Camp Chef pellet grill reviews

camp chef pellet grill reviews

In my research for the Camp Chef pellet grill reviews, I found that this brand makes some great models that receive nice ratings.

Camp Chef Pellet Smoker Models

There are several models in the Camp Chef pellet grills and each comes with its own features.

  • Camp Chef Woodwind
  • Camp Chef DLX 24
  • Camp Chef XT 24
  • Camp Chef SG
  • Camp Chef SE 24
  • Camp Chef SG 30
  • Camp Chef XXL

At this moment I think their most popular model is the Woodwind series. Probably since this is the largest model. So, let’s start with that one.

Camp Chef Woodwind Pellet Grill

camp chef woodwind series

When I started to have a good look at these models I can see why they are so popular. The options you have to buy with or to add later the sear box and the sidekick expand the options you have to use this pellet grill.

The Camp Chef woodwind models have some features in common and the individual model has some added features to this. The common features are:

  • WiFi
  • Hopper cleanout
  • 160 – 500 degrees
  • Ashes cleanout
  • 4 wheels
  • 2 temparature probes
  • Direct flame
  • Pellet view window (Not on the wifi 20)

The Camp Chef Woodwind models are:

Woodwind Wifi 20

The Camp Chef Woodwind wifi 20 is the smallest and has the perfect size for small families. I would like to call it their starter model. Here are the features.

  • 500 square inches total cooking rack
  • 248 square inches upper rack
  • 2100 cu. inches chamber
  • 10 Lbs hopper

Many times a video can explain it a lot better than I can. Here is a video where Guy Fieri (1) has a good critical look at the Camp Chef Woodwind.


Camp Chef SG 24

Since I started with the larger Woodwind it makes sense to have a look at the smaller Camp Chef SG 24. There are 2 models and they are all the same except for the color of the lid. The features are:

  • 811 square inches total cooking rack
  • 382 square inches upper cooking rack
  • 22 LBS hopper
  • Direct flame

Camp Chef SG 36

The Camp Chef SG is the bigger brother of the 24 models.

This is again one of the smaller and more affordable models. It does not have the PID controller but the older type that you have to dial in more. Still a very nice Camp Chef pellet grill for beginners.

  • No upper rack
  • 3778 cubic inches chamber
  • 18 Lbs hopper

This is what Camp Chef calls their portable pellet grill. It is however not much smaller than some of the other models. It can be folded up and that makes it portable.

  • 10 Lbs hopper

Camp Chef XXL

If you like a vertical smoker you must have a look at the Camp Chef XXL wifi vertical pellet smoker.

Camp Chef Pellet Grill Reviews – My Opinion

I did several of the Camp Chef pellet grill reviews on their own page and to be honest, I am pretty impressed. I have read some nice things about them and I believe that the Camp Chef company is taking their products very seriously.

What I read a lot about was the easy hopper cleanout and the easy cleaning in general. I don’t know if this makes them the best pellet grill but I think they are pretty good.

All the options to add the sidekick flat top and the sidekick sear and even the option to add a pizza oven is in my opinion a great selling point.
