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.

Dont make the same mistake I made.....
I always look at reviews. I compare the 1 star and the 5 star reviews. This gives one a good idea of where people stand. Don't make the same mistake that I made. I had a 640 comp cart for two years. I thought that I had enough BBQ on it. I sold it and bought a new Big Green Egg with all of the fixings....Last week I sold the egg. Today I bought a YS640 comp cart because I just couldn't live without it. The Yoder is a superior product.

Best grill ever. Impeccable customer service!
I purchased the Yoder Smokers YS640 on competition cart about two months ago and have had nothing but great things to say about it. From the twelve hours low and slow, to the reverse sear on the grill grates, this grill has come second to none on any functions. The customer service makes you feel like you are part of the Yoder family and made me feel very comfortable with every contact we made during the purchasing process. Say what you will about the price, quality comes with a hefty price tag. I worked 44 hours worth if overtime at work to pay for it and was worth every minute. This grill will last for years and many, many cooks. Thank you to Yoder Smokers and to All Things BBQ for the incredible experience and of course, thank you for the amazing products. I really put my stamp on the bbq trail in Michigan with the purchase of this pellet smoker. Grill on, ya’ll.

Great Smoker - Great Service
So here's the deal - I have put a LOT of pellets through this thing and they are all turning out great food. I LOVE this cooker.

Now, that was all expected, because Yoder has put out a proven product, and everyone who uses one loves them. What caused me to write a review, happened over the weekend.

I noticed a while ago that the outer fan in the hopper was not spinning . I decided to email Yoder about this on a Saturday night, as I was starting a couple of pork butts.

I sent an email on the evening of 6/16 not expecting an answer until Monday, but the morning of 6/17, I had my first response with suggestions on troubleshooting. The email came in as 12:14 AM - AM!!! Because I wasn't done cooking, I couldn't really get it done, so on the evening of 6/17, I took apart the hopper and checked all the wiring per suggestion and everything looked good. I sent an email at 7:34PM on SUNDAY evening 6/17, and had a response from Herb at 10:10 that evening that they are sending me a replacement fan.

I've worked with a LOT of companies over the years, and had to deal with a ton of customer service, and not ONE TIME have I EVER received customer service like this. It was WAY WAY WAY above what was expected or necessary. Thanks Herb from Yoder - your customer service is amazing!

Best Grill I've ever had
I ordered the YS640 w/competition cart and received about 3 weeks ago. I first smoked some split chicken breast with the Mad Hunky rub around 220 degrees and they were just amazing...next I tried Rob's Rib's recipe from smokingpit.com rubbing with Mustard and putting brown sugar and of course the mad hunky rub and they were incredible. Next was the direct grilling test....Filet Mignon and New York Strip....absolutely amazing...I am so glad I went with this grill....I have had a green egg, Holland gas grill, Weber's and they don't touch the YODER....they got it all Direct grilling and smoking...Simply put MOST AMAZING GRILL AND COMPANY TO WORK WITH...thanks for making this old chef look good.

Held 235 +/- 5 degrees for 14 hrs!
Awesome unit, lots of space, and holds temps perfect! First cook was (2) 15 lbs briskets, and they turned out awesome. Had plenty more room, nothing even on the top shelf, both briskets and a basting bucket fit on the bottom shelf. Could have easily done 2-3 pork shoulders or 4 slabs of ribs with that same cook.

This is the big difference on the low and slow!
I am completely converted to pellet cooking and based on my friends' results with the best known competitors it is clear that Yoder is the right solution. Temperature control at (e.g) 225F for 12-14 hours is no problem. I get 600F+ with grillgrates when I want to sear. Cleanup isn't more difficult than other smokers, easier than some. I wish I had purchased the competition cart. I did have hole put in for temp probes, the external wire shelves and the top grate....all recommended.

Best Look'n as well as Cook'n
The YS640 is the best a wonderful outdoor cooker. Built like tank! I have made countless meals on it for family and friends and haven't made a bad meal yet. The very first thing I made on my YS640 was a whole Packer Brisket, (against the advice of the people from the Pellet Head Forum) and it came out very moist and tender, had a beautiful smoke ring ( something I could never get with my electric smoker). When you add the Comp Cart to the YS640 it becomes a thing of beauty! With its large wheels it rolls over any terrain with ease. Don't forget to get the custom made cover to protect you investment and keep it looking as good as the first day it came on the pallet! Another thing that made me go with the YS640 was that it is made in the U.S.A.
So if you want to cook the best BBQ you have ever made make the investment in the best in the YS640 or one of the other Pellet Grills made by Yoder!

