I bought a Traeger Lil Tex (or Colt 45 as it was called then) about ten years ago and never looked back.
I've used it mostly for grilling, but then one Thanksgiving I bought the pellet hopper extension and smoked a turkey. It was delicious, but tasted like ham! I really wanted the taste of smoked turkey, not ham!
Recently I've smoked some pulled pork and my first brisket, and they turned out great.
I'm looking forward to learning a lot here!
