Z GRILLS 2022 Upgrade Model ZPG-550A 8 in 1 BBQ Pellet Grill & Smoker Auto Temperature Control (Rain Cover Not Included)

Perfectly sized for smaller families and couples, the 550A is a rigorously tested pellet smoker designed to create authentic smoky flavor. The smart digital control also ensures excellent results without the need for constant monitoring. A wide temperature range allows you to cook from low and slow to hot and fast with confidence and ease. Covered in high-temperature powder coat, the heavy-duty steel body ensures years of wood-fired flavor.

NOTE: A hexagonal smoke tube quickly turns any grill into a smoker, adding a savory smoked flavor to your food. Use it to hot or cold smoke meat, fish, vegetables, nuts, and even cheese.

PELLET GRILLS VS.

TRADITIONAL GRILLS

Pellet Grill

Precise temp Set & forget 8-in-1 Pure smoky flavor Cooks evenly

Digital temperature controller maintains precise temperatures.

“Set & forget” operation eliminates the need to babysit the grill.

Hardwood pellet cooking system infuses excellent wood-fired flavor.

8 cooking styles: sear, smoke, BBQ, roast, char-grill, braise, bake, and grill.

The convection heating process ensures even cooking while eliminating flareups.

Charcoal Grill

Hard to control temp Messy Cooks unevenly Flareups Requires tending

  • Temperature is tricky to control by adjusting the charcoal, the air flow, or both.
  • You must frequently check the temperature and add/remove briquettes as needed.
  • Different areas of the grill will be different temperatures.
  • Take time to light and get up to temperature; can be very messy.
  • Cooking food with direct heat causes uncontrolled flare-ups and you're more likely to burn it.
  • Gas Grill

    Not safe Imparts no flavor Tricky to control Burns food easily Cannot smoke

  • You’ll need to be very careful about the fire hazards associated with gas grills.
  • Gas is odorless and tasteless.You'll be missing out on that smoky flavor.
  • There is a learning process in getting a precise temperature.
  • The open flame will burn the surface of the food before the inside cooks.
  • Unable to smoke & not designed for cooking low and slow.
  • Electric Smoker

    Cannot grill Less smoky No smoke ring Drys food

  • You cannot grill on an electric smoker. The temperature won’t get hot enough.
  • You're going to miss that rich, smoky flavor that you would get from a pellet grill.
  • It's highly unlikely to get a nice bark and a smoke ring on an electric smoker.
  • A tendency to dry out food (water pan required).

    FAQS

    Know more about our 550A pellet grill with these Frequently Asked Questions and Answers

    Q

    Q What is the difference between 550A and 550B?

    There are three main differences.

    One is in the temperature controller. The 550A has a digital temperature controller, and the 550B features a PID controller for more precise temperature control.

    Secondly, they vary in hopper capacity. The 550A has a large 16 lbs hopper, while the 550A’s hopper capacity is 10 pounds.

    Lastly, the 550A has a slightly larger cooking area than the 550B.

    Q

    Q Can I sear on a Z Grills?

    Yes, you can. Searing occurs in the area of meat that touches the hot grate where the temperature is between 350-500 °F. So it’s easy to achieve a perfect sear with Z Grills.

    For searing meat over an open flame, Z Grills 600 series of pellet grills provide a direct flame mode that reaches a high searing temperature of up to 750 °F.

    Q

    Q Does everything put on a Z Grills get that rich smoky flavor?

    Cook all your favorite recipes on the Z Grills, because everything that can be cooked, will taste better cooked with a savory, smoky flavor. Smoke will be visible in cycles at temperatures of less than 250°F, infusing rich smoky flavor to your food. Above this temperature the fire will burn hotter and cleaner with less smoke.

    Q

    Q How long does it take to assemble a Z Grills pellet grill?

    Z Grills pellet grills are easy to assemble with all the tools supplied. All you need is open space and about 30-60 minutes on your hand.

    Great pellet grill for the price!

    Bought my 550a during a flash sale on Home Depot’s website ($349) about 2 months ago. I’m a Weber gasser guy, but I’d been curious about the whole pellet grill rage, so this entry-level grill was perfect for what I had in mind. It’s actually exceeded my expectations! I only use it to smoke proteins when time allows, and it does that very well! I do use a smoking tube when I want more smoke; it makes a big difference. This little grill is efficient, holds temps very well, and is solidly built. I highly recommend it!

    Best Investment Ever

    Amazing! You can grill quick shrimp in 8min at 400F to smoke a Chuck roast for 11h at 165F. I will never have a grill anymore, highly reccomend.
