Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing pellet smoker let down by tech Don't get me wrong, I would definitely buy this again over competing offerings from Traeger and Weber. But it's really sad that some of the features can't be taken advantage of because of poor software execution. Especially since the hardware is really top notch. For one, the app doesn't connect to the smoker on 3 different Android devices I tried. Works fine on Apple. Which then brings me to my second point, temp sensor and probes were off by a significan amount, fortunately you can calibrate them, unfortunately you need the app to do so. So if you don't have an Apple device, no calibration for you. Setting the temp with the circular controls on the app is also finicky. I can't figure out why a timer running out on the app doesn't sound an alarm or sends a notification, or when the probes hit a target temp. A graph of probe temp over time would also be helpful. If the app wasn't so bad this would get 5 stars easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flavour and ease of use Had it over a year now and love it steakhouse quality steaks, pork tenderloin that melts your mouth, and roast beef that the finest chefs would be proud of.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Major letdown after 7 years with one of the original pellet grills, I saw the Crown and after some back and forth I decided it was time for the "upgrade". This has been anything but an upgrade. I have smoked with the unit less than 2 dozen times, followed stringent cleaning and emptying instructions and it has been a letdown, over and over. Firstly, do not use competitors pellets in the device because they will tell you immediately that it is not a warranty issue if you do. This is annoying, but it is what it is. The trouble is that their pellets are almost impossible to find quite often, making it a challenge to stick to their brand consistently. Almost no one but HD carries their pellets, so make sure you have one nearby or you will be tempted by another brand that is more readily available. Ok, so we have covered the issues with pellets. On to the wifi system on this grill. It is very finicky, not the least bit refined, and almost constantly is joining and dropping from wifi. It is not a given that when you open the app and try and look up your grill that it will even be available through the app. Any attempt at controlling the grill via your phone can just be thrown out immediately, as it doesn't respond to any communication from the phone, making it basically pointless. On to the thermometer. It comes with 2 probes that are built in which is a major part of why I was drawn to it. Unfortunately when compared to an industry standard thermometer, this device is wildly inaccurate. Now, the other thing that appealed to me was the searing option with the 600 degree temperature and the reversible grills. The grill does get to 600 according to the reading on the box (I haven't measured internal temp to confirm), so it does have that going for it. The one thing to be cautious of is that you will burn through pellets at an alarming rate to fill a drum this size with consistent 600 degree temps. I went through a $23 bag of pellets in no time when I was doing primarily burgers and steaks where the sear was preferable. Now, I have a broken auger motor and the conclusion that they have come to (without any picture or physical evidence) is that I was using another brand of pellets and that I left pellets in the grill. Both of these assumptions are incorrect. I spent 3 hours taking it apart and confirming this and identifying that the motor that turns the auger had actually started turning itself into the plate that sits below it, clearly a design issue. I was told after less than 7 months of ownership that I could order and pay for the parts including S&H, which leaves me wondering what their 3 and 5 year warranty actually even covers? I have never had this type of response, the accusations and instant decision that I should be responsible to purchase and install new parts to replace faulty parts from a flawed design. PLEASE, PLEASE reconsider this grill. They are not cheap, so there is no reason to avoid one of the original pellet grills from a more reputable and developed brand.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great build quality [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Been smoking since August 2020 and performa great. Great thick steel build quality (needed to smoke in winter) and cast iron grills (flavour saver!) so far other than a couple of jams with pellets stuck in auger that stopped the cook it has worked well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this smoker! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Bought this smoker a year ago. I love how easy it is to use and clean. It is predictable every time. I love that it gets up to 600 degrees. Lots of them don’t, and it’s perfect to get that char!
