Field & Stream recently fired-up and reviewed a group of top name pellet smokers in an effort to see just how they performed. When it comes to “low and slow” backyard barbecue, not all pellet smokers are created equal. From whole chickens to pork to brisket, ease-of-use and capability were key factors in the process as were build quality and performance. In the end, the Yoder Smokers YS640S was named Field & Stream’s Best Pellet Smoker 2023 ahead of Traeger, Weber, Pit Boss, and others.
With class-leading cooking space, the Yoder Smokers YS640S impressed Field & Stream with it’s ability to hold a set temperature and evenly cooked food. “What makes the Yoder Smoker pellet grill so good is its heat retention. While it smokes, it holds its temperature within +/- 5 degrees of your desired temperature the whole time.” Of course the American Made build quality was recognized, with a phrase we hear a lot…”it’s built like a tank.” The Best Pellet Smoker category is something we can get behind!
