This is my first post and I'm just now going to enter the world of smokers. I was at my brother's house yesterday for Christmas and he smoked a pork butt on his Traeger Lil Tex Elite grill and it was the bomb. I was wondering what others think of the Traeger smokers and if this would be a good choice to start with.
I started poking around on the net today and saw that some people don't like the Traeger wood pellets and they recommended other brands. My bro uses Traeger pellets and he mixes 80% fruit wood to 20% mesquite. I thought the smoke flavor the pork butt had was really good.
So any advice on the Traeger smokers would be appreciated and if you think they are not good smokers, please speak up. I want to buy something that is high quality and will last. I do like the gravity feed of the Traeger and not having to worry about your fire going out unless you let the hopper run dry.
