    [​IMG] Welcome to the Forum and Happy Smoke Rings from Sedalia, MO. The Traeger dealer here is a good guy and is selling several of them. You have to have electricity to use it. The Traeger pellet grills do a great job and are pretty consistent. I couldn't afford to buy the pellets all the time so I bought a Silver Smoker to start out with and use the chunk charcoal from WalMart now. I use my shredded computer paper to start the fires in a chimmney. The main thing is to have fun and enjoy yourself and have good eats, Isn't it?? Do the fatties and ABTs besides anything else and you will enjoy. Read the threads and learn to be better, because it tastes better?? I couldn't imagine smoking Snicker apples, hard-boiled eggs, biscuits, or baked beans a few weeks ago. Now I can't imagine not smoking something each week at the least. Smoked Onions make my mouth water and I'm getting ready for deer season to do the special Polish snack sticks. If I didn't like cleaning up a lot; I'd get a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker from Sam's Club; and I probably will this fall. I do like sitting under the shade trees and sipping iced tea while waiting on the temperature readout to raise. Semper Fi from Sedalia, MO.
