Pros: Good job smoking.

Cons: Very poor paint job inside and out. Rusts quickly.

Our three year old Traeger developed huge rust spots inside and out despite careful maintenance. It was always covered when not in use and stored inside for the winter. Paint peeled in big sheets and rust formed inside and out, apparently the result of a bad paint job during Chinese manufacture. Asked Traeger to replace the out of warranty firebox as it was obviously poorly made and they refused. Moral: don't trust Traeger.


well there 's your dinner up your $ and buy something made in the U. S. A. it might be more expensive but those old boys down south make great stuff..zeke
I wish I could post this review in huge letters at every Costco.Everytime I walk by those guys they ask me if I have a smoker....I say yes and it's thick metal made in the USA. They said have a good day sir!!! My way of saying my stuff beats your shit.
