Pros: Price, Temperature Control, Reliability
Cons: Not Weatherproof in Portland Oregon
I purchased one of the very early Traeger Lil' Tex models about 20 years ago. It was the first pellet grill I had ever seen and I fell in love instantly. Over time I added a digital thermometer to replace the "Smoke - Low - Medium - High" controllers. Then I added an expansion hopper for more pellets.
I still use it today. Temperature controls works within 10 degrees of set temperature even in pouring down rain (like today) or in November for my smoked turkey for Thanksgiving.
Over the past 20 years I have gone through 3 or 4 BMWs, 2 refrigerators in the kitchen, two RVs, and a lot of power tools. But my Traeger just keeps on going.
