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!.
