Would buy over and over again.

First, customer service is excellent. Had issue with replacement parts do to faulty auger. BBQG replaced unit. 2nd smoker lives up to advisement and quality, no regrets with victory. Use is 2-3 times a month, more on weekend.

Great Pellet Smoker for the $$

Never smoked anything before, but sure have eaten a bunch. Finally decided to bite the bullet and purchase one of my own. Researched pellet smokers extensively based upon both professional and amateur reviews on-line. Because I was not sure how much smoking I was going to do as a novice, I was reluctant to spend upwards of $2K for a nice Traeger 885. So I opted for the Victory. GREAT decision. Grill arrived fast and packaged extremely well. I assembled it myself in a couple of hours. Only issue I had with assembly was one of the captured nuts embedded in the leg spun loose and cannot tighten the bolt. Easily overcame with a little epoxy around it. I've been smoking EVERYTHING for the past 4 months. Ribs, brisket, steaks, chicken wings, turkey breast, etc. Also, my wife LOVES smoked cauliflower, broccoli, zucchini, etc. Added a Signals Wi-Fi/Bluetooth thermometer for that added level of ease. My only regret is that I didn't purchase the smoker years ago! There are a couple of things that I am not a fan of; The smoker temperature (when compared with the Signals thermometer) can be off by quite a bit (25-35 degrees). Also wish there was a 225 degree temp setting as there are a TON of recipes that call for that temp on slower, longer cooks. Overall, nothing too concerning, but wanted to be honest. Even with those minor issues, I have recommended this particular smoker to at least a half-dozen folks. My father just purchased this one after his Pit Boss crapped out after 2 years.

One year Report

Has been a year of owning my Victory Smoker. Thoughts, Comments and suggestions. First off this is my seventh Smoker. Six chips, and First pellet. Love this animal. Big hopper. Great temperature control. Two built-in probes. Handy front folding shelf, removable right side shelf, fixed lower shelf and four wheels. Some comments. Hopper is difficult to empty. I removed the perforated safety guard, and used an old 1 1/2 inch paint brush to push pellets to opening. KEEP FINGERS AWAY FROM AUGER. That's why they put the cover on. Use your brain. Cover Drip pan with heavy-duty aluminum foil. Also, line grease Drip edge and leave a hole down to bucket. Place foil along front edge between shelf and hood. I also use an extra temp unit with two probes and a grill sensor. Right side of grill runs about ten degrees less than left. So do ovens in your house. Bottom line. This is a great grill/ smoker. I've done buggers to roasts. Salmon to brisket. Turkey breast to whole birds. My wife and daughters all agree that all things have been better than any from previous smokers. I'm still learning. But, it's been fun so far.

I can't say enough good about this pellet grill!

I'm surprised more people don't know about the Victorylet Gril! It's fantastic and I have made so many different things on it. I use it minimum of twice a week and maybe even more. The temp does not fluctuate at all! No matter where I set it, THAT is the temp it stays at. Love it!

I am very happy!

Not only have I been pleased with this pellet grill ever since I was gifted one, but I recently found out that BBQGuys' customer support is amazing - quick to respond and activate on an issue I was having, and followed through the whole way until it was truly taken care of. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone!

Heck of an upgrade from dehydrator!!

So, I've been dehydrating my jerky for almost 20 years from ground, marinated and seasoned venison I harvest each year. In that mix I've always added smoke flavor. This year I decided to try smoking it and upgraded from my countertop Nesco to the Victory 35 smoker. Turns out this smoker is HUGE and has plenty of room to do more things than jerky, to my surprise! I guess the wife thought I was getting something smaller...well she didn't really ask those questions and I didn't offer the info, when talking about my "upgrade". Anyways, first run was to grill burgers, DELICIOUS at 300 for 30 minutes from startup. Next was a young 7 pound turkey breast, 200 for 4 hours then 250 for 45 minutes, PERFECT and juicy. While the turkey was on I threw in a chunk of venison backstrap, 2 hours and OMG it was good! The dog and cat had a few bites as well as the wife and kid. I'll get the jerky going this week or next and update! I suspect it will only take an hour or so at temp of 200 once up to temp. This think put out excellent smoke and I've only used the BBQ Guys signature pellets this far. Ordering more now!

