Z Grills’ Blind Box Special: Pay Less, Get a Mystery Smoker Pellet Grill

You won’t know which model you own until you open the box, but Z Grills’ Blind Box Special delivers its 2021 pellet grills for up to 43% off.

If you like to gamble and have been drooling over a pellet smoker grill, have we found a deal for you. Maybe you haven’t pulled the trigger on buying because pellet grills are so damn pricey — even with summer sales.

Well, if you’re willing to throw the dice on the exact specs of your dream grill — like surface area, and side or front table — Z Grills’ 2021 Blind Box Special may be the offer you’ve been waiting for.

Pay $399 and you’ll get one of Z Grills’ five newest smoker grills that normally sell for $479 to $699.

Right off the bat, you’ll save money. But the gamble is just how much.

Z Grills’ Blind Box Special

All of the grills included in Z Grills’ Blind Box Special have a PID controller for consistent temperature and precise control, whether you’re grilling or smoking. All are made from high-quality materials, and if you want to browse what you could get in the mail, check Z Grills’ new-for-2021 Pellet Grills.

Here’s a quick rundown.

Z Grills’ Pellet Models

The offerings start with Z Grills’ Basic Series (MSRP $479). First, the BBQ Maven 550B2 has a built-in wood front shelf for prep and storage. Inside, a fan creates convection for even cooking over the entire grill surface, whether you’re smoking, baking, roasting, searing, braising, or barbecuing. The grill has all-terrain wheels designed to move it where you want it.

Next, the Smo\ke Engine 5502G is sized for family gatherings with 553 inches of cooking surface.

Two models — the 600-series Fire Beast grills (MSRP $499) — are exclusive to the Blind Box Special. The 6002B2, which Z Grills says is its most versatile, has an upgraded bottom shelf, a bottle opener, and a side shelf for hanging tools. And it comes in bronze.

Meanwhile, the heavy-gauge 6002B3 uses a high-temperature powder-coated lid for easy cleaning. And it lets you switch between indirect and direct heat up to 750 degrees F so you can truly sear a steak. This model comes in a snazzy blue color.

Finally, the Backyard Warrior pro-model 7002F2 (MSRP $699) will turn you into a pitmaster with dual temperature probes, a door to dump and swap pellet flavors, and up to 40 hours of smoking without reloading the 24-pound capacity hopper.
