We review the Camp Chef Woodwind, their newest pellet grill and smoker! This review will cover everything about this grill. Post any Questions you have and we will do our best to answer them in the comments below. Here are the things we liked most about the product in no particular order:
More Temperature range than any other pellet grill we’ve tried! This grill temperature ranged from about 180*F to 510*F giving you the ability to not only smoke food but to truly GRILL things like burgers and hot dogs when you want a higher temperature and even serve as a real wood fired pizza oven!
This grill gave amazingly rich flavor to everything we cooked from simple hot dogs to Brisket. The Camp Chef pellets lend a rich, smooth smoke flavor unlike some of the harsher flavors that you can sometimes get from some other wood chip or pellet products. There is nothing better to cook chicken and burgers and hot dogs get that extra kiss of smoke flavor. Reverse sear steak off of this cooker will ruin you forever from eating steak out other than from the most expensive steak houses!
The ash management system sets this grill apart in that you can dump the ash from the burn pot without disassembling the grill, letting you go dozens of cooks in between vacuuming out the barrel instead of only a few like most others.
Mobility! The front casters make moving the cooker around a breeze. It’s heavy but with 4 wheels it moves around very easily.
Temperature probe. The probe on the Woodwind lets you monitor your meat easily with a two position switch on the control. Push the button and the display will read the food temperature until you press it again. Great for when you are getting close to your target and don’t want to keep messing with the button. The probe was accurate, and very easy to use.
The Reverse sear burner makes this like getting two grills for the price of one! It is adjustable so you also have a great cast iron burner gas grill on the side that you can cook just about anything on as well as a sear station that will go to 900*F!
The only thing we didn’t like is the guard screen within the pellet hopper. It was in the way when changing pellets making you have to use a little rake tool that comes with the grill to work around it. None of the other pellet grill have this and you can remove it to get back to normal and irritate lawyers. Of course you do so “At your own risk”. This is a minor irritation for what otherwise is one of the best thought out smokers we have ever cooked on!
Overall we highly recommend the Camp Chef Woodwind for anyone looking for a pellet grill. It has more features than any other we have tried, and is extremely well thought out with the cooking enthusiast in mind. www.campchef.com