Love it, just a couple things I would change

First, the good: This is amazing value. I didn't think I needed a smoker this big... until I had one. The shelf is awesome. Big hopper comes in handy on overnight cooks. I've found it holds temp incredibly well. I use a wifi probe with 2 dedicated to chamber temp. One side runs a little hotter than the other, but temp holding is solid. This was my most important criteria when I was shopping and it delivers. Sturdy construction. The eh: The hopper sometimes needs a little help moving pellets down the chute, so the side window is misleading. I wish the top shelf was wider. Wifi is an omission, but totally OK given the price. The not good: No 225 setting. It's an easy workaround, but if you're a newbie like me who is following recipes, this temp is used a lot. I usually run at 200 longer before bumping to 250 and it works fine. I have found that one side of the grill holds around 230 when I set to 250, so that works too. No clue why this decision was made. The bad: Nothing I would 100% recommend this grill to anyone, and I'm hoping that some of the above minor things can be addressed with gen 2 parts.

Expert Review

The Skinny:
  • Incredible 936 square inches of cooking space, the most in class
  • Everything here is meant to generate — and utilize — flavorful smoke
  • Huge hopper holds 29 lbs (you read that right) of pellets
  • Built to crush all-day smoking and swap flavors at your every whim
  • Survived stress tests that literally included hurricanes and gravel in the auger

Reviewing the Victory pellet grill feels a lot like listening to a favorite classic album on its original vinyl release: everything about it is just better. This is what pellet smoking is supposed to feel like. Every note lands exactly where we want them. Everything about the composition screams quality. Get it going, and you’ll have a timeless experience rife for years of enjoying the moments that matter with loved ones. If you’re in the market for a pellet smoker beneath the $700 price tag, let’s cut right to the point — this is it.

To get all the proof we needed, we asked Chef Tony to perform a thorough and objective review of the Victory pellet grill as if it was from any other manufacturer. That included his usual repertoire of numerical and real-world tests to evaluate the grill’s quality, performance, and features, which combine to give us an overall picture of a product’s value. It’s the same treatment he’d give any other pellet grill, so buckle up and read on to see what our resident grill tester discovered.

Quality:

Victory features robust construction backed by a solid warranty and astounding survival testing — especially for the Entry-Level class.

Grab your nearest clipboard and prepare to mark off a lot of checkboxes, because this pellet smoker was designed to meet or chew up the expected industry standards for this price point. 16-gauge, powder-coated steel body and cart with a 14-gauge hood? Check. Standard 3-year warranty on the grill body and 3 months on the electronic components? Check. Rock-solid, 7mm porcelain-enameled steel cooking grates? Check. Both the Full-Coverage Diverter Plate and fire pot protector are built using 12-gauge, cold-rolled steel for durability. “It’s one of the sturdiest I’ve seen in the class, for sure,” Chef Tony says of the fire pot protector. “Which is a good idea, considering that this is the grill’s component that will take the most abuse by far.” Meanwhile, the removable side tray and tool hooks located on the right side of the grill are made from stainless steel. So far? Impressive.

  • And yet, Victory earns an early, notable win against its main competition — the Traeger Pro 34 — with a generous cooking space: under this hood, you’ll find best-in-class 936 square inches of total grilling area. Victory’s engineers have provided grillers with 691 square inches of primary cooking space (and an additional 245 square inches from the secondary warming rack). Add in some serious mobility to swing that heft around: the 2 heavy-duty polyurethane wheels have a metal interior for handling heavy loads on tough terrain, while the 2 locking casters keep the grill in place once positioned. The knurled hood handle is slightly ridged for a superior grip, which makes opening the grill that much easier. Additionally, it lends a tough, rugged look that’s worthy of the Victory name.

    Now, onto the testing! Here in Louisiana, we get a handful of environmental stress tests every year that the textbooks call “hurricanes.” We couldn’t — nor would we want to — recreate these conditions during our filmed review, but our R&D department left this Victory model outside and running through two strong storms. Judging by how it shrugged off the churning wind and water, you’d have thought we hadn’t bothered. Even more direct testing — like repeatedly soaking the digital controller, sending gravel through the hopper, and trying to choke the auger with pellets — couldn’t stop Victory. Find a more reliable pellet grill at this price point. We dare you.

