While I love the ease of cooking with my new pellet grill. Ash in the cooking chamber and on my food isn't working for me. The lack of smoke while I knew before purchasing it , is a lot less than I was expecting. I guess I can hook up a smoke daddy for that. Mid to high temp cooks result in hard crusty ash build up on grill grates, and on drip pan, and visible ash on food. I was told this would subside, but after multiple cooks, I'm not seeing any difference. I clean the ash out every cook to try to keep it from blowing around. I guess I'll have to do low, and slow on the pellet grill, and keep my medium, to high temp cooks to my Weber, and my offset smoker. Very disappointed.
