Product Details

Warning: Camp Chef’s SmokePro LUX Pellet Grill & Smoker is not for the faint of heart. With a total of 875 square inches of cooking space, this pellet grill has the capacity to cook for even the largest groups. That’s some serious meat. But with all that size comes the same fantastic features of Camp Chef’s other smokers: digital temperature display, easy setting selection, automated pellet auger. Smoking your food has never been easier. And don’t forget about the exclusive ash cleanout system; Camp Chef provides the easiest way to clean out your fire pot after each cookout with the pull of a lever. Less time to clean, more space to cook. What’s not to love?

*For best performance, we recommend using Camp Chef's Premium Hardwood Pellets. The 100% natural wood (no additives or fillers) burns cleaner and more efficiently, and offer a superior taste.


VESTA 2015 Winner

The SmokePro LUX Pellet Grill was given the Vesta Award, an industry-exclusive honor, for its innovative cleanout system and user friendly design.

Camp Chef SmokePro LUX 36 Pellet Grill - Black is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best grill on the market. Once you cook with pellets you will never go back. received this smoker for xmas and have cooked on it every weekend since. If you live in the cold I would suggest you purchase the blanket as we had a couple of sub zero days and the blanket helps to keep the heat in. I have been making jerky and dinner every weekend. The jerky is amazing as I used it for venison, beef and chicken jerky. I have cook to perfection a couple of back straps by using the meat probe. Hamburgers and hot dogs take on a great new flavor and the meat is always juicy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holds Temps Great, Smokes Perfectly Great Smoker/Grill. Love to smoke 8 Butts at a time on this thing. Holds them perfectly and quick and easy to clean. The Pellet Dump makes changing Pellets a cinch. The Ash Clean Out makes it nice to drop before a new smoke so you don't have to vacuum as often.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy slow cookin This pellet grill is an AMAZING one! With the huge cooking area, it has been easy to smoke multiple types of meats, like chicken, pork, and beef...all at the same time. I just checked the meat temps to ensure it was cooked all the way. I have had mine for about 10 weeks. I do a lot of food prep on the weekends, so that I have meals for the week, so this works out perfectly. That means less time in the kitchen which is a win for everyone!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Smoker, Great Company I've had my smoker for a little over a year now and thoroughly enjoy using it. We've smoked everything from brisket (turned out very well) to potatoes. My extended family is always asking what we're going to smoke next? Camp Chef's customer support is among the best I've dealt with. I had a problem with the controller earlier this year and had to contact support for assistance. After double checking and verifying my problem they immediately provided a replacement. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Couldn't be happier I have had my Camp Chef Pellet Grill LUX for a few months and I couldn't be happier. Before I decided on my purchase, I did a lot of research on other brands and found that the Camp Chef had the most features, for the best price. Win-Win! The pellet hopper, has a pull out, which makes it easy when you want to switch flavor of pellets, instead of running the pellets all the way of the hopper and auger chamber. The other feature that Camp Chef has, that I haven't seen on any other pellet grills, is the ash cup clean out. It's nice not having to get out the shop vac every time you are done cooking just to clean out the fire pot. This pellet grill cooks great and has plenty of room! It will fit at least 6-8 full pork butts (depending on size). I put 7 in there for a work party, and it cooked like a dream. Filled the hopper and it did the rest. I am very happy with my purchase and I would buy this pellet grill again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smoke Pro I have 2 other pellet smokers and I have to say I Love this smoker. I have had nothing but good to say about it. From a little bigger grill surface than my Elite, the hopper dump, and the burn pot dump it is great. Definitely my go to smoker. The jerky rack is a perfect fit and I was able to fit 8 lbs of meat on the jerky rack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best investment ever I've had my smoker for over 2 months. Everything I've smoked is some of the best food ever. Should have bought my Camp Chef way before now. Nothing cooked in the stove anymore.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice smoker but junk wheels and wheel locks Nice smoker but the wheels are extremely cheap and the wheels will not lock in place so it gets pushed around by the wind. One issue is the when smoking the ash goes everywhere inside the unit so keep a vacuum ready when you are cleaning up the smoker. You can't easily get the gate open to dump what little ash is left in the burn chamber. Designers need to look at a fix for these issues. You would think with a retail price over 1400 bucks with the sear box, cover and heat blanket for cold winter days; the wheels would be better quality or larger and the ash would stay in the burn area. It just a matter of time before the front small wheels give way to the weight of the unit from moving in and out of the garage. On a positive note, the garage makes you hungry every time you pull your car in with the residual smokey smell of the food you made prior.

Ash Cup Cleanout System

Our specially designed ash cleanout system means less maintenance than other pellet grills. After your grill is cool, simply pull a lever on the side and all of the leftover ash falls into the cup where you can easily discard it. This means you don't have to vacuum out your fire pot after every use like other pellet grills.
