Questions about FireCraft® Pellet-Q450™ Pellet Grill
« Back to product
What is the pellet consumption of the 450? How long can one smoke with the 18lbs of pellets? I know some smokers have up to a 40 lb hopper so I am just trying to determine if that is a real advantage or not. Thanks.
Good question! It is really going to depend on what temperature you are cooking at and how much food you are cooking. The 40lb hoppers are a great option but not really nessisary. Almost all cooks can be done start to finish with 18lbs of pellets. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to call in at 1800-745-6109.
How is the grill for doing steaks burgers and things like that?
It does a great job! We will soon be releasing our direct grill center which will only make it cook these types of higher temp foods even better.
I am a little confused by some answers to the questions, one answer says the grill is 430 stainless, but another says the legs are 304. Can you clarify?
Sure can! Our grill is made of 430 SS. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask.
What is the grilling / smoking surface ? Stainless or cast?
Thanks for checking out or grill! The grates are nickel-plated steel, which has a very similar appearance and performance of stainless steel.
Hello, please provide a little input on the structural integrity of the legs and casters on the Q450. They do look a little flimsy in the pictures. I am familiar with the Traeger Lil Tex Elite 22, so a comparison between the 2, structurally, would be great.
Good Afternoon, Though I can understand how at first glance you might think the Q450's legs look flimsy, I assure you they are every bit as sturdy as the Traeger's legs. Due to the folds in the metal, the number of bolts holding the leg/skirt pieces together and the fact that it is stainless steel, the Q450 stands quite firmly. Please feel free to let me know if you have any further questions or concerns. Thank you, FireCraft Customer Service 1-800-745-6109
What is the weight of the Q450 pellet grill?
Good Afternoon, The weight of the pellet grill is 125 lbs. I hope this helps, feel free to let us know if there is anything further we can do for you. Thank you, FireCraft Customer Service 1-800-745-6109
What is the temperature deviation from the set temperature under real world conditions? +- 5, 10, 15, 20 deg? Thx
Thanks for the question! In reality is should be very close to you goal temperature no matter what your set temperature is. This is due to the PID controller we are currently using in our grill. The short of it is these types of controllers will constantly monitor and change the performance of the grill no matter what the ambient conditions are and no matter how much food is cooking on the grill. This always keeps the the internal temperature of the grill as close as possible to the set point.
Are there any accessories available for this grill? I'd be most interested in a second (upper) rack.
Good Afternoon, We are currently in the process of fabricating a few different accessories but aren't quite ready to announce release dates. Keep your eyes on our website and facebook page to be the first to hear about the new parts! Thank you very much, FireCraft Service 1-800-745-6109
