Yoder YS480 Hardwood Pellet Cooker

If you are searching for a single grill to perform all of your outdoor cooking needs, the YS480 ( smaller brother to the YS640 )  Hardwood pellet cooker from Yoder Smokers is the answer. Traditionally, hardwood pellet fired grills have been excellent at smoking and baking but lacked the focused heat at the grate to be considered a serious direct grill. Yoder Smokers has overcome this challenge with their YS Series of pellet cookers outfitted with their direct grilling package. When fit with this package, the grate temperature on the left side soars past the 650-degree mark and produces those coveted steakhouse quality grill marks, fast cooking times, intense caramelization, color and texture common to cooking over an open fire or gas fired grill.
Yoder YS480 Hardwood Pellet Cookers also offer superb quality and taste when used traditionally as a pellet fired smoker. With second-to-none build craftsmanship, the YS480 Hardwood Pellet Cookers help to produce the flavor that only wood fires can produce, all with the ease of “set it and forget it” operation.

Yoder Smokers, Kansas USA

Yoder Smokers are handcrafted in Kansas USA, the heartland of American Barbecue territory, by highly skilled boilermakers.

They are NOT the typical barbecue pit you buy at just any barbecue store. These pits are designed for use commercially, at

the biggest BBQ competitions, and in your own backyard where the competition can be just as stiff.

Ask any owner of a Yoder Smoker why they chose a Yoder pit and you’re likely to hear things like: “It keeps an even temperature”

, “the build quality is second to none” and “It really keeps in the heat”  In other words, people who really know BBQ recognize

the quality workmanship put into every Yoder YS Pellet Grill/ Roaster/ Smoker, and how those “extra details” can make all the

difference in turning out mouth-watering BBQ.

So, if you are looking for a BBQ to last you a lifetime that “just works” with unmatched versatility, then the Yoder YS Pellet is for you.

You will see the difference in build quality compared to any other brand. If you do decide on a Yoder, only when you get it home

and fire it up will you fully understand why Yoder Smokers is top of its class both in America and now in Australia.
