Tender and Juicy Meat - Minimal airflow (thanks to electric heat) keeps meats tender and juicy. Juices literally run out when meats are cut.
Accentuates Natural Flavors - No burned-grease or other false flavors; only the natural flavors of the meat are present. Additional flavors are easy to add with seasonings or wood smoke.
Cooks to Perfection Every Time - Whether grilling or baking, the results are consistent. The digital controls allow precision grilling so you can cook to perfection. Both the grill and target meat temperatures can be independently set.
Smoke Wood Chips for Additional Flavors - A handful of dry wood chips can add a great deal of flavor. Due to minimal airflow, the chips smolder rather than burn.
No Burned-Grease Taste - Grease does not burn or smoke (which causes carcinogens), so the “traditional” burned-grease taste is not present; instead you can experience the delicate, natural meat flavors. Remember, flavors are easy to add but impossible to remove.
Automatic, Cook-by-Probe Technology – A specialized probe measures the internal temperature of meats, allowing the digital controls to monitor meat temperature. The grill automatically switches to “keep-warm” mode when the meat reaches your specified temperature.
Needs No “Babysitting” – You do not need to watch your meats, flip them, or even be home. The grill alerts you when it has finished grilling, smoking, or baking.
Easy to Use – Digital controls powered by a microcomputer provide a simple menu-driven interface. Simply enter the grill temperature and either the baking time or target meat temperature (and put the probe in the meat).
Easy to Clean – The grates fit in the sink and the drip pan lifts out for quick and easy cleanup. The interior of the grill stays clean to the touch because grease does not smoke nor condense inside.
None of the Hassles of Gas or Charcoal – No smoke, no fire, no matches, no tanks, no briquettes, no burns, no explosions.
Grill Steaks & Cookies at the Same Time – Because our grill focuses on minimal airflow and no smoke, flavor cross-contamination is eliminated; thus foods may be grilled or baked at the same time.
Dakota Grills™ started when Wally Sorenson tired of eating burnt steak. Wally and his family were very busy ranchers from Lake Preston, SD. So busy that food on the grill often became charcoal or shoe-leather from neglect. The Sorenson Mantra, "when it's smokin' it's cooking; when it's black it's done," described their meals all-too-well.
Wally and his son Adam, both electrical engineers, searched for a way to create a perfect steak every time. Disappointed by every cooking method and device they tried, Wally and Adam chose to create their own.
The challenge was to come up with a grill that could take care of itself even when no one was around. The meat had to be tender, juicy, and flavorful, even when left unattended for an hour or more..
