Enjoying my PG500, 5/15/2013
I got a PG500 several months ago. It came very well packaged, however I was surprised when the FedEx delivery guy showed up at 8:30 in the dark with a semi-truck and not something more suitable for the location. So far the cooking experiance haves been great, I use it several times a week. I use the grill for burgers and steak and I have used the other zones for pork butts and ribs. The wife is learning how to use the correct zones. I have not used the cold smoke/warming drawer yet. I wish there was a rack avalable for that space. I have no problems starting or controlling the temperasture, but I wish it were a little easier to change the HTT and the LTT, not that its difficult, I just have big fingers and wish there was a bit more of a positive feel to the button. I have the optional front shelf that is handy, but think a shelf between the legs would be good for storing racks and other accessories that are tollerant of heat and weather. I wish the power cord was detachable and there was a power strip on the back to plug in accesories. A top self with an air gap would be nice for warming plates without them getting too hot. Overall the cooking experiance has been a 5-Star, but there could be a few refinements that make it a 5-Star all around.

This is a great grill and smoker in one. Easy to control the temperatures and the steaks, ribs and chicken turned out great!
Great Grill and smoker, 1/25/2014
purchased over the holidays after a good bit of research into pellet smokers that could grill too. when i ordered i has high expectations. the pg500 met those expectations. it grills better than any LP grill i have ever owned - the ability to sear is great. first meal i cooked was a 13-lb turkey and it was perfect. have smoked turkey and ribs so far and it was flawless. i have grilled shrimp, porks chops, steak, and salmon ad the grill is spectacular with pretty even heat in the direct heat area. i live in atlanta, and have used the grill when the ambient temperature is in the mid 20s - not insulation and no problem...it reached and maintained temperature perfectly.
I am very impressed with the PG500. it is a pellet smoker that really does grill well (albeit small direct grilling area).. After researching the competition, i thought this woiuld be best for smoking and grilling. it has delivered on that potential. I highly recommend this product.
Karen has been a pleasure to work with - she will treat you well and make sure your grill is right. Delivery is drop ship - it was palletized and secured. The driver wheeled it to the location i selected.
I am hard to impress...this grill is fantastic. everything they advertise is true - a fantastic grill and smoker. if you can live with the small grilling area, you will be very impressed with the quality and performance of the PG500.
Last word - not a negative remark, just FYI. It uses wood pellets - and generates a lot of smoke. you will need to plan for its location - not near a door or window.
You will love the PG500!!!!
