Default Traeger Texas ?'s

Strangely enough my wife bought one so I'm looking for input, pro's/con's best thing cooked on them issues anything, this is the first and only pellet cooker I've ever seen.

I wish my wife would just buy me a Traeger. But then again, I already have 2 of them.

Most everything comes out really good on the Traeger. I regularly make ribs and chicken. In particular, chicken wings and whole chickens come out really good.

Don't expect it to be too good at grilling steaks and burgers. But, with some experimenting, it's tough to go wrong with most anything else.

They are good but I went with the GMG mostly because it comes standard with the extras that Treager charges for at a lower base cost

Great for Ribs and chicken, Pizzza and oysters.

Not enough smoke to do any serious smoking

Make sure to experiment with different pellets, flavor and brandnames.
