I REALLY like my Traeger grill and it is super simple to cook wonderful food. My only suggestion is that you must watch the hopper periodically to make sure that the pellets are flowing smoothly through the auger and into the fire box.

I cooked a chicken a while back and as the pellets dropped in the auger chute, the friction of the pellets themselves created a hole and the pellets quit dropping in the auger. Since the grill basically looks after itself when cooking I really didn't stand by it to watch the cooking process. "Set it and forget it" is the appropriate term. My guests arrived around the time the chicken was supposed to be finished, but the chicken wasn't even close to being finished.

I absolutely LOVE the grill but I thought that I would share an important lesson that I learned. Look at the pellet box periodically while cooking and you will get professional results even if you are like me, a backyard rookie cook!.

I love my Traeger. I feel that it was well worth the price paid. I now can cook brisket and pork shoulders for the long overnight cooks and still get a full night's sleep.

My wife says I'm cheating but she agrees that the quality of my Q'ing improved drastically as soon as I bought my Traeger.

Chicken and ribs turn out great. The only down side to me is that it really does not get hot enough for grilling steaks but I have a charcoal and a gas grill that can handle that chore.
