Purchasing a grill can be tricky these days because there are just so many to choose from. Today we are going to be reviewing the Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill. Is it worth buying?
Features of The Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill with Sear Box
The Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill with Sear Box comes with a lot of features to enhance the quality of your food and the overall grilling experience. First of all, you have to understand this is on the higher end of the price range among pellet grills.
Even though it is still under $1,000, and there are plenty over this price, the Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill with Sear Box does come in at over $800, so it is on the higher end. Whenever looking at a product that is priced a bit higher, we always believe that you should check if it has enough features to justify its price point.
The Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill with Sear Box was designed with smart smoking technology. This allows you to set the temperature that you want right on the digital temperature control. This control sends a message to the auger inside the grill, that is fully automatic, and the pellets will be fed right into the grill, maintaining the heat of your choice.
This allows it to produce the best amount of smoke possible to have that authentic wood-fire taste. This grill allows you to use it without any babysitting, and you can just set the temperature and forget about it.
Another reason that the Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill with Sear Box is so popular is its versatility. You are able to grill, smoke, bake, roast and braise your food (meat and veggies) and change your style whenever you want.
This single grill can do it all, and even if you want to change it up for one night, it is so easy. There is a large range to choose from when it comes to temperature and you can cook from 160° up to 500°.
In order to cook for an entire family, this grill comes with 570 square inches of cooking area, which is more than enough to load up the grill. There is also an upper warming rack that is perfect for toasting buns or slowly cooking an item. This rack is also removable, so if you want the most amount of space possible you can have it.
One of the most iconic features of this grill is the Camp Chef-patented ash cleanout. This makes it so easy to get the ash out of the grill by simply pulling a lever to the ash cleanout system. This is something not found on other grills.
If you want to really sear your meat, the Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill with Sear Box comes with a sear box that can actually reach temperatures up to 900° Fahrenheit allowing the crispiest meat that you can ask for. You can barbecue your meat on the grill and then pass it right to the sear box for a fantastic finish. The sear box is fueled by a propane tank.

Before you consider purchasing a new grill, you need to know where you are going to put it and how many people you will be cooking for, in addition to the types of cooking you want to do on it.
This is going to directly influence the size of the grill you can buy, and how much you can spend on it. We recommend taking the time to understand the grill you need in order to narrow down your search.
With that being said, the Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill with Sear Box is definitely one of our favorite grills on the market. This grill has everything that you would want in a pellet grill and more.
You can set the temperature you want, it has a lot of cooking space, and it is easy to clean. We did find it harder to use the ash cleanout during a colder day, but in the summer, it is a not a problem.
