Another pellet cooker deal

Postby Papa Tom » Sat Nov 09, 2019 8:44 pm

Academy has yet another great offering :
This is a spittin' image of my Pit Boss 820 that I bought @ Cabelas a few years ago (and love it)
Some things they got right on this
1) The price is the cheapest I have seen.
2-4) The wheels they're steel, they're BIG, they're on the proper end of the smoker (the heavy end)

I haven't measured mine but this may be a tad smaller in that the grates figure to be 657 sq in.
Heck of a deal.

I read the reviews and they are typical those that bought the unit as a smoker like it , those that bought it as a grill not so much.
I have had mine for several years and the only problem was a igniter failure ( pops the GFCI ) I got one from Amazon replaced it and no mo issues. BTW this is the most common failure.
Once again I have been using pellet pits for 20 years ( 2 Traegers, Fast eddy pg500 and the PB 820) I've experienced it all and all in all they've all been satisfactory.
The only customer service I've used were Traeger (they sucked but that was long ago) and the Fast Eddy they were GREAT.

I would not hesitate to buy this unit but I don't have great expectations and have a lot of experience.

PT you most definitely have the experience... :bow: :whiteflag:
but with a webber gasser, charcoal grill, traeger, FEC100, and a cookshack 008, blackstone pizza gasser, the wife would kill me if I acquired another cooker.. or maybe you have a spare bedroom for rent? :laughing7: :laughing7: :rose:
and did I mention 700 lbs of pellets in the garage...
that is a great price :idea:
