Camp Chef Pursuit 20 Portable Pellet Grill is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality & features I bought mine in June 2019, and as of Dec 1 have run more than 6 bags (120#) of pellets through it. Ribs, pork butts, sausage, meatloaf, meatballs, thick chops & steaks, prime rib, salmon, wings, beer-can and bricked chicken, kabobs ... Still doing research before tackling a brisket (thanks Franklin & Tom). The unit is easy to start & heats-up well. Maintains fairly consistent temperature. Develops great smoke ring & flavour (yes I'm Canadian). I rarely use the 'slide & sear' except when camping (I have other grills for high-heat searing). Lumberjack brand pellets leave very little ash. Cleaning is straighforward and should not be neglected: shopvac the dust out of the base + apply degreaser / brush all-around. The patio cover is good quality; I'm waiting for them to offer an insulating blanket for cold-weather cooking (please?). Others have commented on portability: Yes it is 100# and a little akward to fold-up etc. - but I say it's worth it vs alternatives - folks are always very happy to see it / enjoy the resulting food at a campsite / tailgater. No Regrets - I remain very very satisfied with my Campchef Pursuit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice unit. I bought this a month ago and am very happy with it. I like the ash dump and the 2 temp probes. It is simple to use and takes your food to a higher level.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Auger seizes up Just bought Pursuit 20 and never stays running. Auger is weak and won't pull longer pellets through. It has plugged up every single time. If I stand there and hand feed it works. Using camp chef pellets.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great smoker Works great but hopper should have been pitched some pellets flow better. Also a little heavy for one person to load in camper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size Loving the size of the Pursuit. Small enough to collapse and take tailgating yet still holds a ton of food. We did burgers and pizza this weekend. It’s worth every penny!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Solid Small Pellet Grill This is a great smaller pellet grill. It is by no means lightweight or poorly made. It is heavy, but I can move it by myself with the solid leg/wheel structure. Overall the construction is solid. Nothing feels flimsy or lightweight. Setup is fairly easy, removing all the packing and protection takes about 1/2 an hour. Getting the legs extended makes it a lot easier to setup. Make sure you read the directions about how to unlock the legs top and bottom! After it is up, it is easier to attach the handle and get everything unpacked. Attaching the handle is about the only assembly required. Everything else is already assembled. All stickers are attached with magnets and come off easily with no residue. There is plenty of room inside for 2-3 chickens in upright or lying down, a turkey or a couple of pork shoulders. The startup and process of cooking is clear from the manual and easily accessed control panel. The 10# hopper seems sufficient for 6-8 hours of slow cooking. Higher temperatures will require more monitoring of the pellet level as it burns through them faster. There isn't an easy way to empty the hopper if you want to switch pellets. I've seen small shop vacuum solutions that is probably the best way to go to clean out the hopper. You'd have to remove the top grid to do it by hand or vacuum them out. It would be nice to have an empty function like some of the larger Camp Chef grills. Cooking doesn't seem to add as strong of a smoke flavor as some of my other smokers. You may want to buy a small wood chip box that sits on the grill, and provides some more direct smoke if you like the stronger flavor. The included probes plug in easily and seem to work well to monitor the meat temperature from the control panel. The bottle openers works well! I did purchase a cover for it and that is essential for weather protection of both the electronics and metal parts.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Disappointed I’ve had the grill just under a year, and while the food is good, the quality of my unit leaves a lot to be desired. This was my first grill, and I bought it because of the portability and the Camp Chef brand name, so my expectations for quality were high. I’ve used the grill a lot and as I commute, the grill is on the move a lot. My biggest gripe is the paint Quality. I don’t know what paint or powder coat they use on the grill but it is not durable enough for this grill. I have several spots where the paint is falling off and rust is developing on the inside and outside of the grill. mind you, I followed the initial instructions in the manual for making sure the paint was set before doing any cooking. clearly this didn’t help as i am finding new areas paint is falling off every time I use the grill. The second gripe is the metal support for the auger motor. If for some reason your grill auger gets stuck on pellets ie moisture or some other reason, the flimsy metal bends, effectively stopping the auger and your cooking. It just seems like that part should have been beefier or solid from the factory. I’ve had to use wood shims to keep the auger motor stable enough to turn properly. The third gripe is the ash clean out slide plate. For some reason mine likes to not close properly so I have to be super careful to make sure it’s closed properly before I start the grill. For those reasons I can’t give the grill more than a 3 star rating. The 3 stars is solely based on the food produced, which the guys at the firehouse loved. I have yet to have a bad meal, I just wish the durability and quality would have been better. I did purchase this right when it first came out so it could have been a fluke and maybe I’m the only one with these issues. I can’t recommend against the product but would hope Camp Chef takes my feedback and improves the grill as I believe them to be a good company. More than likely I will wind up repairing and painting the grill this winter.