Fire and Forget, On Target Smoker!
Consistent, versatile, easy to use, giant confidence builder. It is very hard to go wrong with a YS640. I got mine 3 years ago in standard form. I added the comp cart because I started to need to take it to cookouts and parties. One person can move it with ease on the cart. I even got it into the back of a pick-up with ATV ramps. This smoker will change your life and your BBQ!

Great smoker.
I have put about 250 lbs of pellets thru my YS640 with Competition cart and have produced some of the best bbq I have ever made. This cooker gave me the confidence to hit the competitive trail. The competition cart makes moving this heavy built pit easy for the team and the rock solid temperature control makes producing winning bbq a snap.

Best all around cooker I've ever used
The Yoder YS640 is one of the best cookers I have ever used, and I've used a lot of different styles of outdoor cookers. Simple operation, and absolute top notch food quality makes it a very attractive cooker for anyone, novice to seasoned cook. I have cooked as high as 500 degrees for steaks and burgers, and as low as 160 degrees for smoking home cured bacon, and everywhere in between. Quite simply, the YS640 nails everything you cook on it. I have cooked over 30 different things on mine so far, and everything I've cooked was either the best it has ever turned out, or equal to what other quality cookers would do. It has given me the confidence to try things I haven't tried before, and they came out fantastic. If you want one cooker to do everything you wanted to cook outside and more, this is it.

Also something you don't hear a lot about is it's very quiet! The pellets dropping into the fire and air traveling through the fans is all you hear.

The Comp Cart makes moving the YS640 very nice. It rolls very easily over any terrain and makes it very solid and sturdy while traveling. The tie downs for hauling the cooker is a very nice touch.

The build quality top to bottom is top notch, and the best part is it's made in the U.S.A.

The 640 Comp Cart smoker is an incredible machine. Temps are very stable and easy to control. The food that comes off this cooker is excellent.

Even more important is the level of service that I have received from All Things BBQ and Yoder. They go above and beyond to make sure the customer is happy with the product. Just can't say enough good things about this aspect. Thanks guys!

Best damn pellet grill on the market
This thing is a piece of work. The quality of this grill is absolutely stunning. There is no smoke leakage at all like the cheaper quality peller grills. I made the best bbq on this grill. The customer service was excellent. I am proud to be a Yoder owner. I opted for the comp cart because I hate to live in regret and even though I don’t do competitions it makes this a heck of a lot easier to move since this thing weighs a ton. The price can be a bit intimidating but you truly get what you pay for. My only regret was starting with a cheaper grill and not buying this sooner. Thank you Aaron and everyone at yoder for the smooth transaction. This thing was packaged nicely!

Yoder pellet smoker is the way to go!
I absolutely love this smoker! I’ve looked at a lot of different smokers. Nothing compares to the build quality of a Yoder pellet smoker. Does everything as advertised. All things barbecue was a great place to buy the smoker. I don’t have a dealer near me so I had this one shipped from All Things Barbecue. They were extremely helpful and got the smoker here ahead of schedule and with no damages. There are a lot of future purchases that I will make with all things barbecue because of their service.

I looked at all the normal prospects. While this was not the cheapest it certainly wan't the most expensive. After taking delivery of it I cannot believe the quality of the build. I couldn't be happier thus far and have done 3 different cooks on it. If you are on the fence do not let the price scare you away!

AWESOME smoker! Buy it you won't be sorry.
I researched smokers for a couple months before deciding to go with the Yoder YS 640. It was the cost that I was struggling with. It took 10 weeks to arrive and was in perfect condition and all the accessories I ordered were there as well as a couple bags of pellets. After unloading this well made smoker and putting on the grates,shelves... I can see why the Yoder cost a little more. This is a tank!
I've used it about a dozen times now between smokes and grills and it's AWESOME! Easy to use, easy to clean and the food taste great. I LOVE this thing and enjoy using it so much I've started smoking foods and bringing it to work to share with fellow employees. If it's the $ that's stopping you from buying the Yoder just trust me and buy it. You won't be sorry. The only thing I wish they would change is I ordered the optional diffuser plate with the door and received both plates. I have no use for the diffuser plate without the door.

Best Ive Ever Owned.
first off this is a TANK they didn't wimp on the steel its well crafted made in the USA. unlike its tin can competitors on the market. this can easily grill up some steaks or burgers on the grill grates and you can do some awesome low and slow smoked meats on it. you can even cold smoke with just the fans on. this is by far the best investment I've ever made. it was a lot of money at first but I'm glad to have it.

