This is a very nice pellet grill and will do the job of cooking or smoking the food.

      Hi Kenneth,
      The Memphis Pro Pellet Grill is a very fantastic grill. The price is around $3500 or more. The hopper where the pellets go handles 18 pounds of pellets. There are two hoppers with 9 pound’s each. The Memphis Advantage is cheaper. Its 26 inch compared to 28 for the Pro. It handles 12 pounds of pellets. Both are great grills. If you aren’t willing to spend that much,consider the Rec Tech pellet grill which isn’t as good but its a lot cheaper.But the Memphis Grills will last a long time due to double wall construction. Also they are Stainless Steel. If you have any more questions,contact me.
