I'm not educated with regard to Traeger, but a friend passed along a pamphlet offering a Model BBQ055, Junior, for $349.00, using a $50.00, "factory rebate certificate". It's a rebate. I guess you pay up front and then get the check for $50.00 from Traeger. Offer good through 2-28-09. Let me know if your intrested and I can scan, send or mail the certificate,,, if it's a cooker worth getting. I have two $50.00 certs.