  • Victory's grill grates and warming rack

Performance:

Victory rapidly pumps voluminous smoke, spreads even heat, minimizes cleanup pains, and powers an auger that just won’t quit.

First and foremost, the Victory pellet grill smokes quickly, and it smokes in huge amounts. “Initially, you may think you’ve done something wrong,” Chef Tony quips. “That’s how much smoke this grill produces at times.” The flavorful smoke output should be celebrated, but we wanted to know just how evenly the smoke and heat are distributed across Victory’s cooking surface. To find out, Chef Tony placed thermocouples throughout the grill to measure average temperatures. On Smoke Mode (180°F), the average came in at 174°F, with the furthest individual readout just 19°F lower than that — “great” for an Entry-Level pellet grill. The high-heat test at 500°F produced similarly consistent results: an average temperature of 469°F after 15 minutes of preheating, 490°F at 20 minutes, and a maximum variance of 31°F from the average. Any thoughts, Chef Tony? “This is good for a pellet grill, or even probably as good — if not better — than most home ovens.”

  • Key to performance here is the Full-Coverage Diverter Plate. It serves two important roles: first, it functionally operates as a giant diffuser to evenly spread heat from end to end, and it channels errant food drippings to the hanging grease pail outside the grill. Aside from the simple cleanup, Chef Tony is impressed with how the Diverter Plate results in “few to none of the flare-ups that can happen, or spotty cooking zones. Overall, for an Entry-Level pellet grill, (the Victory has) excellent performance.”

    Most other aspects of performance are directly tied to the grill’s features (more on those in a second), but what we can tell you is that the grill’s heavy-duty auger is the unquestioned champion in this class, where serious jams are common. Our aggressive R&D testers fed this machine rocks, glass, wood chips, insulation — just about any unfriendly substance you could imagine to be found in a warehouse — and yet Victory’s auger kept on pumping. We can’t kill this thing, short of burying it in concrete for a later civilization to find. Even then, we’re not certain future archaeologists won’t excavate this beast and turn it straight back on.

  • Victory's PID-controller

Features:

Expect included shelves, intelligent and razor-sharp PID control, and the biggest pellet hopper in the game — at a whopping 29 pounds.

But the feature list is where Victory claims the biggest win against its main competitor, the equally-priced Traeger Pro 34. While Traeger’s front shelf is available separately as a not-insignificant upsell, Victory’s shelves (yes, plural) arrive right there in that first big package. The fold-down front shelf and removable, stainless steel side tray provide valuable work space; look forward to the bottom storage shelf (perfect for pellet bags) and those 3 removable, washable tool hooks. Neither of these latter two are available on the Traeger Pro 34. Chalk that up as another win for the Victory pellet grill.

  • While we’re tallying triumphs, Victory’s 29-lb pellet hopper is easily the largest in this price range; this guarantees ample reward for the “set-and-forget,” all-day or overnight pellet griller. (Comparatively, the Traeger Pro 34 and Camp Chef SmokePro DLX offer just 18-lb capacities. If you know your math, we’re talking over 50% deeper above either choice.) The rear of Victory’s hopper also has a pellet release that dumps fuel from the bottom, allowing you to swap flavors in about 10 seconds flat.

    Setting aside brawn for now, let’s talk brains: boasting pre-programmed temperature settings between 180°F and 500°F, Victory’s Digital PID Controller intelligently monitors the fan and auger speeds — and constantly maintains heat targets with little deviation, as noted in the prior section. For good measure, Victory’s controller includes a pair of ports for meat probes for hands-on internal temperature monitoring without opening the lid, which would release all that precious heat and smoke. But our favorite controller function might be Smoke Mode, which downshifts fan speed to keep those pellets smoldering while cycling for temperature maintenance at 180°F. This creates a — you guessed it — thick but flavorful tide of smoke within the grill to bathe and blanket your meats.

  • Victory Pellet's giant hopper

The Victory pellet grill’s power cord is rated for 120 volts/15 amps, meaning it can be plugged into standard outlets. No hardwiring or special circuit necessary — which is certainly a boon to the pellet veteran. An adjustable exhaust cap screws into the chimney to prevent rain from entering the cooking chamber, while protecting the fire pot from baleful wind interference that might cause random temperature swings during long cooks. Finally, Chef Tony found that the flanged hood indeed traps large portions of valuable heat and smoke inside the grill, leading to more flavorful results in his many food tests.

