Amazing things come in small packages.

If you are searching for a single grill to perform all of your outdoor cooking needs but don't need the space of the Yoder Smokers YS640, then the Yoder Smokers YS480 Pellet Grill is the answer.

In the past, pellet fired grills have been excellent at smoking and baking but could not create the focused heat at the grate to be considered a serious direct grill. Yoder Smokers has overcome this challenge with their YS Series of pellet grills outfitted with their direct grilling package.

When fit with this package, the grate temperature on the left side soars past the 700-degree mark and produces those coveted steakhouse quality grill marks, fast cooking times, intense caramelization, color and texture common to cooking over an open fire or gas fired grill.

YS Pellet Grills also offer superior quality and taste when used traditionally as a pellet fired smoker. With second-to-none build craftsmanship, the YS Pellet Grills help to produce the flavor that only wood fires can produce, all with the ease of "set it and forget it" operation.

I'm overwelmed at this awesome smoker!
I've had the pellet grill about 5 months now. I wanted to give it some time to test different meats and cuts before I wrote. Everything was 4 star, ribs, brisket, pork butt, Steaks ( butter knife tender, and seared to perfection), chops, etc. It's all because of the construction, second to none, the temp control always on target, and the overall quality of every part of this unit. I purchased the blanket, which I put on in November. Buy it! I've smoked, grilled, and everything in between in weather down to -10 and windy, and still had wonderful results. My plans are also to purchase a larger unit for my business. I have a catering, bakery café, and this will grab some serious attention from customers, from brats, ribs, brisket and pulled pork. You guys have nailed this, and I'll be crazy not to add this to my business in the near future. Thanks again for making such a terrific product!

The Yoder smoker is a really nice unit, I'm actually purchasing the YS1500 for my business. Just be cognizant of the accessories they seem to be a bit high.
My YS480 arrived on time and was packaged nicely. Other than the label with the serial number and build date being scratched all in all it was fine. The custom fit cover I received is not custom at all. The cover does not really fit very well it is much taller than the actual unit, it fits very loosely. The smoking kit is not worth the cost, it is nothing more than the amaze-n-smoke tube which I could have purchased separately for less money.
