    From Wichita Kansas, have an L85 Treager grill.  My question, is anyone else sick of their Chinese crap Treager. All I do is work on it. 

    That piece of crap laid down on me Christmas eve and again last night.  The only thing that you can count on with a Treager is the fact that you cannot count on it.  I need a better smoker, any suggestions?

    Sorry your having issues with your smoker, I do not have a Traeger but having two buddies that have Traegers... One has an older Traeger & raves about it... The other has a newer one & has continual issues !

    Are you looking to stay with a pellet smoker ?

    Welcome Rick!

    Lots of great choices out there.  All depends on your budget and if you want to light a fire or plug it in!  

    Lots of reviews on the forum.( AMD opinions LOL)

    Use the search bar.  You'll find more info than you'll have time to read.

    You didn't say you wanted a certain style smoker so I'll suggest a WSM or a PBC. Those were the two I narrowed down during my search,I went with the WSM because it was easy to pick up locally and all the positive reviews didn't hurt!
