    I'm speaking grill. Thinking about getting a Traeger. Anyone have one or used one? Oh and Women who grill, your opinions are also welcomed.

    It's a good smoker. I don't know about grilling. Does it get hot enough to grill? I grill with a weber and have a cheapo offset for bbq.

    It's labeled as a grill so I assume it plays double duty.

    I use a Weber Kettle now. It's a silver. I'm one of those assholes that want to try something new every couple of years. I'm wondering how these pellets work or if it's some marketing shit to make you over pay for wood.

    I haven't tried the pellets yet. Would they be good for grilling or are they more for smoking?

    Have no idea. I think they just drop in to the smoke box but I've never seen one of these in person. They seem to be making the rounds at Costco but not ours. :mad:

    So it appears that it isnt a smoke box but a pellet hopper which pushes the pellets to a fire box under which gives you the ability to grill.

    Not sure it's a good idea to commit that heavily to a single supplier of fuel.

    Yeah, that worries me. It looks like there are other manufacturers of pellets but yes the point is taken.
