WHY ARE PEOPLE RAVING ABOUT SMOKE PELLET GRILLS?

Watch Video

Professional delivery and installation is available for every product we sell. We would be happy to coordinate delivery and installation for you.

Extended warranties are usually very inexpensive and can save you thousands in the future. Some can even cover extra costs that result, such as cost of food that spoils when your fridge dies. It's simple and inexpensive to purchase extended warranties and one of the smartest ways to protect your investment.

Appliances can be large, heavy and expensive. You probably don't have the special tools or expertise needed to fix them in a crisis. If you can spare a few thousand dollars without batting an eyelash for new appliances should they break tomorrow, don't buy a warranty. But if you're like most of us, protect yourself by purchasing inexpensive extended warranties when you buy a new product and save yourself big money in the long run.

Great smoker

DavidW 4/18/2022

The smoker was easy to assemble very well built. My only issue was installing the wheels the threads were painted over making it difficult to tighten the nuts one of the studs actually broke off but I was able to fix it. Operation wise it has been good the temperature probes are garbage both read very different temps so I rely on my own manual probe. The app works but I dont rely on it 100 because it tends to glitch out half the time. The auger definitely doesnt like larger pellets so get the smallest ones available. Other than those few small things its been very reliable.

Never Worked sent parts told service it myself

Brian4 2/20/2022

Bought the smoker and it never was able to set on the temperature I wanted. Instead of replacing the grill I was sent parts with no instructions on how to replace anything. There are multiple wires that need to be disconnected and reconnected and even then there is no guarantee that the smoker would work for the first time. Pretty terrible from a manufacture and customer service aspect. Would recommend going with a different brand.

Joshua MacD23 7/31/2021

The grill is extremely well built for the price. But I cannot give it 5 stars because the app on your phone for controlling it is horrendous Temps are way off compared to phone doesnt work when setting from phone. List goes on useless app. If they can fix it then its 5 stars cast grates are nice love the flip for grill marks and flip to other site for basting channels. And just very heavy sturdy grill.

Great smoker but....

Mike1972 5/17/2021

I am new to smoking and did a lot of research into buying a grill and found this to be the best bang for dollar. With insulated lid and higher cooking temperature it suited all my needs. That being said I have not had great success with the remote app. I did speak with someone at CS and they assured me someone would call to help rectify. That was 8 weeks ago. So I called again and was assured it would get resolved that was 2 weeks ago. So app is still not functional for anything at all. This part has been a big disappointment as it would be nice to monitor temp and probe temps from afar.

KB07 4/30/2021

This is an AMAZING pellet grill My husband surprised me with this grill and I am so happy with it. The Regal is so solid and well made. I love the lid the heat stays in this grill even when you open the door. Heats up quickly and temperature remains constant. I love the meat probes. I have read a few people say that they were off but I have had no issue and they seem quite accurate. The display is fantastic nice and bright and easy to read. The ash cleaning tray is brilliant. I love the settings for smoke roast and grill so simple. The bluetooth and wifi are easy to install and the app is great. I have had 2 Traegers and this is by far a superior product and its made in North America. Dont hesitate to buy one of these grills you wont be disappointed

NewBKFan 2/14/2021

While Im new to pellet grills Im not new to grilling and smoking and I did a huge amount of research on which brand to go with. Was very torn between the BK Regal and other brands most notably the Traeger Timberline given its following and reputation. Went with the BK and was not disappointed Like others have said the quality of this grill is incomparable particularly for the price. It truly is built like a tank. Still learning all of the nuances that come with pellet grilling and the grill itself but realize that Ive got an exceptional piece of equipment here. Ive had gas grills eggs smokers kettle grills etc. but this grill is outstanding and the cooking weve done so far on it reflects the fact that it does everything as advertised. Throw in the true sear capability wi fi/bluetooth rotisserie cast-iron grill and easy-to-remove ash pot and you realize the BK is a whole new animal. And while the fact that we purchased it during the winter with negative zero temps might not be a consideration for every perspective buyer the fact that it does a great job in these seasonal elements is worth thinking about.

