Got a z grill pellet grill on a Prime day deal almost 2 months ago. I don't use it a lot, but everything had came out great. So much easier than charcoal. I just wish it had more of a smoky flavor. Tater tots and fries come out so much better than in the oven.
Did a lot more smoking this fall and thru the holidays. New lady is very "appreciative" when I cook. Did everything from pizzas/brisket for a bday party, a turkey and stuffing for thanksgiving, and a 13lb standing prime rib and balsamic and bacon brussel sprouts for NYE. Everything turned out great, which I attribute to the ease of a traeger smoker and my ability to read a recipe. I will take a small amount of credit for correctly cutting the rib plate off the prime rib (assist to YouTube) without ruining it, which is no small task with a $200 hunk of meat. That was done in order to rub a mustard blend and stuff it with fresh herbs, before tying the rib plate back on before cooking.
