The Skinny:
Good buy for the money; high-heat flame broiler plate; wide temperature range; programmable food probe included

Things To Love:
Louisiana Country Smokers offers a classic barrel smoker design with valuable cooking space that offers more grilling area than many other grills its size.

Louisiana Country Smokers hold up to 12 pounds of pellets and produce a wide temperature range of 170 degrees to over 600 degrees. The grill features stainless steel burn grates that cover the direct heat, for low and slow cooking. However, one of the plates feature an adjustable broiler grid, allowing the fire to rise to the grilling surface for flame kissed broiling.

The heavy gauge steel exterior, reinforced curved lid and chimney-less design allow this grill to hold temperatures better than other pellet grills in this price range, and help in providing an even cooking surface through convection heat.

The auto-start Digi-Que controller allows you to simply set your temperature to start. The included programmable food probe monitors your foods internal temperature. The grill automatically goes into smoking mode once the set temperature is reached. This prevents your food from over cooking if left on the grill.

Things To Consider:
Louisiana Country Smokers have a higher pellet consumption than similar grills, only burning up to 8 hours with 12 pounds of pellets. This means you will have to refill the hopper for longer smokes, like brisket.

You'll Like This Grill If:
You prefer North American made products and intend to take advantage of this country smoker's ability to reach lower temperatures than any other grill we carry.
