About the Yoder Smokers YS640

If you are searching for a single grill to perform all of your outdoor cooking needs, the YS640 from Yoder Smokers is the answer. Traditionally, 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.

The 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.

Best Pellet Grill you can buy.
This is a nice cooker, I have been a pellet grill guy for 5 years now and have grown to love the convenience and results they can produce. Like my old one most pellet grills are very thin gauged steel and drastic changes in the weather affected your results. I often thought a heavier gauge steel body would retain more heat leveling out the swings. The YS-640 is heavy enough to level out the temperature extremes. At first I was concerned with the fire box being on one side, would it evenly heat throughout the chamber? To my pleasant surprise it does a great job. Like every cooker you will have spots hotter than others but it does a great job as a smoker maintaining a consistant cooking temp . Another great feature is The YS-640 can actually grill also! When you add the grill grates you can sear just like a gas grill. Most pellet grill manufactures claim they can but the results leave much to be desired. The YS640 is a serious grill and smoker. I have had it for 6 months now and I am very pleased with my investment and my cooking results.
The competition cart is pricy but worth it even if you are just moving it on the patio. I also added the heat shield with the removable door, a must for grilling.
Now the cons,
It is a pain to clean out the ashes. A trap door under the fire box would be a nice addition. Another cleaning issue is when used as a grill grease drops down and collets in the bottom of the grill. Slopping the floor to a drain would be nice. One last complaint would be the black painted surfaces the paint is peeling off already. I had to remove the front Yoder Smoker name badge because it is totally rusting away, and I have a big paint chip gone from where the counter weight rests. They must have some powder coat issues in the manufacturing process.
Pros, I had a service issue! Filled with dread I called Yoder and found they are very easy to work with. They answered the phone on the first call, and had my issue diagnosed in less then 2 minutes. My fuse started blowing every time I tried to start it up, Called them on Monday they diagnosed it as a bad igniter shipped the part to me at their expense. They even told me how to work around it if I needed to use it while waiting on the part.
I would and do recommend the YS-640 to anyone looking for a pellet smoker/grill. Like many of us the decision to make a large investment for an outdoor cooker takes time and research. I hope my fair and honest evaluation of this product helps you decide. Asked if I would buy it again the answer is yes.

This cooker is amazing
I spent over a year researching the different pellet cookers out there. It took me another year to convince my wife that we should pull the trigger on one of these bad boys. This is one bad-ass cooker! Took my wife only about a month to tell me she was glad we bought it. I cook everything on here! Friends and family are amazed with the food and versatility. Little bit of a learning curve with it cooking at altitude(Denver) but it's all dialed in these days. If it's only you that you are convincing; just buy it already! If it's your wife or significant other, be persistant and they will thank you after 1 or 2 cooks!

OMG YS640 where have you been?
I was honestly skeptical on pellet grills, we have Yoder Kingman and it has been phenomenal! The YS640 haunted us for a while and honestly sometime we don't have the time to tend the fire. After pulling the trigger on the YS640 comp cart, we were blown away by the ease of use and the flavor of the food, our first cook was chicken thighs and Beef ribs. SMoke ring and flavor were present. Being a stickburner guy I hate to admit that this cooker is making us rethink some of our catering decisions. DOnt hesitate any longer get you a 640 regardless of the model. It is killer. to see some coks on it you can visit our page www.instagram.com/marbque

Well worth the investment...highest quality, accurate, easy to use (even my wife wants to use it!) and super easy to clean up
I educated myself on all of the pellet unit options and went with the Yoder because of the great reviews and high quality. I have now had 640 for over a month. So far we have made chicken thighs, ribs both St Louis and Back and shoulders. In all cases the smoker temp was right on target with my bi metal thermometer. All three meats were smoked just right (not too heavy). In the case of the shoulders we had 4 x 8.5 lb+ pieces of meat so that took a little longer than we had hoped. To speed things up we gradually increased the temp and within 10 minutes we were locked in. The best is the clean up. Just strip the foil of the diffuser, vacuum the ash and clean out the drip bucket and I was done. My friends with traditional offset smokers take hours to clean their units. In many cases that prevents them from smoking more often....not for me!

Don't even think about it - just order it!
One of the best investments that I have made EVER! This cooks perfectly. Holds a very steady temperature since it is constructed of heavy gauge steel. Perfectly smoked food every time/

You don't know what you are missing !
I love it ! Heavy Duty ! Super Quality ! Very versatile ! Much quicker warm up time for steaks than I would have imagined.
Hard to mess up a cook on this one. All my neighbors want to buy meat for me to cook/smoke. Only downer is shipping 400lbs to California. But I would do it again !
