    Another blatant rip-off by Z-Grills

    This company disgusts me, they pretty much copy everyone else’s grill design and make a corresponding rip-off model. Now it’s a disgusting SmokeFire steal, down to the unique handle design and lid trim. I thought I previously heard the manufactured Traeger for years, so seems like Traeger must have changed factories and Z-Grills moved to stealing everyone else’s hard work.

    Yup. Another Z-Gr*ll hater here. Nothing to do about it except not support them in any way shape or form.

      Speaking of hated grill manufacturers, has anyone seen an update on Traeger’s WiFi lawsuit?

        It is too bad such a great grill as Traeger went public, but they still need to protect their patents.

      Cheap imitations/copies are everywhere.
      My Husband claims the worst knock off in BBQ history is the Good One Open Range.
      I continue to tell him the company was sold so what is produced now isn't a knock off but he insists the quality took such a hit that he will always consider it a knock off.
