Rated 3 out of 5 by from Grill works great....wifi controller not so much I bought this grill 6 months ago to replace a Traeger that we'd used a thousand times and rusted through. In general, it is sturdy and well built. It holds temperature well and the ability to go to high temperatures to grill is awesome. The grill functionality itself is very good. The only two major drawbacks are that it takes much longer than the traegers to pre-heat and the wifi controller has been a total bust. We've tried everything and it will not link to the app. Unfortunately, customer service has very limited hours during the week when I have to work....so we have yet to get that going.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Looks great. Functionality is a different story I recently purchased a Broil King Baron Pellet 400 (arrived on May 3rd from Home Depot). I’ve been having some issues with it. The unit looks great and easy to assemble. I was so happy when I received it but have a few concerns. 1. During the initial burn in, I set the temperature to 500 degrees as the instruction said. The temperature was increasing until it reached 384 then started decreasing. It continued to decrease down to 324 and hovered around this temperature. I checked the hopper and I could see the pellet going down so it was feeding the firebox. I could also hear the fan going. I let the grill run for another 45min but the temperature just wouldn’t go up. I ended up turning off the grill because it was not performing as it was designed to and I didn’t want to waste any more pellets when it couldn’t get to the 500 burn in temperature. 2. A couple of days later, I used it for the 1st time for grilling food. I set it to 325 but the temperature kept fluctuating. It would go up as high as 365 and as low as 290 but wouldn’t stay at 325. I can understand plus/minus 10 degrees but the variation to the set temperature was significant. I thought perhaps it’s ‘breaking-in’ period. I used it again the 2nd time and same result. The temperature just fluctuates about plus/minus 40 degrees from the set temperature. The grill can’t seem to maintain or regulate temperature. At this point, I stopped using the grill until I understand what is happening. I like the look of the grill but I’ve used/wasted more pellets than I should have. 3. I like the grills as they are cast iron but they are not pre-seasoned. I knew this going in and I work with cast iron a lot so I knew what to expect. This is more of a reminder that food will stick to it until it is preseasoned/aged. At this point, I'm not really sure if I should continue using it as I seem to be using pellets but not getting desired result. I am even torn at buying the cover for it because I'm not sure if I should return the unit. I want to feel satisfaction with this purchase. I like Broil King as they make excellent products and I want to feel hopeful that this pellet grill will perform. Can Broil King please contact me at the email I provided? I'd like to know how I can get this unit operating as it is designed to or what my options are.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice grill I bought this grill 2 weeks ago after researching different grills and if I may be honest I probably would have bought the regal and spent the money. I find it overshoots the set temp by 50 deg although it does come down it takes a while. This is my first pellet grill so maybe they all do that, I don't know. I have not tried a long cook yet, so I'm curious to see how it will work keeping temp. The app is simple, I wish it had more features, but it works fine. Overall I am happy so far, but time will tell.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well built but takes forever to heat up I just received the bbq on the weekend and cooked some ribs and seared some steak which both turned out great. Seems well built and was easy to assemble I did notice in the reviews that people had a hard time with the app but figured that was in 2019 so this would be sorted out. I was wrong. Customer support did email me and I assume they will get it going for me so not a deal breaker. By far my largest gripe is the time it takes to heat up. About 20 minutes to 350 but it took 48 minutes to get to 595 and a fair amount of pellets to get there. It was about 19c yesterday so not to cold. Spoke with a csr at Broil king and they informed me it takes anywhere from 40 to 70 minutes to preheat to full temp. It did hold temp well at both high and low heat when it got there. I thought I could try the broil king pellets to see if the time improved but they are not readily available in my area. The csr said I could order them direct from Broil king but only by phone. Unfortunately my wallet was in the car and I waited on hold for 30 minutes to speak with a rep so that's not a viable option. Broil king please add online ordering or make your pellets available t I currently own a Broil king gas bbq and its great. I guess time will tell with this grill

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Smoker This is a great little smoker! Perfect for my balcony apartment! there is even has an app that lets me watch over my food when I am inside watching the game! I can set it and forget it! The new apple blend wood pellet is the best! I mix it with the grill masters blend!! Perfect for my beer can chickens sliders!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great feature, poor temp control It really has a hard time keeping proper temp. Set it for 180 and went up to 211. Clean out tray awesome and wifi is awesome too just wish it kept better temperature control

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good pellet grill Bought this a month ago. It is taken awhile to get to the temperature range. Would be nice to have more info on cooking temps and suggestions. Bluetooth is very handy

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good. Great grill! Very happy with the grill and the quality of construction. Having some trouble controlling the grill with the Bluetooth app though.
