I use a Green Mountain Grill which is similar to a Trager. One benefit of the GMG is you can set it from 150-500 degrees in 5 degree increments. Check it out.
If you want an American product try a MAK or a Fast Eddy. Be prepared to shell out about twice as much. Remember these grills have computers in them.
I cook at least 3 times a week, more in summer, and have done so for the last year and a half.

1st off....no, I don't need a commission.....I'm just a fan of pellet grills...and Traeger was the originator that kinda got it all started. Lots of options out there now.

Green Mountain pellets are better than Traegers IMO....they burn hotter and have less ash.

And to Dave Bulla, ....I really don't even know how you could make those statements. Its like you are on another planet or something. Everyone that has eaten off my grill has RAVED about the flavor....not only I, but a friend of mine sold his green egg to buy one also. Not to mention the other's that have purchased them after eating off mine.

Did you know that folks are trying to BAN pellet grill from cooking contests???? The reason is because they claim its too easy to get the flavor with them.

Like I said earlier, I ate off of one on a hunt, and just had to own one because of the flavor of everything. I'm now looking at compact models from different manufacturers....I want one I can take with me to hunt camp.

I don't think they are trying to ban pellet grills from contests because of the flavor part, but because of the automation of it. Just fill the hopper and you are good for hours. I don't favor the BBQ Guru either, that to me also takes out the human factor for watching your fire and regulating your temp. For personal use, whatever floats your boat, but for a contest, it should be lump, hardwood, or briquetts. No propane, pellets, or electronics that control your pit.

I strictly use lump, hardwood, or briquetts when I smoke or grill. But, I know several people who have pellets cookers, and they love them, and I have tasted the food that came off of them and it was good. No complaints from me.

Exactly Al...too easy.

Being that I'm not a cooking guru...or into contests....I want my flavor to come easy...my girls want a steak, burger, chicken, fish or even pizza, broccoli, asparagus, bread etc. etc. now, off the grill....I can have it pretty stress free with the flavor of someone that had to 'work it'.

100% Terry. Whatever works for you. Sometimes when I don't want to smoke a brisket for 18 hours or so, I'll smoke it for a good 3 with hickory and when the temp drops, I'll stick it in the oven to for 4-5 hours until tender. But don't tell anyone, wink, wink. Kinda hybrid bbq, but it works in a pinch. Backyard is one thing, and comps are another.

I too jumped on the wood pellet grill. Went with the Treager Lil tex elite.

Boy oh boy is that thing awesome!!! I got so tired of messing with charcoal and couldn't bring myself to go with a propane grill. It is so easy to use and perfect for families that always have stuff going on during the week.

I picked up a Traeger early this summer and my wife loves it as much or more than I do. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE IT. But she REALLY LOVES me doing ALL the cooking!!
I can't get enough of it. I experiment with every recipe that sounds good and so far I've had no complaints from anyone.


I'm with you Terry, a smaller unit for hunting camp would be the ticket!! Let us know if you find "THE" one.

TRAEGER on!! [thumbsup]

Traeger for me. I love it. Had to experiment a little to get the temps and cooking times right, but I love the food from it.

My wife thinks that I am a slow cooking guru. I only have one regret regarding my Traeger.......should've bought it a long time ago.

I don't think you can go wrong with one.

ElkChaser, go to the Traeger website, they have a new portable called the tailgater, looks like a hunting camp dream.

Great. I just HAD to open this thread. Now I'm going to have to see if I can save the money and convince the wife that we NEED a Traeger. [dntthnk]

I got a Traeger Texas grill in 2006 and gave it to my son-in-law in 2011. Excellent food off of that grill, and it's still producing incredible food today. Reason I gave it to him? I got a MAK 2 Star General, which is totally made in Oregon. Just a great cooking/smoking pellet grill.
