Default New traeger...love craigslist!

I picked this up $200. It has been stored outside and not used a lot so the inside is rusted and not really seasoned but the metal is still good and everything works. Will want to update the controller someday. This is my first pellet grill. have had several propane vertical smokes which i have had a lot of luck w/ but i have 3 young kids so I hope this will allow me not to have to babysit my grill as often.

I also had a thought. For more smoke flavor how about putting a chip box on top of the heat deflector plate and under the drip tray. this should add alot more smoke flavor.. I will have to try it.

The local dealer has had one of those in his showroom marked down to what he calls ˝ price ($1200) for over 2 years I told him I'd take it off his hands for $500 & he won't let it go. I paid $1100 for 2 070's & a 075
when the last local dealer went out of business so I'll just wait, don't really need it. Great score, you'll love it.

I'm curious, why would you want to add more smoke wood to a pellet smoker? Great deal for 2 hundred!

I'm sure you won't be disappointed.
Smoke box on the heat deflector may not get hot enough to ignite the chips/pellets. A few have mentioned that they had to put some bricks next to the firepot to raise the smoke box and have the smoke box sit on the edge of the firepot.

Yea, me too. I though you can buy different flavor pellets.

Wow what a great price. On the Traegers, the lower the cooking temp the more smoke flavor you'll get. You'll want the digital controller if it didn't come with one.

Looks very similar to the one BeerGuy has. Does it just have a slot in the back to vent the smoke? He taped off part of that slot to keep a little more smoke and heat in. Works great.
