The coyote does it all! Smoker, grill, and sear. As a smoker, you get nice smoke rings and flavor while the grill holds temperature steady. The sear is great, im convinced it gets way hotter than 750 degrees. Perfect for smoking a thick steak and adding a nice char. I was most suprised that grilling 350-700 worked so well without direct flame. Amazing grid marks and even heat distribution. the unconventional grates are one of my favorite features, easily cook vegetables and fish without them falling through. Ive smoked 5 racks of ribs and 5 pounss pork belly in one go without problem. This is well worth the extra money from some of the other mainstream pellet grills, this is a full blown replacement for your gas grill and smoker! Build quality is great and customer service was great when I called with some questions around maintenance. Best value for the quality and performance, i will have this for many years. Only thing that I didnt like was the shipping experience, my item arrived 2 weeks after the estimated delivery noted online. I likely would have bought local if I knew how misleading that was, but now that I have it I'm happy.
