Pros: I've smoked burgers, meatloaf, chicken and ribs on it and everythings been great. Has held heat well so far. Got a good price at Costco.
Cons: Retail price is a little high and I probably wouldn't have purchased if I hadn't found it at Costco.
I was kind of thinking of replacing my 30 inch electric smoker and getting one with a little more capacity. I stopped at Costco to get gas and the attendant was telling me about the Traeger grills being displayed in the store. I went in and talked with the rep and decided to get the Lil Texas. I've had it a couple months and really like it so far. Everything I've cooked on it has been great. It is very easy to clean and seems pretty solid. The pellets are hard to find locally so I've ordered off the Traeger website. In looking around the internet, it seems some Traeger owners use other brand pellets. I've been satisfied so far so will continue to use them unless I can find something better at a lower cost. I would definitely recommend the product.