Great pellet grill just a few minor issues

Robert12515 1/30/2021

Did a lot research on pellet grills and decided this one was a great value and would last a long time with care. A few minor complaints 1 the instruction video on assembly has different parts shown that what comes with the grill bottom shelf is perforated while mine is solid. 2 Smoke stack is NOT THE Spin dial ONE but the daisy wheels pointless 3 the pellet dump out is a pain you cant get a bucket under it to catch the pellets because the wheels are in the way and there is not a funnel coming out to guide them away from unit the pellets dont come all out you will have to have some one pushing them out from the top or put tongs into bottom slot and stir. 4 LOVE THE GRILL COVER WELL MADE AND NICE But.... get hung up on the rotisserie in the back if you store it there. 5 MY BIGGEST ISSUES IS THE AUGUR. It sound like its about to break if I use any pellets other than Bk or lumberjack or Webber or cabelas Used a bag of Bear Mountain pellets and you would thing that it was about to break with all the groaning and grinding it made the whole cook ended up dumping them out tried pit boss and same issues. Tried treager pellets and same issues. WHY I had a camp chef and no issues ? These are high quality pellets 100 hardwood and much more available in my area. Overall I would say a 4 star rating have had for about a month. Website and app both need updated and more user friendly. Would be nice to have a video on calibration for the app and probes not sure Im getting a accurate reading.

CanadianSmoker 1/19/2021

Had for almost 2 years. No issues even in cold cold cold weather. Once I got used to the pellet cooking style and used to how pellet grills work this is great. Cooking on a fire is definitely different than cooking on gas bit of a learning curve. We now smoke a lot of foods and have the best grilled steaks we have ever had Strongly suggest.

Simply Amazing

KrisTheRock 9/3/2020

On the expensive side but completely worth every penny. Easy to assemble and even simpler to use. Built like a tank it feels like itll last 10 years or more. You set the temparature like an oven so you get perfect results every time. My favorite feature so far is the fact that you can monitor the internal temp from a distance. If you work from home you can start a slow smoked cook at your lunch break and set alarms based on internal temp. You can go work and itll let you know when you need to do something. Ive had amazing results for both slow smoking and hoter quick cooks like burgers and steaks. I have yet to try the rotissery though.

Ive had my regal 500 pellet grill/smoker for a little over a month now. I was sceptical at first but once I tried it out there is no other way to cook. Im never going back to propane or charcoal ever again. Got to love the construction and materials used in the grill best quality out of all the pellet smokers and a reasonable price. awesome product and I highly recommend broil king.

Regal pellet 500

Moore532 8/29/2020

Have had the grill for 2 months now maybe. Really enjoying cooking on the grill. App on the phone is nice for when your away from the grill. Very easy to use overall. The handle/shelf broke at the welds the first time I tried to move the grill which is why I gave it 4 stars. Although they sent a new one out rather quickly with no push back when I called. The display flickers once in a while. Not sure if that is going to become an issue in the future but it doesnt bother me to much. I would recommend this smoker all day long. Really enjoying it

Great Grill well constructed North American Made

MichaelH 8/20/2020

I found the grill to be one of the best made grills that can keep the temperature set even when the weather gets cold. It has a very thick metal lid and case the cast iron grates are easy to care for as long as you season them regularly. I have cooked Pizza Salmon Burgers Steaks Chicken and Pork Chops. All came out wonderful and never burned or overcooked. The temperature probes are very handy and provide you an added bonus. I have not used the rotisserie yet I settled on just removing the top rack and doing Beer Can Chicken using a Ceramic stand.

Great Grill - Terrible Electronics

HeidiHo 8/6/2020

We bought this smoker about six weeks ago and have such mixed feelings. The biggest feeling we have is we paid way too much for what we actually got. The app is terrible. I called support for help with it almost three weeks ago. No one there can help so they say someone is going to call you. No one ever did. I finally broke out a very expensive thermometer I use for roasts etc in the oven and its always within 1-2 degrees of what the oven says its at. The difference between the actual ambient temperature in the smoker was to what the smoker said it was at was between 35-65 degrees. I called support again and they will be sending me out replacement parts ... once they are in stock again. We paid way too much for a grill that needs constant supervision to maintain a proper temperature and to have to do maintenance six weeks into owning to it. My father bought a different smoker for less than half the price a couple of years ago and has never had to do anything to make it work perfectly but it doesnt have a fancy app either.I should have listened to Dad to save a lot of money and a lot of frustration.

Silas 8/1/2020

The material used to construct this behemoth couldnt be better. I am 75 years old and I had this unit put together in 1 1/2 hours. The hardest part of the build was flipping it up on the wheels by myself. I have smoked chicken pork Turkey and a slab of salmon all of them were delicious especially the salmon. I grilled a 4 lbs. Porterhouse at 600 degrees to a perfect medium rare in 18 minutes. The grill heats up quickly and holds the set temp. very well. I love this grill and if you are contemplating a purchase buy this.

Met or exceeded all of my expectations

Happy Butcher 7/22/2020

I bought this in early May 2020. Through research of pellet grills had decided that Broil King had the features I wanted at the price I wanted to pay. I specifically liked the sturdy build and the thick gauge construction. I have found everything works great. The temperature control is accurate and consistent the phone app works just fine the electronic controls are intuitive and easy to use. The grill is super easy to keep clean and the grease and ash clean-outs are easily accessible. The rotisserie works great. I also bought the cover - its functional and looks good All in all I am very pleased with my purchase. The pellet grill and my Regal 590 gas grill purchased in 2016 combine to cover off all my outdoor cooking needs. Thanks Broil King.

