Overview

Whether you're camping or just staying home cooking on the patio, ASMOKE has pellet grills to fit your needs. Fueled by their 100% all natural applewood pellets bringing fruit smoked flavors, delicious food is easy to cook.

In all ASMOKE grills, the process is simple. Fill the hopper with applewood pellets, connect your smoker to a power outlet (or a portable power station), select your desired temperature, and you're off to the races.

As with pretty much any wood pellet grill, an auger automatically feeds pellets from the hopper into a firepot where they ignite. The precise temperature control maintains your desired temperature throughout the cook.

Above the firepot there sits a flame broiler plate with a slider. This allows for indirect grilling and smoking when the slider is closed, or direct flame grilling when the slider is open. The ASMOKE grill grates are porcelain-coated cast-iron.

ASMOKE Grills

Whether you're looking for a portable pellet grill or a full-size pellet grill, ASMOKE has both varieties available.

How does the ASMOKE AS300 compare to the Country Smokers Traveler?

The Country Smokers Traveler is another portable pellet grill in the same price range as the AS300. Both grills provide the exact same 256 square inches of cooking space. The overall dimensions are very similar, with the AS300 measuring slightly greater in depth and weighing 5 lbs more. The hopper capacity of the AS300 is also .5lb greater than that of the Traveler. The Traveler comes with a 3 year warranty, whereas ASMOKE offers a 5 year warranty. 

Currently the AS300 costs about $25 more than the Traveler, however it includes a meat probe and waterproof cover, which the competition does not.

AS350

Asmoke AS350 portable pellet grill

The AS350 ASMOKE portable pellet grill measures D 24.4" by W 17.52" by H 16" and weighs about 49 pounds.

Like the previous model, it also features a total cooking area of 256 square inches made up of the main rack (191.4 square inches) and a removable upper rack (64.6 square inches) however, this model has a taller lid and offers 6.5" of total cooking height between the main grate and the lid.

The cooking chamber for this ASMOKE portable grill has space for smoking 1-2 racks of baby backs, one good-sized whole chicken, 8 burgers, or 12 hot dogs at one time.

The hopper has a capacity of 4 pounds of wood pellets.

Cooking food low and slow or grilling over a direct flame are both possible with a temperature range of 180° to 500°F and include a color LED digital temperature controller as well as a probe port.

The all-new ASCA System is brand new on this model of ASMOKE pellet grills and is the main feature that really sets this apart from other pellet grills. This grill now includes a liquid tray and an ash cleaning tray. You fill the liquid tray with your preferred liquid (anything from liquid seasonings to diluted sauces to wine or more) and it creates superheated steam that actually processes the food 3 times faster than traditional grills. The cooled-down vaper then works to auto-clean the grill. The ash collects in the specified tray and makes for simple cleanup after your cook is complete.

In addition to the ASMOKE portable pellet grill itself, also included are the precision tracking stainless steel meat probe, removable grease tray, and "secret random accessories". The grill cover will have to be purchased separately for this unit.

The AS350 is available in 3 colors: burgundy red, navy blue, vibrant orange.

How does the ASMOKE AS350 compare to the Traeger Ranger?

Comparing these two portable pellet grills is a little more of a stretch than our previous comparison. But it is interesting to look at, none-the-less.  While the AS350 is larger in size and cooking surface, the Traeger Ranger boasts a hopper of twice the capacity and weighs 12 pounds more. Both grills include a temperature probe, however the Ranger features a digital controller, which is a significant upgrade from the AS350; probably the main reason for the price difference of $70.
