Yoder Smokers might not have been the first to come up with the concept of a smoker that runs on compressed wood pellets, but we put our experience building high quality offset pit smokers from heavy gauge steel into manufacturing the very best pellet cooker on the market. We’ve put more time and money into research and development than marketing swag and celebrity endorsements, and it’s paid off with a solid range of American-made pellet grills that are durable, dependable, and quite literally award-winning for the folks who cook on them.
The YS Pellet Cooker Series is made up of three models: the YS480, the YS640, and the YS1500. The number in each model’s name corresponds to the area of cooking surface it offers, in square inches. Each one offers indirect and direct cooking, offering incredible versatility and ease of use for anything from barbecue to baking. (Note: the YS480 and YS640 are also available with competition cart bases like the one shown on the YS1500 for added mobility.)
We know we’re not the only pellet grill on the block. But we think the difference is obvious, especially when you see one in person. Check our Dealer Locator to see if there is a retailer near you. Yoder Smokers pellet cookers are made from heavy gauge steel, with an attention to detail you just don’t find in pits made outside of the USA. We put a lot of pride into what we put out into the world, so much so that our warranty is the best among our peers: 10 years on the body of the cooker, 3 years on the electronics, and one year on the igniter.
There are plenty of places to find information online about our pellet cookers and those manufactured by our competitors. If you’re looking for a place to ask specific questions about how Yoder Smokers match up to other brands, from pitmasters who have considered and/or cooked on a variety of makes and models, our Community Forum is a good place to start. Facebook groups like Team Yoder Smokers and Yoder Smokers Australia & NZ are also a great resource.
Take a look around and let us know if you have any questions. We’re always happy to help. We want you to make the right decision for your needs, and we hope it’s a Yoder Smoker.
