It's been a LONG time since I've posted here. I've been smoking meats still... just not enough time to read the forum and post stuff!
I wanna get a new smoker for reasons below, and I'm looking at the Traeger Texas (BBQ075) at Costco Roadshows for $799.
Does anybody have an idea of how DURABLE these are, and if they'll last me a while? $799 is a lot of money to invest, and I wanna make sure it lasts a long time.
I currently have a used WSM 18.5" and a GOSM. Absolutely LOVE the WSM, but it doesn't quite fit as much food as I'd like.
I would like something with more room because I'm considering cooking for much larger parties, and catering for fun (just family and friends for now).
I also want something EASY to use because I have two kids now and can't babysit a smoker, and would like to keep any setup/cleanup to a minimum.
So my options are either a new WSM 22, a second WSM 18.5, or the Traeger.
What do you guys think?
