Love my new 700E XL
After a lot of research i decided to go with the Z grille smoker and am so pleased. Its so easy to use and the results speak for itself. I cooked my best brisket ever on my second cook using the z grille. My familly and friends were wrapped in the result. So easy to use and clean. The best investment i have made for cooking.
Customer service at its best
From my initial questions to finalising my purchase the customer service from Mick was outstanding. All my questions were answered in detail giving me confidence with my purchase. Then I was extremely impressed with the quality of the unit and how its was packaged. Customer service at its best. Well done Z Grills team.
Spent a fair amount of time researching smokers, eventually decided after much research to buy a ZGrill, going in with high expectations, they were still exceeded, the service from Mick, the assembly instructions, the Facebook support for cooking, all exceptional. Highly recommend.
Awesome grill. So easy to use and very good quality
I put the grill together and started smoking straight away. Awesome product and very easy to use. Pulled pork and beef brisket were first on the list.. mmmm
Z grill 7002b
After many months of research i decided I wanted a pellet smoker but which one was the question
I looked at pit bosses, GMG's and tragers and then was pointed towards z grills Australia for their exceptional value and customer service.
I had a look at their offers and decided to send them a message with some queries I had about their grills, within 5 minutes I received a phone call from Mick.
This man had exceptional product knowledge and was able to answer all questions I had, he gave me an exceptional deal on my grill and accessories that I couldn't say no to.
One week later my grill arrived and the only issue I had is I didn't buy one years ago, incredibly easy to use and the build quality is awesome.
Absolutely fantastic service and quality
Mick has been amazing throughout the whole process and I couldn’t be happier and more impressed. I’m so glad I decided on the z grills 700exl over the gmg prime. Or the Traeger because not just the quality of the unit but the quality of the service.
Very happy with my purchase
Great unit (700xl) for the price point. Great after sales support. Assembly was easy, I have cooked beef and chicken so far and am very very happy with the results. With the money saved I was able to buy accessories and still have money left over compared to other brands.
Z grills for the WIN
What a great smoker. Holds temp great, heaps of room with that huge lower shelf and big top shelf let’s you cook heaps of food with good even temps across the pit. A great affordable smoker that is economical to run.
So easy to use and the results are amazing
First pellet smoker I've used and it couldn't easier. Pretty straight forward assembly with 2 people. The after sales support has been fantastic and I would recommend a Z if you're looking to get into pellet smoking. The first couple of cooks I've done have netted amazing results. Lovely smoke and natural wood fired flavours.
Great product, easy to use
Great product, easy to use and mick was really good to deal with, always on hand if your stuck, couldn’t ask for a better product and person to deliver it
Great product, perfect
Great product, great service, Michael was an absolute pleasure to deal with made the whole experience worthwhile. I'm so happy I chose the z grill after waiting 18months to make a purchase.
Good grill with lots of room and easy to use and aesthetically beautiful but requires significant time for cleaning and maintenance
Real flavour, at home
As a bloke who has a good amount of experience with a Weber charcoal kettle grill, this was quite a change but a pleasant one at that. The smoker is extremely easy to use, manages itself while you focus on the cooking side. Yes, this takes time, but with time comes great results.
Importantly, these need attention from time to time with cleaning. You need to ensure that you vacuum the fire pit regularly, ensure the grates are cleaned and from time to time, wipe out the inner barrel. I do most of it with the pressure washer in the courtyard at ...my place to make things much easier and so long as it's tended to often enough, it's pretty easy. In all, a great bit of kit, with a good support team behind the product to ensure things are working as they should, every time. Both pre and post sales customer service is exemplary on all levels. In the end, a product I can't fault and it has enhanced everything about food around my home. I have friends over for brisket and pulled pork, cook up tomahawks for the family, and make great weeknight roast chickens, sausages, steaks, you name it. This thing is so good that I even bought a chest freezer to keep in my garage that is loaded with meat for cook ups on the weekend. I no longer dine at expensive BBQ restaurants as I've learned (over time) what to do and what not to do when it comes to creating genuine smokey BBQ flavour at home. It takes time to get it right and sometimes a brisket or pork butt might have a mind of its own, but it's all part of the challenge.
100% Amazing Product - 100% Awesome Service - Highly Recommended!
Mick & Justin simply are amazing! They provide awesome customer service - pre and post sale. As I am local, they delivered the Z Grill in person, assembled it for me and took the time to walk me through a brief intro on how best to use it. Mick & Justin are so passionate about Z Grills. The Z Grill does what it says - Wood Fire Flavour... Made Easy. It doesn't matter what you cook - Pizza's, Steak, Slow Cooked Lamb - it makes cooking fun - and with ease. Cleaning up is also made simple. I highly recommend Z Grills to anyone looking for a wood pellet smoker - or a replacement for their old BBQ.
Great bit of kit
After doing research I ordered a Z Grill 700E - XL. I have had a bullet style smoker for a couple of years and although I enjoy using it, I wanted something simpler to use. I considered spending more money on a Pellet Smoker but I just don't use it enough to warrant the extra spend. So the Z Grill arrived and the first thing that impressed me was Mick's customer service - he delivered it himself as I am local. Upon assembly I was really impressed with the look, feel and quality of all the components. I added the foldable table and it fit really well and is super handy... I have now cooked on the Z Grill a couple of times and I am really happy with my purchase and highly recommend this unit.