Value:

From solid construction and mighty operation to its feature count, Victory delivers the best overall experience for the money among Entry-Level pellet grills.

Tally it up all together, and what do you get? A pellet grill that will drink (and efficiently use) every pellet in sight, provide jaw-droppingly long smoking sessions, babysit its own temperatures, bathe everything inside in a thick layer of flavorful smoke, and has successfully laughed at two out of two hurricanes.

Slam all of this together in a hefty design that’s nimble on its wheels with industry-leading features… and then slap an Entry-level price tag on the box. We’re not trying to be in the business of calling a clear victor in this class of the pellet grill market, but let’s not kid ourselves — it’s even in the name. Why don’t you put a bow on this review, Chef Tony? “If you’ve been considering adding a pellet grill to your collection of grilling gear, then you should definitely consider the Victory pellet grill.”

Question:
Just purchased this grill and was curious about the "smoke" mode. Would this be good for a low and slow brisket overnight? Or is the smoke mode just for starting the grill? I've seen contradicting post online about if you can cook on smoke mode or not.
Was This Helpful?
Answer:
Go with the 200 degree setting you will get all the smoke you want but expect to cook at least 16 hours with a average size brisket, I only use smoke mode to start up as I've found the temp is not high enough to break down the fiber's to allow the brisket to shred like you want

Asked by BsneedAnswered by rwmc26

Answer:
Hi Bsneed. The "Smoke" setting on the Victory Pellet is its lowest setting of 180 F. While you can use it for brisket, 225-230 F would be strongly recommended as the ideal finish temperature for brisket is 205 F. With most briskets, this would take many hours at 230 F.

No. I tried to get the temp up to 425 but it doesn't get past 350. Even at 350 it is hard to maintain temp. It will drop down to 275 then try to get back up to 350 then drop again, but nothing past that. Thanks Bill for your help.

Answer:
I bought the Victory grill and it was my first pellet grill. I did a lot of research as I was concerned there would not be enough smoke. I have used it several times cooking a beef tenderloin, Cornish hens and pork chops so far. I have not been disappointed. All had good smoke flavor and were moist and tender. I will be trying a brisket soon.

Absolutely ! I just made the change to a pellet smoker.I did a great deal of comparison shopping prior to selecting the Victory 35" Grill. Simply put, it is all I could have hoped for.A great selection for both novice and advanced griller. Simple instructions for assembly, with detailed layout of fasteners…cannot go wrong details even by the beginner. Lots of smoke. Lean on use of pellets. Uncomplicated and simple to monitor during grilling process. I've had friends come over and use this grill. They now prefer it over their own grills produced and manufactured by competitors. I would have no other.

When will my item arrive?

Once shipped, items usually arrive within 3-5 business days. While UPS and FedEx are our carriers for smaller items, be aware that larger items and orders are shipped via freight. The freight process is a bit more complicated than what we’ve all come to expect for small parcels, so it’s important that you’re prepared and understand what’s required of you well before delivery day.

  • Most freight products ship on a pallet
  • Some carriers will call to schedule a delivery window, while others will deliver the shipment to a reasonably accessible location closest to your residence (their goal is to deliver as near a garage door as they can).
  • We’ll specify which process you can expect in your shipping confirmation email.

For carriers that schedule delivery appointments:

Carriers that schedule delivery appointments require you to be home for delivery and provide your signature. The delivery is made with a semi-truck with lift gate services, and the shipment is dropped off at the curb. If you authorize the shipping company to leave the delivery without a signature, BBQGuys can’t be held responsible for damages that occur during delivery. As complicated as this process may seem, we’ve only scratched the surface here — please review our detailed guide to freight delivery so there are no surprises when a freight shipment heads your way.

For carriers that deliver without an appointment:

Carriers that deliver without an appointment don’t require you to be home or set up a delivery window, and you aren’t required to sign for the pallet(s). Instead of scheduling an appointment, arranging your schedule to be home for the delivery, and signing to confirm receipt, you can sit back and let your items come to you. If you’re home at the time of the drop-off, you can request the driver place your delivery in the garage; if you’re out of the house, the driver will leave it near the garage or doorstep.
