Fits in my motorhome basement storage
We bought this Pursuit because of its folded dimensions. It fits perfectly in the basement storage of our Thor Aria motorhome. Easy fold up, easy clean, easy storage when on the road. I use a Traeger at home and have to say after a week of cooking on this camp chef...I might like it better than the Traeger. Its got a more intuitive screen, easier to set it to run. My only complaint is no wifi. I would love to monitor it on my iPhone. But I guess you cant haver everything. Overall, it's a winner. We are thrilled with its performance and would recommend it to anybody traveling in an RV.

Very Versatile
Very versatile and easy to use. Love the fact that I can also bake and grill and even get a sear while grilling. Plus it keeps the temp within +/- 5 degrees even when it is windy and cold. Will definitely recommend to friends.

Pursuit 20 Portable Pellet Grill
Great little grill. New to pellet grills, so practicing has been fun and flavorful. Cleanout system is great. If you want to change pellet flavors, just replace the cleanout cup with a clean bowl and run FEED. Takes a while, but works well. Very happy with the purchase.

great portable grill
I have now had this about a month and every weekend I have smoked something different on it. I love it, the ability to control the smoke the flavor the pellets give the food and how easy it is to clean. The best part is the ash cup very nice feature to not have to disassemble your grill just to remove the ash. The legs are a bit iffy but for being portable they will work.

Perfect for "camping" in the city!
I wanted the quality and flavor of a dual purpose pellet grill but didn't have the space as a city dweller. The Pursuit solved that problem: what an amazing grill! I was a novice to pellet grills but Camp Chef made things easy with this model. It does all the work for you. I have made ribs, smoked chicken, and look forward to more exotics like pizza and pies. I'm spending so much more time on my patio and eating whole fresh meats and veggies. I highly recommend this grill if you have limited space and want a high quality smoker/grill.

Great quality & features
I bought mine in June 2019, and as of Dec 1 have run more than 6 bags (120#) of pellets through it. Ribs, pork butts, sausage, meatloaf, meatballs, thick chops & steaks, prime rib, salmon, wings, beer-can and bricked chicken, kabobs ... Still doing research before tackling a brisket (thanks Franklin & Tom). The unit is easy to start & heats-up well. Maintains fairly consistent temperature. Develops great smoke ring & flavour (yes I'm Canadian). I rarely use the 'slide & sear' except when camping (I have other grills for high-heat searing). Lumberjack brand pellets leave very little ash. Cleaning is straighforward and should not be neglected: shopvac the dust out of the base + apply degreaser / brush all-around. The patio cover is good quality; I'm waiting for them to offer an insulating blanket for cold-weather cooking (please?). Others have commented on portability: Yes it is 100# and a little akward to fold-up etc. - but I say it's worth it vs alternatives - folks are always very happy to see it / enjoy the resulting food at a campsite / tailgater. No Regrets - I remain very very satisfied with my Campchef Pursuit.

Great Solid Small Pellet Grill
This is a great smaller pellet grill. It is by no means lightweight or poorly made. It is heavy, but I can move it by myself with the solid leg/wheel structure. Overall the construction is solid. Nothing feels flimsy or lightweight. Setup is fairly easy, removing all the packing and protection takes about 1/2 an hour. Getting the legs extended makes it a lot easier to setup. Make sure you read the directions about how to unlock the legs top and bottom! After it is up, it is easier to attach the handle and get everything unpacked. Attaching the handle is about the only assembly required. Everything else is already assembled. All stickers are attached with magnets and come off easily with no residue. There is plenty of room inside for 2-3 chickens in upright or lying down, a turkey or a couple of pork shoulders. The startup and process of cooking is clear from the manual and easily accessed control panel. The 10# hopper seems sufficient for 6-8 hours of slow cooking. Higher temperatures will require more monitoring of the pellet level as it burns through them faster. There isn't an easy way to empty the hopper if you want to switch pellets. I've seen small shop vacuum solutions that is probably the best way to go to clean out the hopper. You'd have to remove the top grid to do it by hand or vacuum them out. It would be nice to have an empty function like some of the larger Camp Chef grills. Cooking doesn't seem to add as strong of a smoke flavor as some of my other smokers. You may want to buy a small wood chip box that sits on the grill, and provides some more direct smoke if you like the stronger flavor. The included probes plug in easily and seem to work well to monitor the meat temperature from the control panel. The bottle openers works well! I did purchase a cover for it and that is essential for weather protection of both the electronics and metal parts.

Nice unit.
I bought this a month ago and am very happy with it. I like the ash dump and the 2 temp probes. It is simple to use and takes your food to a higher level.

The Skinny:

  • Patent-pending Slide and Grill technology
  • Patented simple ash cleanout
  • Smart Smoke technology creates accurate temperatures
  • Compact, portable design

Things We Love:

Slide and Grill Feature

One of the most exciting aspects of grilling is experimenting with direct and indirect cooking. Luckily, the Camp Chef Pursuit 20 pellet grill makes that easy with its patent-pending Slide and Grill technology! Simply slide the knob out to put your food directly above the flame, then slide it back in for an indirect heating position. In addition to the Slide and Grill feature, Camp Chef included an ash cleanout system that requires nothing more than pulling a knob and emptying a detachable cup.

The Pursuit pairs those convenient components with a compact design for portability. With heavy-duty wheels, push-button folding legs, and secure lid latches, this pellet grill is easy to take with you no matter where you’re going. The Camp Chef Pursuit’s combination of versatility and portability makes it a perfect companion for your next tailgate or camping trip!

Smart Smoke Technology

Camp Chef made sure to give this pellet grill one more advanced feature in the form of Smart Smoke technology. This innovation keeps the heat within 15 degrees Fahrenheit of your target temperature, which leads to more smoke and greater flavor because the grill will burn pellets less often and in bigger numbers. But if you need exact temperature for your food, Smart Smoke also offers precise temperature settings between 175-350 degrees.

