  • The grill sears perfect steaks, chops, fish, seafood, or burgers at “steak house” temps of up to 750° F.
  • The oven bakes bread, pizza, casseroles, cobblers and pies better than your kitchen oven.
  • The smoker infuses turkey, ham, lamb, chicken, ribs – even cheese – with an aromatic wood smoke flavor at a controllable low heat of 200°F to 350°F.
