Well, the grill works great. At least with a 3000w inverter.

Steak on the grill and baked potatoes in the microwave.

Looks delicious! Glad you're able to make some great food with it. How easy is it to clean the filter? And is it doing a good job with being smokeless? Oh. And does it get too hot for inside the cab/sleeper?

Amazon has it for $150 right now and I want to buy it. But don't want to spend $300-$400 for a good 3k watt inverter.

I e only used it twice but the filter is fine. Mostly just grease on the grill and the pot it sits in. Wipe it out with paper towels. I am home weekly for the most part, so I’ll toss it in the dishwasher.

OTR guys will probably need to take it for a shower occasionally. Downside is it takes a few paper towels, and you have to get rid of them due to the old grease smell.

Truck smells a little like a restaurant but not horribly.

It smoked very slightly, and it will heat up the cab. I have it set up on my cooler in front of the passenger window (no passenger seat) and leave both windows open so the smoke so far has gone right out. I only noticed the smoke with the burgers.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

TWIC:

Transportation Worker Identification Credential

Truck drivers who regularly pick up from or deliver to the shipping ports will often be required to carry a TWIC card.

Your TWIC is a tamper-resistant biometric card which acts as both your identification in secure areas, as well as an indicator of you having passed the necessary security clearance. TWIC cards are valid for five years. The issuance of TWIC cards is overseen by the Transportation Security Administration and the Department of Homeland Security.

Hey Drew

I went to Walmart to get it but then I saw the size of it. It takes up half my sleeper floor. Well not really but sure does take up a lot of room. Just my two cents.

Yeah it isn’t small. It pretty much covers the top of my cooler. Not having a passenger seat is nice.

Ninja Foodi smokeless indoor grill

Also, works as an air fryer, food dehydrator, griddle, roaster and to bake things. 1760 watts, 120 volts.

This thing may get me to cook more often.

Here's a link for a review. Amazon sells it too.

Smokeless grill review

Does it use water to filter the smoke?

Won't work when moving... maybe when parked. Not sure but I heard they don't work as well as advertised. I would be skeptical at best.

No the filter is basically a grease filter like you would see in a range hood. And no I would not use it while moving. I suppose you could cook soup or something like that while moving, but it isn’t a slow cooker, so you would need to check it every so often. It’s real value is as a grill, griddle, air fryer, etc.

Mine works great. Steak took about 10 to 15 minutes, and could have been less. It cooked a lot more while resting than I expected. But with a passenger seat it would not be easy in the cab. I suppose you could do it in front of the bunk, but I’m not sure how smoky it would get that far back.
