Since Yoder Smoker's began offering GrillGrates as a standard on their newest line of pellet grills I
I'm experiencing the same enthusiasm and pleasure I had when I got my Big Green Egg. I'm like a kid with a new toy! Its amazing how efficient the Yoder YS 640 is. And not just as a low and slow grill either. The first time I grilled steaks on the Yoder (removing the heat shield to direct grill over the burn pot) I was surprised at how fast the grill got to 650F.
The Yoder's efficiency is matched with its environmental friendliness compared to briquettes or lump charcoal which put off a lot more smoke and soot. The ash in the bottom of the grill after 60 pounds of pellets would not fill a coffee cup. Compare that to the ash from briquettes which would fill a coffee pot!
My first low and slow was a pair of pork shoulders that spent 12 hours, then ribs and now its time for a brisket.