Turning this thing on was a revelation.
I’ve just fired this thing up for the first time. It’s easy to talk about the build quality (top class, almost overbuilt in a good way) in a way that makes you think the 640 is sort of like a brute tank and wasn’t necessarily designed with aesthetics as the top priority, but when you get it set up at your place it is absolutely gorgeous. I got the black competition cart and it is stunning. The paint job almost looks better than my car.

Next, starting it up was a revelation. From YouTube videos of most other pellet smokers and seeing some in action, you can get the impression that pellet grills sound like an ultra loud hideous contraption. The sound of turning on the 640 is like turning on a luxury vehicle- powerful, but very quiet, feels almost silky smooth to your ears. It sounded ultra sleek and honestly surprised me the most out of anything.

The smoke this thing puts out was basically immediately the thin-blue-smoke that every stick burner maestro spends ages perfecting. With BBQ’ers Delight hickory pellets, the smell had me salivating from the get-go.

The comp cart wheels are performing excellently in my back yard, which is not smooth. I have been able to roll it around on the dirt and grass with the large wheels that come with it, and the extra wide stance of the comp cart is quietly the best part of getting the comp cart. People don’t really talk about the bonus of the extra wide stance with the comp cart, but it’s immediately noticeable what it does for you when rolling it off the delivery pallet (on my own with no help) and to your back yard spot.

I’ll try to update this review when I get a few more cooks under my belt. All I can say for right now is that I’m dreaming about all the savory stuff I’m going to smoke.

Mile High Yoder Smoker!
I ordered my YS640 last November. I added the comp cart, (for ease of moving it around) stainless steel shelves and diffuser plate with the door. And the grill grates. It arrived via FEDEX freight the second week of January 2017. Since then, I have been cooking some of the best steaks, brisket and pork I have ever cooked. WARNING! Do not buy this smoker if you don't want your neighbors asking you to cook for them! Yoder products will bring your cooking skills to levels never before reached. Perfect brisket was something I had tried to achieve over the years. With little success. But with the YS640 it's soooo easy! Yes, I know it's expensive. Believe me, it's worth every penny. Quality, customer service and ease of cooking make the Yoder purchase a no brainer. If you're looking for the best, and the best cost a little more, you can stop looking. Buy yourself a Yoder and enjoy!

Can't imagine there is anything better!
I looked at pellet grills for over a year, trying to find the right one. I was leery of spending so much since I am a huge fan of offset smokers. Unfortunately, they can be time-consuming and I rarely have the time to do a long cook on one. I researched several brands and decided it was Yoder or nothing. After the agonizing 15 week wait, I received my smoker and was a little disappointed when my 2 piece heat deflector was not shipped with my smoker. I called All Things Barbecue and got to talk to an actual person right away, They spoke English and knew who I was right away. Within seconds they said they would ship one out. It arrived FedEx the very next day. I have had it a couple of weeks and already did three cooks on it. The first cook was 5 slabs of ribs, could have easily put a few more on there. The second was 4 beer can chickens, could have done at least 8. The third was 3 10lb Boston butts, could have held 6 easy. I have tried the BBQ delight pellets that came with the smoker, and some 100% Hickory lumberjack. Both worked great. With the thermal jacket on, it is using less than 2lbs an hour. The pork roasts cooked for 10 hours, and the hopper still has a few pounds left in it. Combined with an Amazing Tube this cooker gets really close to offset smoker flavor with out much effort. While cooking I needed to run to the store to get some sides, came back 2 hours later, and the things were humming away at 220 just like I left it. The temperature does read hotter than my Maverick by about 20 degrees, not sure which one is more accurate because the Maverick is pretty old. The thing heats extremely even. I cooked some bacon on it after the initial burn in, and it cooked evenly throughout the smoker. I haven't grilled anything yet, but I have no reason to believe it won't excel at that too. I do highly recommend the 2 piece heat deflector option, that should be standard. I couldn't be happier with my purchase, and hopefully, this will help someone else with their decision. I don't think you could go wrong with this smoker or All Things BBQ.

Well made and great quality
This is a heavy duty smoker. Although more expensive than others, it is clearly of higher quality. The smoker was sent Fedex freight and was extremely well packed. I didn't have a single scratch on the unit. Assembly is simple--add the shelves and the stack, and put in the diffuser and grates.

Love cooking on my USA made YS640!
I've had my YS640 on the competition cart for one year. I live in New England and am able to use my smoker all year long. In the winter I use more pellets than in the summer, but there is nothing like the smell of smoked pork cooking in the middle of January! The unit was well packaged when shipped and there was no damage. I absolutely love the grill grates and would consider them a must have accessory. Reverse seared thick rib-eye steaks are amazing and the grill grates allow that to happen. Since I've gotten the YS640, my gas grill sits unused! I would highly recommend a Yoder.

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!
