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.
I've never had a pellet pooper, but I would never disparage one either. I can make good Que with my kettle, I can make good que with my Cajun Bandit, I can make good Que with Redhot's Akorn and I can make good Que on my el cheapo modded GOSM. If I had a PP I'm sure I could make good Que with that too.
Question for the OP. Does that thing have an exhaust vent? Hard to tell from the pics. Nice briskie!
