits nicely on my covered second story patio.

Feeder hopper caught fire!
Went to use this for the second time this afternoon - started up per directions, put steak on grill when warmed up, went in the house to make a phone call - came out to the feeder hopper smoking like wild! Turned it off, pulled the pellets out of hopper - it continued to smoke wildly for about an hour. After that, I was afraid to use this! I don't need to have my house burned down because the hopper full of pellets bursts into flames. Returning it to Amazon!

Awful temperature control and terrible customer service
Do not even think about buying this. Get a Traeger. From the start had outrageous temperature swings ex. Dial set to 180, temperature would get above 400. Three weeks after buying it the controls stopped working to where whatever temp it was set to, it would only select 325. Customer support was very unhelpful and kept telling me to clean out the fire pot for an obvious electronics issue. Then after 4 weeks it won’t even turn on. Returning immediately. Do not even think about buying this.

Good but....
OK so, got the grill. Assembly was quick and easy. Did the first ignition as described in the manual. Went to use it the next day and that's when we had problems. When we set it on 180 the temp would stay above 220 and go as high as 250. It would never anywhere near 180.when we set it on 225 it would stay around 325 to 350. We called z grills and after 12 tries to get ahold of someone we finialy got a person. They said to loosen the smoke cap but that did no good. We even removed it with no luck. After 5 hours a rep from z grills called me back and said it was probably the controller but they were on back order and shipped from China. Not acceptable for me sorry. So I am still waiting on a call back for a resolution to this issue after 1 day. So I called the seller from Amazon and talked to a nice lady who initiated a return with no issusles what so ever. I'm going to wait one more day to see if u hear back from z grills before I disassemble the grill, try to get it back in the box and ship it back for a replacement. I hope z grills Valles back and fixes this problem. I really do not want to take it apart and shop it back. Would rather replace a part. Well see and I'll update the review as needed.

Temperature can be controlled if it’s off!!!
I personally like this smoker. It’s my first one ever. If the temperature is off, close the stack or open it to get it right. I’ve smoked a brisket in 30 degree weather in the snow and smoked a shoulder in 70 degree weather. When it’s cold bring the stack down a few turns and vice versa when it’s hot to let more heat escape. It is a solid smoker in my opinion. Well built but it is my first smoker so can’t compare to anything else.