This model’s durable, powder-coated steel parts, along with its stainless steel lid and fire box, are excellent at retaining heat and maintaining accurate temperatures. Thanks to those features and its simple temperature selection system, the Camp Chef Pursuit can reach a high-end searing temperature of 500 degrees and a low end of 160 degrees for slow smoking.

Deceptively Large Cooking Surface

Don’t let the Pursuit’s portability fool you — this pellet grill can crank out serious amounts of food. The main cooking area has 253 square inches of room for food, but the 248-square inch upper warming rack brings the total grilling space to just more than 500 square inches. That means you can fit up to four racks of ribs on this grill, and if you’re cooking on indirect heat, you essentially have an on-the-go oven! Additionally, you don’t have to worry about hotspots or using the top rack for warming only.

Convenient and Powerful Design

Portability wasn’t the only thing Camp Chef had in mind when creating the Pursuit pellet grill. It boasts 25,000 BTUs of cooking power, and its auger releases pellets from a 10-pound capacity hopper, which is large for a portable model. This grill is also equipped with a continuous fan that ensures even heat no matter what you’re cooking. To put you in total control of this powerful pellet pit, Camp Chef’s digital display shows either the grill’s temperature or the internal food temperature monitored by two included stainless steel meat probes. Above all else, you know you can rely on the respected name and durable construction of a Camp Chef grill.

Accessories for Safekeeping

The Pursuit pellet grill is an investment that should last for years, so why not protect it? Pick up a grill cover to keep your pit shielded from the elements when not in use, or get a carrying bag to prevent it from being damaged when you’re on the go. Whatever you do, be sure to treat your grill well, and it will do the same in return!

Things To Consider:

The upside of the Pursuit is that you get all the great features of Camp Chef’s larger pellet grills (patent-pending Slide and Grill technology, patented ash cleanout, and durable construction) in a portable package. However, be mindful that this grill’s hopper can fit only 10 pounds of pellets and that you still need electricity to run the auger and temperature controller.

Question:
Hi. Does this require a gas connection or is it all electric? I'd much rather use electricity than gas.

Answer:
Hi Jenny, the Camp Chef Pursuit 20 just uses electricity and wood pellets, no gas is required!

Asked by JennyAnswered by Ryan

 
Question:
Hello at BBQGuys - I'm overhauling the "camp kitchen" for our adventure trailer. I'm new to pellet grills like this. Do I understand correctly that on indirect heat, I can essentially use this as an oven - i.e. maybe roast a chicken on the bottom rack, with a pan of potatoes on the top rack, that sort of thing? And is the indirect heat function different than the smoke function? Or are they the same thing? (Thanks in advance for your patience with my newbie questions :)
Was This Helpful?
Answer:
Hi Scott. Yes, when using indirect heat, the grill functions similarly to a convection oven. Smoke mode is used for cooking foods at lower temperatures with more smoke. Smoking is usually done with indirect heat, but they are not the same thing.

Question:
How does the camp chef pursuit 20 compare to the Traeger tailgater I am looking for the best smoker griller for my wife and I with the most grilling room and smoking room when we are up camping or just around our home with family and friends
Was This Helpful?
Answer:
Hi Dale, thanks for asking. Both this and the Traeger Tailgater are excellent choices so we can see why you'd have trouble choosing. If you're worried about space, however, this Camp Chef takes the cake with a total grilling area of 501 Sq. Inches with two grilling ares compared to Trager's 300 Sq. Inches on one grilling area. Hope this helps!

When Will My Item Arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3–5 business days. If your item or order is large, it may ship via one of our third-party freight carriers, which deliver from semi trucks with lift gates. Freight delivery is much more complicated than standard parcel shipping — you must schedule a drop-off time, be present for the delivery, and move items from the curb to your residence, among other differences. Sound stressful? If you prepare in advance with our guide to freight delivery, it doesn’t have to be.

We strongly encourage reading the entire freight delivery guide, but here’s a quick snapshot of what you need to be ready for when you order a large package:

  • Your freight carrier will call you to schedule a delivery window of about 4–8 hours
  • You’re required to be physically present at the specified delivery location during the scheduled window
  • Freight shipments are carried in semi trucks, which have lift gates to assist with unloading
  • Freight deliveries are dropped off at the curb and no further — not up the driveway, not the porch, not the garage, and most definitely not the backyard — so it’s on you to transport packages to their intended location
  • For an easier time hauling items to your home or backyard, arrange for at least 2 helpers to be on standby during your delivery window
  • You must sign for the shipment to indicate that you’ve accepted the delivery

Again, we recommend reading our entire breakdown of freight delivery so you can become familiar with the process. Trust us when we say that getting caught off guard with the strict requirements of freight delivery can lead to a whole lot of headaches.

No Restocking Fee

Message to our customers: Like all retailers and manufacturers, we’re currently experiencing well-publicized supply-chain issues and steel shortages that have caused some orders to be delayed. We sincerely apologize for any inconveniences arising from this situation, and we assure you we’re making every effort to solve these problems with our vendors and logistical partners.

So, why are some orders being affected? Major ports around the world are still operating at reduced capacity because of COVID-19 restrictions — on average, container boats sit at port for about 3 weeks before being unloaded. Combine these shipping inefficiencies with a scarcity of natural resources, and virtually every industry has been crippled to some degree. Yet we acknowledge that it’s our duty to meet these challenges head-on and work toward solutions so you can enjoy more time outdoors with the people you love. We appreciate your patience as we strive to smooth out our supply chain, and we thank you for choosing us for your grilling and outdoor living needs.
