    Hello! I'm a relative newcomer to smoking, but have been grilling, spicing and saucing for years. Stumbled on this site while researching pellet cookers to replace my small traeger. Good to be on and a fantastic site!

    honcho55, Welcome to the Pit! Just be Patient, a number of your Texas Brethern will be chiming in directly. I have never used a Pellet Smoker so I won't blow smoke at you! 👍👍👍👍👍. From Fargo ND, Dan

Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

                          Welcome honcho55 , recipes and pictures would be appreciated. Am interested to see how You like the pellet grill. There was a Traeger on display at a store I shopped at earlier this week.

                            I love the traeger! I had the Lil Texas, but found I needed more space! My fiancé got a great deal on the Texas Elite at a national warehouse club during the Traeger Road Show. I will fire that one up today hopefully to start breaking her in for thanksgiving.