Monster Machine

Mike in TN 7/20/2020

Everything works wonderfully. Even temps and smokes rotisserie is a nice touch the grilling sear has been perfect burgers come out amazing have not had one jam or issue with this auger so far and Ive gone through about 100lbs of pellets. App works great. Solid thick metal that keeps in the heat. I monitored the temp of an 8lb pig shoulder for 16 hours or so and it was consistent on the smoker temp and the pig meat hit 200 and melted in my gloves. I bought one half the price from some guy named Joe in Oklahoma and frankly it was junk constant auger jams igniter issues and worse. My Regal Pellet 500 just works. As it should be.

I bought this smoker about 4 months ago. I cooked burgers on it twice and smoked a roast and after that I couldnt get it to heat up. I called and they sent me a new hot rod I put it in and nothing it would not get hot just kept putting pellets in I called and they sent me a new control panel and temperature sensor still nothing. I called again someone told me I was using the wrong pellets even though I tried telling them it wouldnt even light Im sure that had nothing to do with the pellets. I bought new pellets nothing. Called again and am currently waiting for another hot rod. All they will do is replace parts which would be great if it would work. I asked the last person I spoke with about trying to trace the voltage and they knew nothing Im ready to take it to the dump.

Great Pellet Grill

Carlos R 7/16/2020

I bought my Regal 500 pellet grill about a month ago. I have since grilled New York strips bone in rib steaks baby back ribs and hamburgers the cook was spot on and the flavor was amazing. I will never go back to gas or charcoal.

Horrible temperature cant trust it.

tsoupy99 7/15/2020

Would not recommend. Very frustrating. Cooks way to high. You can hear it feeding pellets even when its 60 degrees too high. Had a pork tenderloin on and after an hour and a half looked and it was cooking around 300 not 225 it was set at. Trying to solve this problem. Spent almost $2000 after taxes and really kicking myself now. Hopefully broil king will help.

Very disappointed with this smoker

TG$UY 7/11/2020

I purchased this smoker because I had heard such good things about it especially about how well it held its temperature. It turns out the exact opposite is true. It does not seem to matter how many times I set the temperature at 280F the temperature drops down drastically. Also there seems to be very little smoke.

Close but not quite there yet

Big Cat Que 7/10/2020

Over the past 20 years I have had 17 different smokers horizon stick burners G eggs Weber Summit charcoal BK Keg etc. between my home and lake properties. This was the 3rd pellet grill Ive bought now first two were GMG models. I bought the BK regal 500 because of the cooking size and the heavy lid for extra insulation and smoke leakage protection. The assemble was easy and the product is definitly built with quality. I normally cook over full wood and charcoal but at the cottage nothing is more convenient then a set it and forget it smoker. I could not have been more excited about this pellet smoker but it has some issues. It takes very long to get to smoking temp. - almost 30 minutes before it settled into a zone twice as long as my old GMG Bowie the second thing is the heat distribution. It was wierd because the coolest part of the grill was right above the firebox. The left and right sides are actually hotter with no water pan For the good once you learn the hot and cool spots you can really cook well on this product. The ash removal system double food temp probes reversible cast iron grills....all great features. In the first 7 days I did a full packer brisket prime reverse sear tomahawk 605 for the final sear chicken on the rotisserie pork shoulder pulled pork etc. PICS ATTACHED...every thing turned out amazing for a pellet smoker. I actually think most pellet grills are never great because of the heat retention and lack of smoke depth but the average person could do a really great job with a little practice....Dont follow BKs rib temps though...bad. This is one of the best pellet smokers in this price range for sure but it still needs some tweaking. If you have never had a pellet smoker before this is a great unit to start with

controller problems

etattersall 5/31/2020

I bought the Broil King pellet grill a year ago. Since the beginning I had controller problems and it had to be replaced 3 times. The last time was in the late fall last year when Broil King finally sent me one. I had it installed and turned it on. After about an hour it seemed to settle in to the temperature I set. So I shut it off and stored it for the winter. This spring I started it up. The screen on the controller stayed blank for several minutes. After tapping the screen several times it finally came on. I wanted to roast a pork loin. After one hour and twenty minutes I finally gave up and turned it off and did the pork loin on my Imperial 590. I am replacing this pellet grill with a competitors product. Too bad Broil King I thought you would have a great product. I was wrong. Granted it is built like a tank but your software stinks.
