Default Yoder pellet smoker

Any of you guys own a yoder pellet smoker? If so are these smokers really designed to set and forget, also do they put out enough smoke to get a good flavor and smoke ring? I'm thinking on buying one. Thanks

Yes and yes. Do a search for Yoder and you will see lots of threads on them. Most guys use at least a 640 for comps, and the big boys use a 1320 or the new 1500.

As The Dog said, yes and yes. The Yoders put more good, non creosote smoke food on food than most other pellet grills. Turn it on, set the temp, come back when the cooker is preheated, put on food, wait until done, eat. It's that easy.

I enjoyed mine so much I upgraded to the YS1500. I just got it yesterday and I will be posting a lot about it in the next week at least. So far, I'm thrilled with it.

Loving my 640 it's a milder smoke taste but the smoke ring you get is so satisfying it feels undeserved haha

I have never seen a better smoke ring on a brisket than what comes off my 640

I thought the 640 was the my favorite brisket cooker ever until I got a 1320.

I was wondering how big that top shelf was. I thought it looked small in other pics. Nevermind....
