You heard it! Yoder Smokers are the real deal. Named the Best Pellet Grill of 2023

When it comes to outdoor cooking, having a wide range of cooking styles at hand is not only convenient, but at times essential. With so many pellet grill choices on the market, it’s important to look past the “marketing polish” in order to truly make the best decision for grilling versatility. One standout option that has caught the attention of experts and backyard pitmasters alike is the Yoder Smokers YS480. Recently chosen as the best pellet grill choice for 2023 by Men’s Journal, this grill outperforms its crowded competition and offers an array of features that make it a clear choice for outdoor cooking enthusiasts.

Unmatched Versatility: While nearly every pellet grill available today boasts the ability to “do it all” with convection heat, the Yoder Smokers YS480 rises above the competition due to its ability to truly do everything from true direct-flame grilling to smoking low and slow, baking pizza, and much more. With just the push of a button, this grill transforms into a versatile backyard barbecue powerhouse. Whether you’re in the mood for a perfectly seared steak, succulent smoked ribs, or a crispy wood-fired pizza, the YS480 has got you covered.

Superior Performance: One of the key reasons why Men’s Journal lauded the Yoder Smokers YS480 Best Pellet Grill choice for 2023 is its exceptional performance. While there are numerous pellet grills available, the YS480 outshines them all with the ability to maintain precise temperature control via Yoder Smokers’ proprietary ACS digital controller engineered in the USA. Whether you’re aiming for a 700-degree high-heat direct sear or a traditional “low & slow” smoke, the Yoder Smokers YS480 delivers exceptional flavor and consistency to your culinary creations.

Built to Last: Another deciding factor that sets the Yoder Smokers YS480 apart from the pellet grill crowd? It’s American Made. While nearly all pellet grills are imported, the entire Yoder Smokers product line is handcrafted with meticulous attention to detail with heavy gauge steel, right here in the USA by skilled craftsmen. You won’t find an assembly line here, but rather a dedication to quality ensures that your Yoder Smokers YS480 will withstand the test of time and provide you with years of reliable outdoor cooking.

Review of the Yoder YS480s

Adding a pellet grill to the backyard barbecue line-up has become a necessity among most home grillers. These grills use wood pellets slowly fed into a firebox to provide steady indirect heat that imparts a clean smoky flavor to whatever you cook. Yoders are the Cadillacs of the bunch and are still made in America. You get a high-quality build that's good enough for the pros to use—heavy-duty is an understatement, their smallest weighs 255 pounds—and they are crafted in Kansas out of 1/8-inch steel. 

But they aren't just a hulking metal shell like old school barbecue pits, they also come with up-to-date features like WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, temp probes, and a ceramic ignition system. Grilling space is a generous 800 square inches (you can upgrade to 1,070 with the 650s), and there's 12 inches of vertical space in the box for plenty of room to grill beer can chicken or a full turkey. And opening an access door in the diffuser allows you sear up to 700 F directly over the firebox flames.
