Louisiana Pellet Grill LG900 (Tested Sept 2018)

The Louisiana Grill LG 900 is your classic barrel-shaped pellet grill. It is just like the heavy duty BBQ of past years but outperforms some of the most expensive grills on the market.

This unit has the modern technology with ​a strong and sturdy build. We found it could smoke and grill slow and low, to give us flavors similar to our favorite smokehouses and restaurants.

What makes this even better is that this is all done with just a push of a button. When we tried it, all we had to do was load up the pellets set our desired temperature and it handled the rest. The unit regulated the temperature or maintain it for hours.

Key Features

Digital Control Center
The digital control center in this grill allows you to set the temperature between 180°F to 600°F. This is undoubtedly a superb temperature range for grilling all kinds of meats and vegetables. We used the built-in digital display for getting an accurate temperature reading each and every time.

Stong and Sturdy Construction
The grill is built with heavy duty 14 gauge steel for durability and strength. The core material here is stainless steel upon which has been powder coated. This grill should last years with the correct maintenance

Searing Option
The Louisiana Grill gives you the opportunity to sear and then grill your meat, which allows you to smoke your food to perfection.

Spacious Cooking Area
With a spacious cooking space, we didn’t have to worry about cooking for a crowd. The cooking surface measuring 913 square inches, 633 square inches main and 280 square inches upper.

Spacious Hopper with Option to Extend
We have found that the size of the hopper can affect the set and forget feature. Some smokers need to be refilled multiple times thought a cook which can defeat the whole feature. The Louisiana Grill LG 900 has a 14 lbs. pellet hopper that can fuel up to 8 hours of cooking

Accurate Temp Reading With Meat Probe
After testing the accuracy of the smoker, we also tested the meat probe. We found it was completely accurate with + - 1 degree.

Porcelain-Coated Cast Iron Cooking Grate
The grates are made of high-quality porcelain coated cast iron. Having porcelain coated grates not only makes it more durable but means the grill was much easier to clean.

Cold Smoke Cabinet
You are also able to cold smoke with the Louisiana LG 900. This has an enormous space for cold smoking as well as for warming. It is perfectly positioned on the right side of the unit.

To light this bad girl up, all you need to do is fill the hopper with the pellets, plug your smoker into 110V outlet, push the start button and it is all set. It only took us about 5 minutes to obtain a smoky fire.

Cleaning and Maintenance 

Cleaning and maintenance the Louisiana pellet grill is simple. You will find the upper cooking grid is removable. You can put this in the dishwasher with non-caustic cleanser. Being able to remove this rack makes cleaning the inside a breeze. We recommend you just do it after each cook and it will take you no longer than 10 minutes each time.

Removal of the ash after cooking is quite easy all you need do it is empty the drawer and swept it. Unlike most unit uses fewer pellets due to the convection heat feature. We also found that we only every 2 – 3 uses.

You will more often than not find me tinkering around in my backyard. I will have one hand tightly gripped around a can of beer and the other hand tightly gripped around my spatula. Not so long ago (almost 8 years now) I got obsessed with Grilling, smoking and BBQ-ing. I can't get enough of it.. and neither can my family!