Top bloke, top product, top support - 700e-xl purchase is a no brainer!
really impressed with everything about this purchase experience. everything from initial contact with the importer, the product itself, after sales service and answering questions is A+++.
I would say that I am in the category of reasonably experienced smokers who would get the absolute most out of a smoker like this, I have been doing smoking and bbq for around 8 years now and being my 7th smoker/bbq purchase to add to the collection i did a lot of research before purchase of my first pellet smoker.
As a smoker, its really set and forget, ...the product works great. Minimal fuss, it holds temp very well after stabilising, build quality is more than adequate for the price point and most importantly after sales support is some of the best i've had from any product purchase. The local importer/distributor takes service very seriously and bends over backwards to help people. Mick is a top bloke. I am around 6 cooks in now with this, and very impressed with everything that has come off the smoker. I love being able to do mid week cooks without baby-ing a fire and having ribs on a Wednesday is a treat while working from home. only thing I will say is that as with any pellet grill, I have learnt that it's important to run good quality pellets because these will impact the smoke output and effectiveness on the grill - so dont be affraid to try a few brands to get something your happy with. The Smokin' brand that the company sells seems to pair really well with this bbq so I would recommend those - again these are sold at a really reasonable price through the company.
First pellet smoker
I've had my z grill for a week or so now and have done a couple of cooks on it. First was a bacon wrapped, cheese stuffed meatloaf and a side of veggies! And last night I did pork baby back ribs. It is easy to use and makes some super tasty food. I love it!
Customer service is excellent. I'm very excited to see what creations are possible!
Real men use pellets
My wife said if I ever smoked she would divorce me.
So I got a 700E-XL and it performed so well she decided to stay.
In all seriousness the Z Grill is extremely easy to use and clean. I haven’t stopped smoking with it, if you haven’t got one yet you are definitely missing out.
best outdoor cooking i've ever done
so easy and producing yummy tucker !!! support and follow up ,awesome ,delivered to my door !! would recommend everyone should buy one !!!! thanks mick you bloody legend!!!
Electric all the way !!
Love my new pellet cooker. So easy to use & clean & the meat is perfect every time.
The customer service is also excellent.
Brilliant- best choice bbq!
Products are awesome, customer service is exceptional and the support has been great. All equipment is made from quality materials- highly recommend!
Great product backed by top notch customer service
The whole buying process was top class.
The rep I chatted to using their website called my phone after I had made the purchase.
And while I was waiting for the grill to be delivered, I was constantly sent information that ensured I hit the ground running once it arrived.
Then the grill itself - simply amazing. Fantastic quality and has been awesome to cook with.
I recommend zgrills to anyone looking for a great quality product backed by outstanding customer service.

Terrific pellet grill and customer service
I researched pellet grills to death and was really undecided. There’s quite a few options, with different features and different price points. The thing that really tipped me towards the Z Grill was the supportive and informative online community that has built up, together with the excellent customer service from Z Grills Australia (thanks Mick!). Nothing was too much trouble, they answered all my questions and have followed up since the purchase. Their obvious passion for their product and service is first class.
In the end went with Z Gr...ills 700E-XL. It has a good number of features and is well priced. The grill was simple to put together is well built and looks great. Have cooked pork, chicken and ribs since and they have turned out great. If you’re looking for an easy to use pellet smoker with first class customer service you can’t go past the Z Grills range.
Easy to set up and easy to use.
Very happy with the product and sales support from zgrills
Zgrill is a ripper
Bought a zgrill. Shipping came a day early! Was easy to put together and burn in. Looks the part and works a treat. Mick even chucked in a cheeky extra bag of pellets! Serious win! Great product and customer service
Questions & Answers
Would the 70002b be big enough for a 6kg brisket?
Definitely yes a huge one - check out this video I did on the 700E which has the same main grill rack area.
You legend, responding on a saturday morning! Beautiful first brisket mate and it looks like i will be going ahead with the standard 700! I appreciate your help.
just curious as to how this compares to my Fornetto?...... i am looking for more cooking space but haven't been a huge fan of pellet smokers as i have a mate who has one but it smokes the heck out of the neighborhood?
Thanks for the questions mate. Not sure what your mate is doing wrong with this pellet smoker as after the initial startup release of smoke which clears after a couple of minute the smoke release is very gentle. Check this video out. https://help.zgrills.com.au/knowledge-base/z-grills-how-much-smoke/
The key advantage of a Z Grills pellet smoker over your Fornetto is easy of use - set and forget. We have stack of Z Grills owners in Australia who have an offset or other manual smoker, but the time spent managing the fire becomes a frustration - and a Z Grill solves that. Please let us know know if any further questions. Feel free to join our facebook group to see what others are doing on their Z Grill. Cheers!
Is the 700E smoker the same as Silverbac Grilla Grills?
Thanks for giving us the opportunity to clarify that. I think quite a few people have the same question in their minds.
There is no doubt that the Silverbac from Gilla Grills looks extremely similar to the Z Grills 700E Pellet Smoker. However, keep in mind that we are not the same company. As far as I can see they are not available here in Australia.
You can read more about it here https://zgrills.com.au/about-us/
If you are looking to get yourself a 700E, check out what the 700E-XL. Our 700E-XL is an upgraded version of the 700E. It has an added top rack which increases the cooking area by 25% which works out to be 0.6 sq m of effective cooking space. With the extra cooking space for a second brisket or a few more stacks of ribs, it's not hard to fall in love with it.
