Today’s post is about another smoker that I have been using for a while, the Z Grill Model 7002 Pellet Grill.
I have been using the Z Grill for two years now. This was my first pellet grill and I quickly learned how fun and easy it was to use this style of cooker.
Here is the Two Year Review of the Z Grill that I put together.
This grill is essentially a clone of the early Traeger grills. It is a no frills type of product so there isn’t Wi-Fi connectivity or a fancy PID controller. What you get with a Z grill is an inexpensive cooker that works great as a smoker but mediocre as a grill.
When I first got this grill it maxed out at a temperature of 400F. The last time I tried getting this guy up to high heat 385F was the best that it could muster. On the flip side, this grill can get you anywhere in the 225-275F range and hold it all day.
The end result is that I started smoking all of my ribs on the Z Grill and grilling all of my chicken wings on the Weber kettle.
The Z Grill has help up great over the years. The only issue that I ever had was when the connector between the temperature probe and the control panel got wet. This caused the control panel to throw an error code and the grill wouldn’t start. It took me about 30 minutes to get the connector dry and after that I have not had any problems.
All in all I have been pretty pleased with the grill. It has made me happy!
I hope all of you cool cats out there are having a great week 🙂
