My Lovely wife bought this for me the other day. Got it put together last night and seasoned it. I am now in the process of smoking a Pork Loin Roast for pulled pork tonight!!

It is the Traeger Junior Elite Smoker. I'm using a mix of Mesquite and Hickory pellets. Seasoned the pork with some Salt, Pepper, Onion, and Garlic. I will take a picture of the finished product when it is done cooking, Enjoy!!

I'm just using a regular store bought thermometer to measure the meat temperature. I lifted the lid every couple of hours to check it. The analog temp gauge on the lid and the digital read out were about 25-30 degrees difference.

And sorry I didn't get any pics of the finished product. It got eaten way to fast by everyone!

Thanks for looking, and I'm loving the new grill ! is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
