Fast Eddy's PG500 Expert Review

Because many pellet grills look the same and have similar features, I’m often asked how one differs from another. Honestly, there are so many lookalikes it can be hard to tell. However, with its beefy build, commercial-grade stainless steel construction, and separate direct and indirect cooking zones, the Fast Eddy’s PG500 is truly unique.

Reasons to Buy

When I look at a Fast Eddy’s PG500, I see a heavy-duty cooker that’s reminiscent of commercial-grade restaurant equipment. Made in America by Cookshack, the Fast Eddy’s PG500 is considerably beefier than the typical pellet grill and is one of the few stainless steel pellet grills on the market. Constructed from heavy-duty stainless steel, the PG500 is incredibly durable and seals in heat for more efficient cooking—better heat retention allows it to burn fewer pellets to maintain its heat, even in cold weather. This is truly a year-round cooker that’s built to last a lifetime.

If the PG500 is built like a tank, it performs like a guided missile. In my opinion, automation and ease-of-use are what make pellet grills special, but that doesn’t mean all pellet grills are created equal. While some can remain close to a desired temperature, others can precisely maintain it for hours. The PG500’s Digital Controller can hit a desired temperature and maintain it within a few degrees from start to finish. That kind of accuracy means I can spend less time worrying about the cooker and what it’s doing. It also almost assures I’ll get perfectly cooked food.

What I love most about pellet grills is their versatility, and the PG500 is no exception. Not only is it an indirect cooker that can smoke, bake, grill and roast, but it can also handle direct open-flame cooking. While that’s not entirely unique for a premium pellet grill, the PG500 is different in that it has two separate cooking areas, one dedicated to direct cooking and the other to indirect cooking. There’s no need to take apart and reassemble the grill grates and diffuser plate to switch from indirect to direct cooking while doing a reverse seared steak; I just move the meat from one side of the PG500 to the other.


Reasons to Keep Shopping

The Fast Eddy’s PG500 is a premium pellet grill, but it comes at a premium price. Yet, shockingly, for all of its impressive features, the control board can’t be used with a meat probe. If you want a stainless steel pellet that comes in under $1,000 and includes a programmable meat probe, I suggest checking out the FireCraft Pellet-Q450. Also, while the PG500 is a large grill when you combine the direct and indirect cooking areas, neither is particularly big on its own. In fact, the primary cooking grid for the indirect zone is only 324 square inches, while the direct side is 180 square inches. If you want a larger stainless steel pellet grill, look at the Memphis Elite, which offers more cooking space and more high-end features.
