Anyone here grill with their pellet grill? Trying to decide whether to get some grill grates or simply get a blackstone griddle (or knockoff).

From what i've seen, and part of the reason i'm sold on the ys640s, is that grilling is capable albeit slightly different than a gas/charcoal.

I fully intend to mostly grill on my future yoder and smoke occasionally. I'll be ordering the grill grates for it as well.

From what i've seen of the grillgrates, i'd be likely to just use those as replacements/upgrades on any grill/smoker.

I grill on my Camp Chef for burgers and such. Pull the heat deflector handle and you have direct flame from the pellets. It works great.

If you’re looking to grill a lot of things at once it may not be the best as the firebox is small compared to the full size of the grill and/or compared to a 3 burner gas grill.

This is sort of my experience doing direct grilling on my YS640. With the GrillGrates I get good direct heat on about half the main grate (the firebox end). It is definitely workable though.

I still like my pitt boss. I didn't do a whole lot of research, but for the size and price I like it. I was able to smoke 7 racks of ribs at once.

Good channel to sub for pellet grill recipe ideas. ATBBQ is a storefront in Wichita that is run by the family that owns Yoder Smokers.

Here’s a good look at the new Yoder YS640S features. I cannot wait until they release the board upgrade for my legacy YS640 Comp Cart.

I have a Yoder YS640 that I love. :thumbup:
I am set with a nice 42" Lynx propane Grill but have been considering adding a smoker. I like the Yoder and assume the only difference between the standard and competition is the stand and more robust wheels but is there an option to get a competition stand in black instead of orange? That may be a hard sell for my wife and I can't say I am crazy about it either. Other then that, the 640s looks great.

Edit; I see on the web page an option for a black or silver cart in addition to orange. Problem solved.

For sure - I think they will do custom colors too.

And yes, they are identical other than the cart.

You got plans for any of those around September 30th?
I may not have the best lawn and I may not have a clue what I’m doing but that’s pretty much all I have to say.

It may just work out because I’m fairly certain I’ll be hungry around that time.

FINALLY got my Yoder YS640s ordered and delivered this week.

I'm excited and a bit intimidated at the same time (no idea why). I'll go through the burnoff and seasoning process this weekend.

Congrats! I ordered the new controller upgrade for mine - it arrived just before I left town for GIE, so I haven't had a chance to install it yet.
