Do you think it will be tough to do steaks on sear plates without this old perforated version?


What sear plates are you referring to? GrillGrates? If so, just take the drip pan out and have at it.

Yes. GrillGrates. Hmmm. Won’t the grease build up in the bottom of the smoker then?

Dave, it looks like you found the perfect setup. Will you be giving demos at HOOTS?

With the grill grates most of the grease sizzles up in the heat. Very little grease actually gets in the bottom of the smoker.

We are very experienced with the different brands of Pellet Grills.

For portability and performance, it’s very hard to top the Camp Chef Pursuit or the GMG Crockett. Each have their advantages.

Currently, I’m carrying the Pursuit and it’s love it. The way they’ve designed the legs is genius. The lids lock which is great for stowing. The drain pan and catch bucket really work. But the real closer is the diverter slide that give you direct flame with a simple pull of a handle. Also, their firebox cleanout is just as easy. These features have set the new standard for others to follow.

It’s a bit lighter than the Crockett, which is bulky like a really heavy Igloo. That said, my wife and I wry easily can lift the Pursuit from the rear half-slider almost as if it was made for it!

Is that using the GrillGrates with only the furnace metal box and NO grease tray?

Not sure I'm buying your analysis, but I wish you were right. I have other CC products and love them. The weight of the Pursuit -82 lbs as posted on their website - killed it for me (Crockett is listed at 68 lbs). Also while most of the dimensions are similar, the width of the Pursuit -38 in - was too much for me to swallow (or fit in the desired bay - Crockett is listed at only 28 inches in width).

We use ours all the time for steaks. Have the Davey Crockett as well.

It will go up to 500 if you open the holes between the two plates and up to 350 when they are closed.

Love everything cooked on it including steaks. Normally just cook them at 350 instead of messing with the plates. Have a Webber Q we used to carry but it just sits in the garage now.

It is “portable” but weighs about 60 lbs. moving into storage compartment and out is a little hassle but wouldn’t travel without it.

Going on our second year with it and lived it so much we bought the next size up for the S&B.

The only questions we have ever got about the smoke and smell are what are you cooking and can we have a sample. End up meeting more people when the smoker is running.

Love controlling it from the phone too.

For storing and making it easier to get in and out we bought the carry bag they sell for it. Has strap handles and fully enclosed the smoker while in the storage compartment. No mess in the camper. Just wipe out the carry bag once in a while.

I still use the grease tray. The firepot of my Junior is on the side and not the middle. The grease tray spreads the heat out evenly.
