Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill with Sear Box”
Speaking about Sear box, this is a unit that does not only offer an additional 180 square inches of cooking space but also adds more heat of about 16,000 BTUs, which means you can say bye-bye to a gas grill.
Now, let’s discuss about the reasons why this accessory makes not only your work hassle-free but also help make the tastiest meal.
All parts of this unit are made of stainless steel, including the mounting hardware, which assures customers of high quality.
The 2018 version of Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill comes with two racks, the lower rack measures about 429 sq in and the upper rack 382 sq in, which adds up to a sizeable total rack surface area to whopping 811 sq. in. which offers 40% more space than other classic versions.
Further, the total chamber capacity of this accessory is 4850 cu. in. which should be enough to hold a 14 pounds turkey. Speaking about weight and height, the Woodwind measure a height of 42 inches and weight approximately 150 lbs.
More so, it features a built-in temperature setting ranging from 160 to 500 degree F, which allows users t both smoke and slow cook. However, the Sear box can attain a high cooking temperature of 900 degrees Fahrenheit helping cooker sear a tastier meal.
In addition, the bottom shelf comes in handy, as it offers more space to store your items.
This model comes with an electric autostart ignition is the most fantastic function featured on the Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet grill. This feature allows users to adjust the grill leaving it to keep burning while you’re away.
That’s not all: it features a dual LED for displaying temperature which is kept at eye levels and makes it easier regulate.
Besides, first-time users will find handling this grill easier and less challenging to operate without running into any operational issues.
Also, this model comes with an ample capacity of about 22 lbs of the pellet hopper, which makes this unit worth an additional 100 USD alone.
Camp Chef Woodwind pellet includes the favourite patented ash cleanout system by the manufacturer. This handy system helps collect the ashes beneath the grill in a cup-shaped holder for easy cleaning. However, some users have stated that this cleaning system may not be very helpful as supposed, as users may need to clean the grill after use due to spread ashes everywhere.
The Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill with Sear Box offers a lot of conveniences such as pellet hopper cleanout mechanism, two meat probes, bottle opener, and also four caster wheeled legs for easy mobility and transportation.
According to some users review, the stove/auger in this unit is automatic and support burning pellets to provide more smoke without dealing with issues, which give it a soft spot over a lot of pellet grill available on the market.
Here’s another interesting about this unit, after unboxing you will find a recipe booklet which will guide you on how to make new dishes. Also, it comes with a drip tray that ensures that cleaning the grease is an easy peasy lemon squeeze.
On top of that, the camp chef offers a limited 3-year warranty on this unit; showing the manufacturer’s high level of confidence in this grill.
Slide & Grill (SG)
The term “Slide and Grill” may appear new to some users. This is a new technology from Camp Chef, designed to allow users to use their smoker for a direct heat grill-like experience.
This features works by using a heat/flame deflector. As you slide it back and forth through a knob on the smoker body’s lower left side, the flames leap up much higher. The knob moves away and towards the firepot, which is how the smoker is capable of offering more heat via the drip tray’s vents.
If you’re anything like me, then you find that the side sear box is one of the most amazing features that any manufacturer has included this unit in a long time.
The sear box is fixed to the pellet smoker’s right side. It’s powered using propane and can cook at a high temp about 900 degrees F. operating on propane; the manufacturer designed a lid to open and close, while the knob is responsible for controlling the level of heat at which you want to cook with.
Here’s more. The sear box comes with a cooking grate that is made of cast iron, which offers the assurance that this unit will be durable and stand the test of time. Further, the grate ribs are properly levelled to lay on a couple of incredible grill marks.
In my opinion, this is really an incredible feature.
Bear in mind that the SG version of the Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill is available with a griddle known as “Sidekick” for those who are not in love with the sear box. Therefore, ensure you select your desired option when purchasing this model.
