Traeger Pro Series... Yay or Nay???

All opinions welcomed.

Being in a wheelchair I think this type may be easier for me to use.

If I posted this in the wrong place please let me know

A lot of people use Tragers, they cook well. My son-in-law has 2. Sorta cheaply made, but work well. He's made some excellent food. He's had some controller issues, but huge Facebook following. Green Mountain is another brand in that class. For roughly double the price MAK and Yoder make excellent units. I have a MAK and live it. 2 years and no issues, just a cleaning once a month. Rock steady temp control in temp down to -5 deg F. Built like a tank.

As with anything else. You get what you pay for. I did a lot of research when I decided after cooking a brisket on a stick burner that I was too old to get up every four hours and feed the fire. Ended up with a Cookshack. Have now had it for about 4 years and it is the finest smoker I have ever had the pleasure of using. A bit on the expensive side, but if you check on their website, you won't find anywhere near the problems of some of the less expensive smokers. I am not a prisoner to buying their pellets either. Only uses about 2-4 oz. of your choice of wood chunks. They can be purchased anywhere and 3 oz. will smoke a 16 lb. brisket for as many hours as it takes. Pretty cheap to feed and produces a fabulous product. Have done briskets, ribs, chicken, pork butts, salmon, etc. Sorry I bought the Brinkman cast iron offset smoker prior to buying a Cookshack. You won't be sorry.

Coockshack's definitely way better, especially on keeping the right temp.
