Louisiana Grills, made by Dansons of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, are second generation pellet burners with double-lined hoods for better heat retention and cold-weather cooking, digital thermostat controls, a full range of temperature options, an on/off switch for generating smoke, and meat temperature probes. The combustion-air fan also circulates oven air, making it a convection oven to reduce hotspots although I have heard users say there is still a hotspot, a common problem with pellet smokers. They have innovative heat diffusers and flareup reducers above the firepot, cast-iron grill grates, and easy ash and grease cleanout from the front. I have heard that it does not hold temp as steady as others, but it gets hotter and is better for grilling meats such as steak. They make many different sizes, models, and designs, from cart mounted to pedestal to built-in with a wide range of features and prices. We have never cooked with any of them, but people I know who have used them say they are equal to or better than the Traegers, below. There are no prices posted at their website and several links are broken. Not a good sign.
