Blaz’n Grill Works in Beatrice, NE, manufactures a line of 3 residential pellet smokers. The basic design is typical of many pellet smokers, but Blaz’n Grill offers a few unique features.
Foremost is the easy clean burn pot which allows you to bypasses the task of lifting the greasy grates and drip pan to clean out ash. Simply slide out the burn pot with a handle located on the right. Just be careful when it is hot!
These smokers also utilize a stainless steel, disc shaped heat deflector that rests under the drip pan. The bottom firebox is double walled for better insulation and a hood insert is optional for the lid. The Blaz’n crew also believes their round rod auger transports pellets more smoothly than square rod augers, thus reducing wear on the motor. They will even do custom powder coat colors and/or cut your name into the grates.
All 3 models have a 30 pound capacity hopper with an Ortech digital temperature control and auger driven pellet transport. A large stainless steel drip pan under the grates tilts downward and empties into a small bucket outside the firebox. Stainless steel grates, warming rack and front shelf are standard. The body and cart are powder coated metal with caster wheels.
And then there is the very modern sleek design of the German built Bob Grillson. A large bamboo cutting board and large wheels. It also comes with cast iron grates and a car battery adapter.
