New to pellet grills/smokers

Hello from Iowa. I just got back from purchasing a Green Mountain Daniel Boone grill. Not the WIFI version. Dealer and I agree it was not worth the added cost. Got it for $549 plus he threw in a 28lb bag of Texas blend pellets and a $10 pack of various rubs. I have a electric Masterbuilt 30, but was not enjoying it. I tried using a aftermarket pellet smoke generator (AMNPS), but could not get the pellets to stay lit. Also did not like our Nexgrill gas grill. So thought to solve both problems and get a pellet grill. Did not find many negative reviews, so I went for it. I'll read the instructions and get this bad boy going soon. Cheers
