Yoder Smokers are NOT the typical barbecue pit you buy down at the local department store. These pits are designed for use at the biggest BBQ competitions, and in your own backyard where the competition can be just as stiff. We construct our line of competition-grade smoker pits to last a lifetime. In fact, that's how long we guarantee them against burnout. Our pits have so much steel in them that even the smallest pit we make weighs in at 255 pounds... and our biggest pits weigh well over 1,200 pounds, before we even add a trailer to the weight. So, when your neighbor's shiny polished-steel grill has burnt through and is headed for the dump, you'll still be smoking away.
The popularity of charcoal cooking has been steadily increasing over the past 10-years. To meet that demand Yoder has introduced large format charcoal grills that cater to the folks who are cooking for a crowd. Key features that cooks will immediately appreciate are the variable height charcoal basket, the ability to cook indirectly and the front shelf.
Yoder Smokers Pellet Grills come standard with an easy-to-use digital control and two convenient exterior shelves. With expansive cooking surfaces-ranging from 800 to 1,070 square inches-combined with nearly twelve inches of headroom, there's plenty of room for anything, including beer can chickens or turkeys.
Our well respected and popular YS640 is just at home on the competition circuit as it is the back yard. The cooker's main body and electronics are all the same, but when you add the competition cart and stainless steel prep shelves, it becomes even more versatile and markedly more maneuverable - perfect for someone competing at a different venue every weekend.
