Introducing Yoder Smokers - Now Available at Atlantic Outdoor
Missy McCabe·January 24, 2023
In the world of traditional, low & slow BBQ, there’s a name that stands out from all others. Yoder Smokers are a cut above the competition… and rightfully so, because they build some of the best consumer and competition-grade smokers & grills in the world. These American-made behemoths are prime examples of the kind of workmanship you don’t see all that often these days. Solid, heavy, gorgeous, and total workhorses. Meet the Yoder Smoker lineup at Atlantic Outdoor!
They’ve made their name producing solid, premium quality grills for those competing at the highest levels of BBQ around the world. But Yoder also offers the same high-level caliber of product for pitmasters at home that demand more from their equipment.
Yoder has stepped into the 21st century with a range of grills that cover all the bases for size, fuel type, and style. You can stick (pun intended) with the tried-and-true, classic offset smoker style (often referred to as a “stick burner”) that uses wood as its fuel source. Charcoal enthusiasts are well looked after, with several consumer and competition-ready models purpose-built for charcoal grilling applications. And finally, those that love the convenience and automation of pellet grillswill find they don’t need to sacrifice the Yoder quality to modernize their cooking approach.
Yoder Loaded Wichita
The best offset smoker
This is THE classic. The Yoder Grills - Loaded Wichita Offset Wood Pit. Now equipped standard with cooking door counterweight, heat management plate, and the second level shelf slides out for easy access. Built with ¼” steel to keep the heat in, the cooking chamber is SO roomy, with 1600 sq. in. of cooking space for any size cookout.
Offset smokers are one of the more traditional formats. The firebox is fixed to the side of the cooking chamber. As the wood burns, smoke drives across the cooking chamber, over the food, and out the other side through the exhaust chute. With a simple design, no electronics, few moving pieces, and rock-solid construction, this is the last smoker you’ll ever need to buy.
Yoder Flat Top
World-class charcoal grills
For those who still prefer low-tech cooking, but appreciate a different format for their cooks, the Yoder 24” x 36” Flat Top Charcoal Grill is a lot of BBQ in a slick, efficient package. 864 sq. in. of cooking surface gives you ample room to work with. Plus, a variable-height charcoal basket, and the ability to easily switch between direct & indirect heat make the Flat Top a versatile and extremely solid charcoal option.
Yoder Pellet Grills
You may think there’s an upper limit to just how good a pellet grill can be, but if that’s the case, you haven’t met a Yoder Pellet Grill. These beasts come equipped with all the features you’d expect from a solid pellet option, but are a cut above the rest, in terms of build quality.
Modern features like WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, a versatile temperature range (usually 150-600 degrees Fahrenheit), and integrated temperature probes all come standard.
The main selling point of them, though? Yoder Pellet grills are unique in providing you the option of cooking over indirect heat, AND direct grilling over the flame. We cannot overstate how incredible it is to have this option, as it eliminates one of the main limitations of pellet platforms.
The Yoder Grills - YS480S Pellet Grill is the compact entry in this line and offers all of the exciting pellet grilling features in a reasonably sized form factor that won’t leave you feeling short on space. It offers 800 sq. in. of cooking surface to work with.
Yoder YS640S & YS640S with Competition Cart and Stainless Steel Shelves
When you can’t give up much cooking space, the Yoder Grills - YS640S Pellet Grill should have ample room for even your biggest cooks. 1070 sq. in. is a TON of grilling space.
Competition models from Yoder add the iconic organic competition cart to help you stand out from the crowd, heftier stainless steel shelves, and large 8” casters with flat-free tires.
