i'd prob stay away from Expert Grill for a pellet grill. They other (gas/charcoal) grill only last a season or 2 max.
If you want a budget pellet grill thats worth it, check out z-grills. I bought one 3 years ago and still looks brand new (no rust etc). I do cover it all year round though.

Commenting on something you haven't actually used because of other products in their line isn't super helpful. It's a pretty damn good deal, especially if you can find one locally to avoid the shipping costs. It also generally has very good review on the Walmart website.

App has mediocre reviews, and interestingly is made by the same company that makes zgrills app, so possibly this is just a zgrills rebrand or the parent companies are related. Zgrills app has worse reviews. All based on iOS app.

well thats why i made it clear in my comment that i was comparing to their other grills.
And if a company produces low quality products accross the board, thats enough reason for me not to buy their products. But thats me though, you do you.

I've had this for a year. Good starter piece I think. Working great for me and I get rave reviews anytime I smoke Tri-Tip in it.

Bought one 1/2022. The auger went out 3/2022. Contacted expert grill multiple times and no return call or email. Filed complaint with BBB. these grills are awful.

I went from a small Pit Boss to this. I bought mine last September for $150 plus $49 shipping. I smoked a pork butt last night. At 225 it took around 7 hours for the meat to reach 160, then I transferred it to a small electric roaster to finish. Overall, it came out good, but although I was using hickory pellets, it didn't have the hickory flavor I'm accustomed to. I'm starting to think pellet grills aren't for me since they don't achieve the same quality of smoke as wood/charcoal smokers.

This thing is huge, cavernous. I didn't attach the side table to save space. The front shelf is enough for me. Assembly is easy for such a large item. I can't say I'm in love with it, but it has performed OK. One of the problems is clean up of the grates. Not fun as they don't fit in my sink. They do fit on the bottom rack of the dishwasher (barely), but I find them pretty unwieldy. Also, that huge box is pretty thin metal. It can cook a ton of food, but I think it takes a long time to get to and maintain temp. It seems to have pretty wide temperature swings too, but it eventually settles around the temperature you choose. I found that opening the direct flame port helps when using one side. I did leave it outside last Winter (lots of snow) under my covered patio with a nice cover, and it looked brand new when I uncovered it. The app works fine for me, no complaints there. The meat probe works well. Access to the ash cup is easy, but you still have to remove the grill grates and heat/drip shield. Feature-wise it has just about everything you could ask for in a pellet grill. For the money I can't complain.

I purchased this at the start of spring for about the same price. As long as you keep your expectations low and reasonable it's a decent pickup at that price.

Keep in mind it's a pellet grill. It's never going to give you that smoke flavor like a offset smoker. Using a smoke tube will help but it's nothing like a offset.

It does take awhile to heat up. Coming from a Pitboss Austin XL I do find the startup a bit slower then I like. Once it reaches temp it does seem to hold decently well. Every time you open the grill the temp drops rather quick on this.

Putting it together was pretty easy. Hardest part was putting the side part in and screwing it in. Probably took me 2 hours but I'm dumb and was doing it solo.

Cleanup is simple but like someone said you have to pop the grill grates off to get to the ash pot.

App is Bluetooth based so the range sucks balls but the app seems to do fine.

Overall it's a decent grill at that price. I wouldn't pay much more then that price for it. If you want something cheaper and keep your expectations reasonable it's a decent choice.

Honestly it's an auger pushing pellets, I've had food off a $200 pellet grill and $1200 one they taste the same.
