Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill with Sear Box - Smart Smoke Technology - Ash Cleanout System

Your cooking experience will never be the same again once you tried the Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill with Sear Box. With an all-in-one cooking functionality for grilling, smoking, baking, roasting, braising, barbecuing, and even searing, you won’t be able to stop cooking: be it a monthly backyard barbecue gathering, a house party to celebrate special events, get togethers to cheer your favourite football team, and other social occasions that call for a feast, this grill will never let you down.

No more uneven grilled steak, burnt chicken, or uncooked insides, this grill does it all for you. It just needs to be filled with the natural wood pellets. You and your family’s taste buds would sing for that perfectly smoked steak, grilled burgers, and even the best tasting pizza you will all love: you will feel like the best chef in town cooking for anyone, everyone, for that matter.

The Camp Chef Woodwind Grill is well built with a stainless steel construction that makes it sturdy enough to last all the summers and winters of barbecue days and nights. Its electric auto-start ignition and dual LED temperature read out gives you an easy to set selection system. It also makes it easy to read and operate, you wouldn’t need a rocket scientist to assemble and start this thing. With its Smart Smoke Technology that maintains the heat for you and produces the optimal amount of smoke, there is no need for babysitting your meal while it cooks. Its digital temperature control and automatic auger that feeds the pellets into the grill already does the work for you, and the best part of it is that the smoke goes directly to your meat giving you that added smoky flavour.

On the searing side, you can either finish off your burgers, steaks, or chicken from the grill to this highly useful sear box for a crisp, caramelized sear and seal in its juices, or cook something else. This propane fuelled box can reach temperatures of up to 900° F which is already hot enough for anything you want to cook.

And at the end of the grilling process is the clean out. What is unique to the Woodwind Pellet Grill is that its patented ash cleanout system is one of its kind since no other grill has the technology of just pulling up a lever and cleans out your ash pan. The sear box has its own drip pan as well for easy cleaning.

May it be on your patio, front lawn or backyard, this grill is easy to move with its four wheeled legs that really makes it roll. Its compact size for a cooking tool that has most of the cooking capabilities you need only takes up little space, when there is no more space for another grill, and more room for moving around. But, however compact it may seem, it also gives you a lot of work area with side and bottom shelves, a warming rack, space for your sear box, and even its propane tank has its own holder.

You can easily switch from where you want to cook, be it on days that you’re having a party and your woodwind pellet grill comes in handy, or, on days that you just want to cook something for yourself, you can easily switch to the sear box: its saves both space and energy, from pellets to propane. Its 570 square inch grilling surface gives you enough space to cook for the whole neighbourhood, and you can finish it off in the 184 square inch searing box or use it to cook for yourself.

From experience, it is usually hard to achieve the exact temperature that you want in your grill, but because the Woodwind Pellet Grill has a wide temperature range of 160°F to 500°F, you can already choose the temperature you need at nearly the accurate level you need.

You can grill, sear, smoke, barbecue, roast, and bake your favourite dishes on this grill that makes outdoor cooking a fun experience. So why distress yourself with kerosene smoke smells, constant fanning of embers, or grills that don’t start up at just a click of the dial, when you can have smoke that goes to your food instead of your clothes and grills that take care of your food instead of burning it.
