The reason that I did not give a 5-star rating is the inadequate instructions on assembly, start-up instructions, and the steps that need to be followed to light the grill so that the pellets light properly and stay lit. The good news is that the customer service department is OUTSTANDING! I have called them twice; no long wait times--friendly people that know their product and how to answer your questions, and patiently step you through the questions not covered in the instructions that come with the grill. I loved it when they acknowledged the poor instructions, apologized for this deficiency, and stepped me through my questions. (BTW: They are domestically located and speak and understand US English.)
I will only use the Traeger for smoking. While it can be used as a traditional grill, it is more work than I will use for my normal grilling. (My Weber grill is still my first choice for grilling at home. However, the ability to grill with it when I use it at non-home location will be handy.) The addition of a second specialty unit for smoking and slow cooking meats is worth having the second unit if you are a serious outdoor cook.
A couple of side notes. 1. The unit is small enough to take for tailgating, camping, church and beach/lake parties. Its energy consumption is low enough that it can be hooked up to your vehicle with a converter or if you have a 110v outlet on your vehicle. This will be a handy feature this summer. 2. The add-on side tray that easily installs on the front of the unit is well worth buying; it avoids meat drippings dropping on your patio when you put meat on and take it off of the smoker.
Overall, I am extremely satisfied now that Traeger has provided me with the additional instructions not in the printed instructions that came with the grill.
I need to amend my previous comments about the Traeger Grill .... Last night, with company waiting the Traeger delivered a fantastically cooked Prime Rib .... The grill performed flawlessly for 8.5 hours on the smoke setting ..... Very, Very little ash .... to clean up .... I cooked the prime rib in a low sided steal pan with an elevated meat rack to allow for smoke circulation within the grill ..... This grill is proving to be a very nice tool to have around the house ... So far so good !
Called Traeger support (first time), they were nice enough. I told them I thought I had a bad auger motor. They told me I had done the initial burn wrong. We talked through the instructions—I didn't think I had. Regardless, I went and followed instructions again. Same result as before. I called Traeger support again (second time). They instructed me to open the hopper housing swap the wire harness on the induction fan and the auger motor and power up. Diagnosing a bad controller. Both worked fine as far as I could tell. I swapped it back and tried the initial burn in one more time. This time auger just stopped on priming the fire box and would not start again.
I called Traeger support (third time) and they offered to ship me a new controller—I'm guessing that is where they see their highest defect rates. I pointed out a few things:
a) I expect new things to work out of the box—I pointed out that if this were a car (or anything else really) this would be beyond unacceptable.
b) It was presently July 3rd and I had made meat based plans for the 4th of July, so shipping me a controller wasn't going to do me any good.
c) Despite there being a 3 year warranty, I did not want to talk to them for the next three years.
I contacted Amazon and have disassembled and boxed it up for return. Good thing I got 3 bags of different pellets to try out. Suffice it to say, my father's Traeger, purchased 10 years ago is a war horse (and why I went with Traeger). In the intervening time, it would appear that cost savings have been passed on to the buyer in the form of poor quality.
Don't worry, about my 4th. Still have my Weber 14401001 Original Kettle Premium Charcoal Grill, 22-Inch, Black that delivers every time.
