The Best Yoder Smokers Accessories

Yoder Smokers Wood-Fired Pizza Oven Accessory

Chances are, if you’re reading this you either own a Yoder Smoker, or have interest in getting one. Yoder Smokers have continued to show why they are one of the top pellet smokers in the game. With many great units like the YS640s, YS640s Competition, YS480s, Loaded Wichita, Cheyenne Offset Smoker, and more, you will need good accessories to go with them.

There are a range of accessories that fit all of these smokers needs and that is what we are here to discuss in this article.

Wood Fired Pizza Oven 

One of the most versatile grills on the market, the wood fired pizza oven accessory is perfect for outdoor cooking. Only compatible with the YS480 and YS640, the pizza oven harnesses the power of the grill’s large offset firepot and transforms the distribution of heat to be perfectly balanced from the top and bottom. Made with heavy duty steel construction and a proprietary 3/4” thick kiln-fired stone, the quality will surely be noticeable.

The pizza oven has the ability to heat up from 350°F to 900°F. Having a solid range in temperatures can allow for cooking bread and rolls at a low temperature, while still being able to really heat it up to cook pizzas like many restaurants do. This is a great accessory for turning your pellet smoker into a pizza oven. “Cooking a pizza in about three or four minutes is no joke, this oven is the real deal. The heat rolling through this thing is even from top to bottom, just does it thing with no effort, and in no time!” – Scott R.

Stainless Steel Grease Shield 

Yoder Smokers Stainless Steel Grease Shield Accessory

The whole purpose behind the Stainless Steel Grease Shield, is simply to keep grease from dripping onto the surface of your Yoder Smoker. This shield does a great job of catching the drippings and preventing them from landing on your grill or even deck/patio.

This makes clean-up and maintenance feel like a breeze. Fixed on the back side of the shield is a high temperature Nomex material which reduces metal to metal contact. A removable rubber plug will hold these materials in the shield until you’re ready to remove it and clean it out. Simple, attractive, and effective! The Stainless Steel Grease Shield accessory is compatible with the YS480 and YS640.


If you love your pellet smoker but miss the days of searing the perfect steak, GrillGrates for Yoder Smokers are the perfect solution. Reversible, hard anodized aluminum GrillGrates trap and radiate heat, sizzling up the rails for steakhouse level searing.

If you’re looking to get more out of your Yoder Smoker – particularly more moisture, more flavor and more professional grade sear marks – you need a set of GrillGrates. GrillGrates partially replace the existing cooking surface on your Yoder Smoker for all of the flavor and none of the compromise. It’s truly the best of both worlds!

Thermal Jacket

Freezing temperatures, wind, sleet, or snow are not an issue with the Yoder Smokers insulating thermal jacket, creating true efficiency during those colder winter months.

Each jacket is designed with five-layer thermal construction to prevent heat loss that occurs as the temperature outside begins to drop, and therefore reducing pellet usage. Insulating the body of the cooking chamber, the thermal jacket is ideal for smoking temperatures of 300°F and below. We recommend removing the three-piece thermal jacket for those cooks above 300°F, as it was specifically designed for smoking temperature ranges.
