About the Yoder Smokers YS480 Pellet Grill
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.

Note: the YS480 model pellet grill is now shipped unassembled in a box to reduce freight damages. We can no longer install dial door thermometers on the lids because of this packaging change. If you'd like to add a door thermometer, you can order one here and install it when you receive your cooker. We cannot unbox the grills to add these items.
