Product Spotlight: Why You’ll Love the Grilla Grills Chimp

The Grilla Grills Chimp tailgater grill may be our most compact model, but everything about it is ready for the big time. It’s a professional-quality WiFi pellet grill and smoker that’s built tough for the road, but with all of the features you’d expect from a fully equipped backyard smoker. Plus, thanks to our new 400W power inverter, it’s one of the most portable pellet grills out there, bar none! What’s the secret that makes the Chimp the next evolution of portable smoker grills? Let’s dive into the DNA of this small but mighty member of the Grilla Grills family.

Meet the Chimp

New to pellet grills? Get up to speed on the basics here!

The Chimp is a full-fledged wood-fired pellet smoker grill that’s built with easy portability in mind. First, we took all of the most beloved parts of our full-sized Grilla Silverbac and packed them into a compact body design, including:

  • Double-walled steel construction provides superior heat retention in any weather.
  • “Set and forget” control system automatically adjusts fuel feeding for consistent temperatures without laborious fire tending.
  • Alpha Connect WiFi controller gives you full control of your grill through our Alpha Connect app.
  • Included meat probe lets you monitor internal temps from your control board or through your app.
  • Exclusive TempTamer technology minimizes temperature swings.

With all of those features secured, we added fold-up wheeled legs that make the Chimp easy to move and simple to store! The Chimp will fit great in your truck bed, trailer or however you’re getting to your destination. Plus, once you’ve arrived, it’s now easier than ever to get your Chimp powered up and smoking. 

Introducing the Chimp’s 400W Power Inverter

We’ve introduced a game-changing addition to the Chimp: a 400W power inverter that can power your Chimp anywhere! Just connect the included clips to a standard 12V battery (the kind that’s in your car or truck) and plug the Chimp into the inverter unit. Now you’ve got a high-quality 110 – 120V AC power source, just like you’d have from grid power at home.

The Chimp was already the premier portable pellet grill, but now it’s on a whole new level! Whether you’re camping, tailgating, cooking in a competition or chillin’ on the beach, your Chimp will be right there, with no need for a power outlet or generator.

Who Will Love the Chimp Most?

  • Road Warriors: If you’re hitting the road to cook at BBQ competitions or smoking up big batches of wings at your favorite team’s tailgates, the Chimp was pretty much made for your needs — especially now that it’s so easy to power anywhere.
  • Space Maximizers: Got a small patio or backyard? The Chimp is the perfect compact grill for you! Its small footprint makes it easy to fit into almost any space, and you’ll still have an amazing 460 square inches of cooking area at your disposal. 
  • Beginner Pitmasters: Need a beginner-friendly pellet grill that cooks like a pro? The Chimp is an ideal way to get started! It’s compact and affordable, but its competition-quality design sets it apart from entry level pellet grills that you’ll outgrow after a year or two. 
  • Off-Grid Chefs: Who needs the power grid, anyway? If you want the ability to smoke up a delicious rack of ribs whether or not you have working electricity, the Chimp will give you exactly that! It’s great for homesteads, hunting cabins and anywhere else that self-reliance is a must.

Accessorize Your Chimp

We also offer tons of cool accessories that you can use to customize your Chimp just how you want it! A few of our favorites are:

  • Jerky Rack: Enjoy almost 400 inches of extra cooking space for your Chimp with this two-tiered expansion rack!
  • Pimp My Chimp Kit: Add a bolt-on vent panel and cord hanger to your Chimp, all made from 304 stainless steel. 
  • Front Shelf: Attach this convenient front shelf to your Chimp for an easy place to prep food, store grilling accessories and more.
  • Grill Cover: Keep your grill protected in any weather with a heavy-duty polyester grill cover made specifically for the Chimp.
