Z Grills BBQ Legend 1000D4E Features

Let’s take a closer look at some of the Z Grills BBQ Legend’s most exciting features.

Bluetooth & WiFi

This wood pellet grill and smoker utilizes an LCD touchscreen PID temperature control, but makes it Bluetooth and WiFi enabled. This means you can monitor your food’s temperature as it cooks. All you have to do is download the Z Grills app (Apple App Store, Android Google Play) and connect it.

28 lb. Hopper

This Z Grill includes a huge 28 lb. hopper. The hopper has an easy cleanout feature, pellet view, ash tray, and has a self-feed pellet system.

The self-feed system eliminates the need to refill the pellet grill. This is especially helpful while smoking, which can take hours. The cleanout system allows you to easily empty out unused pellets to save for next time, or easily switch to a new flavor of pellets.

8-in-1 Cooking System

The Z Grills BBQ Legend 1000D4E allows you to smoke, sear, bake, barbecue, grill, braise, roast, and char-grill your food. You get the versatility of full kitchen in one outdoor appliance.

Quality Construction

As mentioned earlier, the Z Grills BBQ Legend is made of insulated stainless steel to help manage temperature for consistent cooking results. It’s also made from thicker metal that will hold up better overtime compared to other, typically cheaper grills that cut costs with thinner materials.

Value of Z Grills BBQ Legend Pellet Grill & Smoker

Z Grills provides grills and smokers that are made with high-quality materials, and integrate modern technology in innovative ways. They are designed to last years and come with a “robust” 3-Year Warranty as well as a 30 Day Return Policy.

Their variety of pellet grills and smokers range in price anywhere from $300-$1,500. This gives consumers some flexibility with price points and selection, but Z Grills are a quality investment for your outdoor kitchen. Still, Z Grills are not the most expensive option on the market. This is largely because Z Grills sells directly to consumers (with free shipping), cutting out the middleman and retailer fees which saves customers money in the end.

In addition to direct sale savings, Z Grills often offers great deals and promotions on their products. In 2023 they even offered a FREE Z Grill 7-year Rebate program. Right now you can save $170 on the Z Grills BBQ Legend Pellet Grill & Smoker through Father’s Day.

Final Review

We’ve only scratched the surface of all we can do with the Z Grills BBQ Legend Pellet Grill & Smoker. We have an exciting summer ahead full of grilling and smoking that we intend to share with you. However, if your home grill is in need of replacing you may not be as excited as us.

The BBQ Legend wood pellet grill & smoker is a great option for those looking to buy a new grill. It’s fun and easy to use so that both beginners and pros will excell in their grilling results. And with an 8-in-1 cooking system you get a boundless variety of cooking options.
