Pellet Grill FAQ

A Yoder Pellet Grill is capable of grilling, smoking, baking, and roasting.  Barbecue a rack of ribs, bake a wood-fired pizza, or sear a thick steak all over 100% natural hardwood fire and smoke.  And with the ease of turning on a gas grill!

Absolutely!  Yoder Smokers are one of the few pellet grills that can achieve high enough temperatures to sear a steak.  Put a professional crust on your steak by grilling in the default mode, with the optional Direct Grilling Kit, or directly over the flame!

Pellet consumption ranges from 0.5 – 2 kg per hour depending on the cooking temperature and environment.  One 9kg bag of pellets will last up to 15 hours depending on the cooking and ambient temperatures.  For standard low&slow BBQ (115 deg C), the pellet consumption averages about 0.75 kg / hour.

Do not be tempted to use standard heating-grade pellets in your grill!  Pellet grills burn 100% natural hardwood, which results in a clean, natural smoke. Heating pellets are made from softwoods, such as pine, which contain bitter resins that will coat your meat as well as your grill and firebox.  This can damage the grill or at best reduce the lifespan significantly.  In addition, heating pellets can also contain glues and other toxins that will be exposed to the meat.

Yoder pellet grills are extremely efficient!  After burning an entire bag of pellets, you will be left with only a small cup of ash!  So the firebox only needs to be cleaned after every few cooks.  The easiest way to clean out the ash is to just use an ash vac or other similar vacuum.

There are two differences between the YS480 and the YS640. The first is size. The cooking surfaces are 33% larger on the YS640. The second difference is the addition of the Variable Displacement Damper (VDD) in the YS640 for 2-zone cooking.

The main cooking grates are constructed of 6mm steel bar with a chrome finish.  The 2nd shelves are expanded steel.

Yes.  The front and side shelves are constructed from steel bar with a chrome surface.  The YS640 Comp Cart and YS1500 have heavy-duty stainless steel shelves.

150 to 600 degrees F (65 to 315 degrees C).  Over 700 degrees F (370 C) with the Direct Grill Kit.

The temperature is digitally controlled in 5 deg F or C increments.  The new ACS models can be controlled either manually on the display, or through iOS or Android apps by Bluetooth or Wifi.

The heat up period for direct grilling is 10-15 minutes. The heat up period for indirect cooking is 20-30 minutes.

On the left side of the pit.  Airflow is less volatile from left to right (firebox to chimney) than a center-mounted firebox, so the placement significantly reduces the hot spots in the corners and in the front and back edges of the cooker which allows the cook to utilize more of the cooking area.

When the YS640 is setup traditionally (heat diffuser in place) the Variable Displacement Damper allows some additional temperature control. With the damper pushed all of the way in, the left half of the grill will run hotter, when positioned all the way out (open) the right end of the grill will run hotter. With the damper pushed in about 10cm the grate surface will cook evenly, which creates the ideal environment for slow cooking similar cuts of meat. With the direct grill kit in place it is recommended to open the damper all the way to allow the heat to develop across the entire cooking surface.

Yoder pellet grills have a short, powerful auger that does not jam unlike other pellet grills on the market.

Start by removing the grill grates and diffuser plate, vacuum the body, use a thin knife to remove any buildup and finish by wiping with a natural cleaner.

Yoder Smokers are painted with a satin black high temperature stove paint.  If your grill gets scratched or chipped during use, it is quick and simple to repair unlike other grill surfaces.  After 5-10 years of heavy use, it is still possible to repaint your grill and have it looking like the day it came from the factory!

All pellet grills imported to Europe are built specially by Yoder Smokers for the European market.  This includes 220V electronics and components, features and components to comply with CE standards and norms, and EU/UK plugs.

350W during the first 5 minutes while the igniter is lighting the pellets, and 50W thereafter.
