The Tailgater is serious fun, wood-fired business. It's perfectly portable, and fires up full-fledged flavor on the fly. Get ready to grill everywhere.

The Process

  • Convection Process

    An induction fan circulates rich, hardwood smoke throughout the cook chamber for even heat and epic flavor distribution.

  • Hopper

    Load the hopper to the brim with 100% Hardwood for hours of smoking and grilling without reloading.

  • Auger

    It fuels the fire, moving Hardwood from Hopper to Fire Pot—briskly for hot and fast, or gradually for low and slow cooking.

  • Firepot

    A hot rod at the bottom of the Fire Pot ignites the Hardwood, keeping the fire going so you can relax and drink a cold one.

  • Energy Economy

    Powered by a standard, household outlet, it uses 300 watts for the first four minutes and only 50 watts for the rest of the cook.

  • Shut Down Cycle

    This sweet setting keeps the induction fan running for 10 minutes to lift residual ash from the fire pot and shuts off automatically.

Great Grill!
Recently bought this grill through my job..put it together by myself with no problem at all..used it to smoke a 12lb came out awesome! Smoked it for 12 hrs..nice smoke ring, juicy. I HIGHLY recommend this grill if you're a beginner, or if you just plan on small cookouts. Love it! I just wish it had a grill cover and came with at least one bag of pellets.

This day has been a great model. We use it 5 to 6 nights a week. Never had a problem after 4 years. Home cooked food is now better that eating out!
My only regret is not getting a larger model.

Q. Does the Tailgater have a hopper cleanout so I can change pellets?
San Ramon, California
A. This particular grill does not have a hopper clean out. To remove pellets from the hopper, use a cup or bowl until you reach the auger and then fill the hopper with desired flavor.
