    Cuisinart Woodcreek 4-in-1 Pellet Grill, by Max Good
    https://amazingribs.com/ratings-revi...1-pellet-grill

    Cuisinart has once again won us over with their bounty of useful extras that make Woodcreek an appealing package deal. The charcoal insert provides sear power, and if you haven't used a griddle outdoors, you will after trying theirs.

    That’s clever. I wonder why they felt the need for the ceramic briquettes, when the charcoal is perfectly adequate. Maybe some folks felt they’d miss that gas grilling experience on the pellet cooker?

      Can you say "lava rocks"? Seems like what is old becomes new again. I've not had a grill since the 90's that used ceramic briquettes or the old sack of lava rock between the burners and the grate...

    There are some neat new concepts coming out. Looks like manufacturers are really paying attention (not necessarily to their testing though, I guess they are clamoring to be first).

      It's a pretty cool time to look at the pellet and related cooker market. There's a network effect that allows new comers to come in. Pellets are in every hardware store. I'm seeing adverts for Kingsford pellets at Home Depot.

      I think it was an obvious time for pellet and related cookers to blow up. It fits with a larger trend. Instant Pot, Sous Vide, smart induction cooktops, hell, even blower fans for charcoal. I think of the Masterbuilt Gravity as a related to pellet cooker... Same concept, just with briquettes.

      Whereas once upon a time there were specialty pellet players, you now see Weber, Oklahoma Joe, and now Cuisinart getting into the market. As noted, Kingsford is into pellets now. I expect to see more expansion and more features that come with larger companies. That charcoal tray on that... that's clever...

      As always, great review. Am curious about ash clean up after using the charcoal tray. If I'm not mistaken, I think Napoleon has a similar insert for their gas grills, which I have the same question, what about the ash? I guess a shop vac is in order.....

        Great write up. The charcoal feature is nice. And for $600 it's nicely priced. Interested in real world daily use.

            had hands on this thing when I saw it at wally world a while back, it's actually a bit more sturdy than the camp chef models I have messed with and I'd even argue that it oddly feels more solid than the weber smokefire. Glad to see it's a capable cooker. Never expected it to be perfect, especially with how many gadgets it comes with, but I'd really like to see a lot of the ideas transfer to other pellet grills in the future (built in storage for racks, etc...)

              If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

              Placeholder

              The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              Placeholder

              The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

              Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

              Placeholder

              The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

              Placeholder

              The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

              Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

              Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

              Placeholder

              The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

              The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

              This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.

              Napoleon's NK22CK-C Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.
