Traeger Grill/smoker

Recieved this as a gift from my parents.



Anyone around here use Traegers? My parents have one of the original traegers built, serial number like 00045. They were originally produced in Mt. Angel, Oregon.

For those who dont know, Traegers use food grade wood pellets (and you can get anything from apple, to oak and mesquite) pellets. It has an auger in the bottom and feeds it into the tray where it burns. Its great because you have the convinience of a gas grill (turn it on, the hopper where the pellets burn has a glow plug type device thats gets them ignited in the beggining) wait a couple minutes to warm up if your grilling, or throw your meat on there if your smoking it. Now its a hot smoke since you have burning pellets right beneath what your cooking, but you still get the great flavor and smoke ring!

This is the lil' tex version. First thing I did was smoked a brisket. That was 6 hours of smoking, and about a half hour on high.

Yup, I love these things!

My parents have a 40' coach that has the storage along the underside. My father went and did some electrical work for a local ambulance company, and they gave him an old gurny (spelling?). Anyways, he took a little tex Traeger, took the leg mounts off, and mounted it on the gurny. Now he just slides the gurny out from underneath and has his Traeger and work space to cut, etc...

It really gets a look when they take it out at the ski lodge with a tarp over it. People sure do stare!

Dont think I will own anything else than a Traeger, to versitile!

I'm gonna try to do some baby back ribs in my $50 dollar smoker from lowes (maybe that is my problem) Sunday. I might get adventurous and try brisket or something like that. I'm not giving up, this is a really cool new hobby and it doesn't involve engines or video games so my wife kind if likes it.
