I am Diamond Jim living in Austin, TX and I have been in the Automotive Parts and Svc business for 45 years, my friends asked me all the time if I am retired and I tell them no, I am just tired! Because of some health reasons I am in semi-retirement, but have lots of customers I take care of in this area. I am a new Traeger Pellet Grill user, as of the last three weeks or so. and I love it! I have seen the pellet grills at the Home and Garden Shows for the last couple years, but never stopped to see them as I had a new CharBroil Gas Grill. My wife and I were at the Mall and just happened to walk by the Traeger Booth and in 10 minutes was a new owner of a Traeger Lil Tex Elite. So far so good! Sold my like new CharBroil to a friend in Houston. Looking forward to seeing some more interesting posts on this site. Thanks for letting me join!
