Hi I have not had a smoker in a couple years. I was previously using a cheapo Brikman. I came across a Traeger Lil Tex Smoker on CL for $250 and was wondering if anyone could give me some indight on what to look at on the unit. The other units I have been considering are the Bradley Original, Webber great smokey mountain, and the MES. The traeger was a little more than I was looking to spend until I came across this one.
