I am looking to purchase a pellet smoker for a beginner. I want simple and not too expensive. I have been looking at the Traeger Junior Elite and the Green Mountain Davy Crockett. What I see is that Traeger has some issues with their smoker, mainly temperature control. It also looks like customer support is ok but not great. GM, seems to have fewer complaints and has WIFI. Customer service is by email or leave a message. I don't like that at all. I would purchase a Traeger at Costco. They are offering good prices plus they let you return it used if it turns out to be a lemon. I would have to mail order the GM and I could never return it if I wanted to.
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated.
