We went to Costco after work today. They had one of their "road show" things. Today's was Traeger grills. This one was their feature grill (and it was cheaper than shown here): http://www.traegergrills.com/shop/grills/BBQ075It uses an auger to feed pellets to a central burn basin. So while it looks offset, it isn't. And not reverse flow either. There is a pan between the basin and the grate, so there are "no flare-ups" and the heat distributes more evenly (so he said). Set it at 225F and it will smoke slow, set it higher and it grills. Claims the pellets are cheaper than charcoal or propane for the same cooking time. Source of power would be necessary for the auger, and the auger is something else that can go wrong (IMO).Anyone have an opinion on this? Or experience? Is the WSM still better?The construction seemed kinda light-weight to me, but then so does the Weber kettles I have seen (compared to my Genesis silver C...that thing is SOLID).1poorguy
