I have had a Traeger grill for about three years now. My dad has been using one for seven or eight years now. I am very impressed with the grill. I would not buy any other grill out on the market. The grill does work of an auger that feeds the pellets into a fire box. The standard grill has a thermaostat with tree settings, smoke, medium and high. You can purchase a different themostat that you can dial in the temperature.
Traeger has numerous pellets to choose from. The pellets I commonly use are mesquite, maple, hickory, oak and cherry. They have a few more types of pellets however I have not tried them.
The one down fall to them is power is needed to run the grill. This problm can be solved with a convertor and car battery.
They have numerous sizes to choose from ranging from a tailgate version to ones that you pull around with your truck. Depending on the size of grill they get they can be a bit of a bear to load up and take on a trip. However after tasting the food off of one of these superb grills, I believe that you will think it is worth the extra hassle. I know my family does.
Traeger's office is in Mt. Angel, OR and is a family owned bussines. I live not to far from the office and make frequent trips over there. The sales staff is some of the nicest people you will meet and are always willing to bend over backwards to help you out if you have any questions.
