So my mom wants to buy me a new pellet smoker for an early birthday present but I want to keep it under $500 I work at home depot and they have a nice traeger tailgate elite there for $449 so that falls under what im looking for. Is there something better I could get for around the same price? My MES30 w/AMZNPS is nice but im addicted now want to upgrade. I only cook for my family, max is 2 pork butts at a time or 3 tri tips and what not. I live in an apartment so it has to be an electric smoker and the traeger is OK to use.
