Camp Chef Woodwind Wifi Pellet Grill Overview | Cook With Wood Fire from Your Phone | BBQGuys


Hi, I’m Randy with Barbecue Guys. Today we’ll be checking out Camp Chef Woodwind
Pellet Grills. The one we have here is the 36 inch, this
is the 3rd generation that now features Wifi. They also have some really cool accessories
that add tons of versatility. (Intro Logo)
The Woodwind Wifi 36 features a 22 LB. capacity pellet hopper with a Wifi PID controller mounted
on the front. It’s full color display makes it easy to
set your cooking temperature. Low and slow smoking on this grill is as easy
at it gets, dial in a low smoke mode of 160 degrees, or a high smoke of 220, for a worry
free cook. Or, dial in a target temperature in 5 degree
increments anywhere between a low of 160 degrees and a high of 500F. Of course, with the Camp Chef connect app
at your fingertips, cooking with woodfired flavor has never been easier. Whether you want to add some smoke to a dessert,
or crank up the temp to grill some crispy wings, the Woodwind Wifi has you covered. About one of the hardest things you’ll have
to do with this grill is decide what flavor of wood pellets you want to cook with. Camp Chef offers all the classic smoking wood
flavors, in addition to some blends that are sure to compliment whatever food you pair
it with. The front of the pellet hopper has a window,
making it easy to keep an eye on your fuel level. Once you’re fueled up & a target temp is
set, the auger at the bottom of the hopper transports the amount of pellets needed to
the firepot to reach and maintain your target temperature. The airflow to the firepot is automatically
controlled by the integrated fan, stoking the fire as needed. In addition to being able to set and monitor
this grill from your phone, Camp Chef has added Smoke Control to the Woodwind Wifi grills. This allows you easily choose how much smoke
you incorporate into your cook, by selecting a smoke number of one through ten. With this added control, you can really dial
in the smoke intensity to your preferred taste. From the looks of this smoke ring, you can
certainly tell this brisket soaked in some smokey flavor from the wood fire. To help keep an eye on the internal temp of
your food, Woodwind Wifi Grills come with 4 temperature probes that plug directly into
the PID controller. Easily set goal temps for each, and within
the app you can even label the probes. You’ll even get a push notification when
the food is approaching desired temp. Inside the Woodwind Wifi 36, you’ll find
a multi level grill area. The top rack is split in two pieces for versatility. Combined, they provide 573 square inches of
space in addition to the main cooking area. For longer cooks, I like to put a water pan
on the bottom level, and use the top rack to set something like this brisket above it. Over the course of this 13 hour cook, this
really helped prevent the meat from drying out. With all racks in use, the Woodwind Wifi 36
provides 1,236 square inches of cooking space. To give it some scale, this is what it looks
like loaded down. Definitely enough room to cater for a party
or cook your entire meal at once. The top racks easily slide out, for cleaning,
or when you may want them out of your way. The main grilling area on this model measures
34 in. wide by 19.5 inches deep. Underneath the grids, you will find the drip
tray. This provides plenty of coverage for diffusing
the heat coming from the firepot as it rises, allowing you to smoke with indirect heat across
the entire grill. The drip tray also provides a surface for
drippings to vaporize off of, adding to smokey flavor. Any excess grease drains to this bucket on
the right side of the grill. You’ll notice the left side of the drip
tray is louvered, this is part of Camp Chef’s Slide and Grill technology. The heat deflector is built on a sliding rail. Use it like this for an extra layer of heat
diffusion – or slide it out of the way for grilling over direct flame. Let’s say you’re grilling wings. You may want to start them off over indirect
heat, to let em smoke for a while.. Then slide the deflector over for direct heat,
to help crisp and caramelized your sauce. The firepot is made out of 304 stainless steel,for
durability. For easy cleaning, Camp Chef’s ash cleanout
system lets you empty the firepot with a simple pull of this knob, located on the lower right
side of the grill. Once emptied, the ash can be disposed of by
removing this cup from the bottom of the barrel. For times you want to swap pellet flavors,
the back of the hopper has this pellet cleanout chute. There is even a “feed” setting on the
controller to force out any remaining pellets left in the auger. The lid of the Woodwind Wifi is made out of
stainless steel, for a sleek look, and environments where you may need added insulation, Camp
Chef offers this insulated blanket accessory. It came in handy when smoking this brisket
through a cold night. The Woodwind Wifi 24 and 36 inch models have
several side attachment options. You can configure your grill with a side shelf…
sear box.. Or the sidekick, like we have here today. This is their most versatile option. The sidekick power burner comes standard with
this 7 ga. steel griddle plate. There’s nothing like making your breakfast
outside. For easy cleaning, excess grease drains to
this removable cup. When you want to cook over the power burner,
simply lift off the griddle top. The sidekick’s power burner provides plenty
of room to fit a large stockpot. The burner itself is cast aluminum for longevity,
and is rated for 30,000 BTUS of cooking power. The heat can be throttled back to saute or
simmer sides, as you would on a standard sideburner. Adding even more versatility, Camp Chef offers
a pizza oven accessory, that sits above the powerburner – using it’s high heat output
to bake crispy pizza. For times you may be in a hurry, and need
the convenience of a standard gas grill, Camp Chef also offers a BBQ Grill box accessory. The high heat output of the powerburner, paired
with these cast iron grids can put a steakhouse quality sear on anything you grill. Under the grates, you’ll see the heat diffuser
panel, which helps spread out the heat from the burner beneath. These burgers came out great, and it’s awesome
being able to cook up some quick burgers while waiting for your brisket to smoke. Hang your propane tank from this included
hook at the back of the grill. An optional Natural Gas conversion kit is
available. Other nice features of the Woodwind Wifi include
a port on the side for threading through temp probes… a protective cover for the PID controller…
a chimney cap to keep out the elements, and a bottle opener on the front of the hopper. Thanks for watching today. If you have any questions about Camp Chef’s
