Facebook has its uses. Groups like Team Yoder Smokers, Yoder Pellet Grills Fan Page, and Yoder Smokers Australia & NZ give Yoder fans an easy way to share photos of their latest triumphs as well as tips and questions for other owners. It lets us reach out to the Yoder Nation and vice versa.
Yoder owner Rick shared this with us for #TBT (Throwback Thursday):
One of the best ways to learn about Yoder Smokers is to join our Community Forum. It’s an incredible resource, with Yoder owners putting our cookers to the test, troubleshooting, and sharing insights and helpful hints with each other. Competition pitmasters and backyard grilling newbies assemble on even ground, to discuss the ins and outs of barbecue and how to get the most out of your Yoder. We peer in and try to answer questions and generally be helpful, but Yoder owners are an independent breed and tend to make their own decisions!
Here’s a recent post from Community Forum member Bob Parrish, summing up his thoughts about his new YS1500 pellet cooker.

The Yoder Smokers Community Forum is a great resource for learning about our cookers, both for new owners and those considering buying one. Forum discussion is driven by owners, not created by our staff, and features conversations about everything from competition tips to photo brags and troubleshooting. It’s overseen by Yoder_Herb who was, himself, a customer deciding between a Yoder YS640 and one of our competitors. (We just dug up the 2012 email to prove it!) He became a Yoder owner, and then one of our most dedicated fans until we unceremoniously pulled him out of retirement and put him to work – manning the forum he suggested we needed! Here is his story, as told to a recent customer.
