Pellet grills are hotter than ever right now amongst would-be pitmasters, and it’s not without good reason. For one, they’re incredibly easy to use, meaning pretty much anyone is capable of getting that rich smokey flavor from their meats. But that’s not all; they’re far more consistent than their gas and charcoal counterparts, and they offer tons of versatility despite being smaller, self-contained setups.
As if that wasn’t enough, though, many brands are now integrating pellet grills with advanced onboard computers and fans in an effort to bring some technology to the experience. Case in point: this option from ASMOKE. Like its predecessor (the AS300), the A350 boasts a spacious 256 square inches of grilling area — even despite having a super-portable footprint. Under the hood, however, ASMOKE has reworked the design to make it more capable than ever before. With the new ASCA system, for instance, it can now autonomously steam your food, allowing you to prepare perfectly cooked meats up to three times faster than a traditional grill. What’s more, the ASCA upgrade means that the AS350 is also completely self-cleaning, automatically collecting ashes for a hassle-free tear-down. Topped off with a deeper lid (capable of fitting a whole turkey), an updated stainless steel interior, and a larger side bucket for collecting grease, it’s made only better by its affordable $429 price point.
And here’s the kicker: if you back it on Indiegogo now, you can score an ASMOKE AS350 for only $339. Just be sure to pick up some of their pellets, too, as they’ll really take your grilling game to the next level.
