Thanks for the input, the only reason I haven't jumped on one yet is due to some of the bad reviews. People that have a problem with them really seem to have a problem with them or just bad mouth the features because they bought a cooker without said features. I just want to hear from someone that has the latest generation and get their thoughts.
As far as pellets I don't have a local source, but plan buying a ton or more at a time. I have access to a loading dock with fork truck, so technically I could buy a semi load at a time.
Life is to short for green tea and tofu; pass me another half rack and a beerů
