    Victory pellet smoker review

    Has anyone bought a Victory 35" pellet smoker? I am looking for a budget pellet smoker and am seriously considering either the Victory 35" pellet smoker and the Pit Boss 820. Looking for advice, reviews, comments, etc. Thanks.

    Hmm. That Victory line looks interesting.

      I do not buy the first generation of products. Let others work out the new product problems.

        We will review Victory product ASAP but may have to wait until the new year. We may start with their gassers. I've overdosed on pellet grills once again.

            My new Victory Pellet Grill arrived last week. Very well packaged and easy to assemble. Very solidly built. It is a lot of grill for the money. I am new to pellet grilling, so still learning. So far I have cooked chicken, St. Louis ribs, and a Boston butt. The chicken was outstanding. Crispy skin, super moist, and a kiss of smoke. The ribs were a bit disappointing. A bit dry and lacking smoke. The dryness was my fault. The smoke I attribute to the pellets I used for that cook (Pit Boss competition blend) and that it is a pellet grill and does not put out the smoke that my Kamado Joe does. For the Boston Butt I used Pit Boss Hickory. Much better, but still a bit lacking in smoke. Super moist and tender though. Going forward I will most likely continue doing long cooks (Boston butts, brisket, etc) on my KJ. I have purchased a smoke tube and will be testing ribs more ribs next week using it and hickory pellets. And, of course, pay much better attention to my technique.

            Overall, I really like the Victory and, as I gain experience, see it being used a lot for a wide variety of cooks. It is well built, super convenient, and the pellet hopper is huge (29 lbs). It holds the pit temp spot on and the food probes are very accurate (read the same as my calibrated instant read thermometer). I will post more after a few more cooks.

              Would be curious to see what you think of its searing abilities!
