The YS1500 has gotten dangerously close to imparting the color, flavor and texture of a wood fired pit with the ease of a pellet fired grill. The major difference between the YS1500 and other pellet grills is in the integrated heat management system (HMS). This design has a series of holes that starts small at the firebox end and steadily increase in size as they progress toward the chimney end. The HMS serves two very unique and important purposes; 1) it delivers even heat across the cooking chamber and 2) unlike other pellet grills releases smoke across the entire cooking surface rather than just at the edges of the drip pan and at the chimney. This is how the great color, texture and flavor are imparted into the meat. In addition to the HMS has a damper over the firebox. With the damper closed the pit runs evenly. To create two different temperature zones simply begin opening the damper, the more you open it the hotter the firebox end will run. This can also be used to create the perfect space for direct grilling. Finally, the HMS is easily removable for quick cleanup and to get full access to the firebox and burn grate area.
