I get the pellet itch from time to time and lowes/walmart never clearance anything.

I’m sorry, I just don’t know. The only pellet cooker I’ve used is my own. Several friends have had the bigger Pitboss-Traegers-GMG etc
They all like them. At least I’ve never heard them complain.

It does seem when you see small pellet cookers ranked, GMG-DC is pretty well thought of.

The general thought is to buy the biggest cooker with the most real estate you think you’ll need-then go one size bigger.

I did a 180 with that process.

I love to cook. I love to cook often. I was/am tiring of leftovers. So now I cook a small shoulder-a single rack of ribs etc. My Primo Oval XL can handle bigger cooks. It’s great for double smoking or reheat of a meal. Today’s cook was an 8# Boston Butt and I used the Primo due to severe weather being forecast.

There are moving parts electrical parts- things can happen. So far they haven’t.

Compared to my Memphis and yoder, My DC is ridiculously loud when the auger is turning...loud enough I contacted them and they sent me a new auger motor assembly (haven’t installed yet).

I’m thinking expectation should be tempered by cost. Again, it’s not the perfect cooker for every situation. I wouldn’t want it to be my only cooker. It’s small. But at $339 delivered it fills a spot quite nicely in our lives. The warranty is two years. I promise I will my moneys worth.

I picked up a Camp Chef SmokePro SE last year from Walmart for $180.00 on clearance after labor day (I bet there are still some pellet smokers on clearance right now). Regular price was $344. I used the Walmart App and checked the price at stores all around me. I had to go across town to find one at that price.

I would look at the price on the app for the Pellet smoker you want, and look for it at several stores, only for in stock items. The web price does not go down.
