I know us pellet smokers catch crap from the bbq crowd, but it is argue with the results sometimes. I have the Texas and I really enjoy burgers and dogs on it. The fat that falls off the burgers and sizzles on the grease tray leaves a very nice flavor on the burgers that I enjoy. The digital controller really amps up the use of the Traeger. I have tried one of the more expensive and better built pellet smokers, and I went back to the Traeger. I think it does a better job on the cooking.
