Video Product Review: Camp Chef SmokePro SE Pellet Grill
Just because the SmokePro SE from Camp Chef has fewer features than its bigger brothers, doesn’t mean it is lacking in capability. The SmokePro LE offers the same self ignition, self feeding pellet hopper, and internal temperature sensor as the larger Camp Chef Pellet Grills.
With the ability to heat up to 500 degrees, the SmokePro LE offers the ability to work as a smoker, or a pellet feed barbecue grill. It will automatically keep the desired temperature from 160-500+ degrees. Just set the dial, and let the auto feed system maintain the perfect cooking temperature for you.
A built-in grease collection system keeps the grill clean over multiple uses, and an ash bucket collects burnt pellets so you don’t have to clean the ash out after each use.
A heavy-duty auger feeds pellets from the large hopper directly into the combustion chamber for worry-free cooking or smoking. The hopper will hold up to 18 pounds of pellets, so you spend less time refilling.
A large 19.5-inch by 22-inch grilling area is large enough for most applications, and additional optional jerky racks are easily inserted to give you even more smoking area.
You can smoke meat on both low or high heat settings for more versatility and longer smoking times for that amazing slow smoked flavor, or turn it up to quickly smoke your favorites and get them on the plate faster.
At 106 pounds, this smaller version is lighter and easier to transport to hunting camp or the cabin. Wheels help with moving it around once you get it to your smoking location.
For the money, this feature-packed smoking powerhouse is a great portable pellet smoker or perfect for those who want to get started with pellet smoking without losing out on the functionality found in larger grills.
