    Which brands have you personally used and how long have you owned it?

    I don't know if it was a custom rig, prototype , or commercially made unit, but a friend of a friend has a Weber Ranch Kettle with a pellet set up on it. Looked pretty slick, but I didn't have a chance to taste the food.

    How much do you want to spend? There are several "levels" of them, like most things.

    You got stock in Traeger or something?
    They're not bad rigs but they're pretty much the entry point into pellet smokers---what is it you find so great about them?

    I have one of the older made in USA Traegers...probably fifteen years old. Finally had to replace the firebox...about $30 and a few minutes time. My brother has a pellet grill called a Memphis and really likes it...higher end than Traeger.
