Looking for the best smoker grill under $500? I think I found it here on Amazon http://amzn.to/2sXBPsT . The reason I think its the right pellet smoker grill is because of its portable, trust me once you start using one of these pellet grills you will want everyone to taste the fantastic food you cook on it.
Unfortunately when I bought my camp chef pro dlx portable pellet grills like this werent around yet, I love my grill but bringing it everywhere is tough due to its size.
You could just wait for prices to come down but remember smoker grills are relatively new and I dont think the price will drop much, heck they might even go up in price, they are that good.
I would be Leary of off brand names with cheap prices, you know the old saying you get what you pay for.
