Temp spikes way too high. have to babysit and open the door to lower temp. Traegers have the same problem. Returned mine and bought a Green Mountain grill. Couldn't be happier

We are very happy with the grill. I just wished your stores carried the pellets so that we didn't have to order them online. Great purchase!

I love this smoker. It was easy to assemble and I had it up and running in an hour. Once up to temperature it stays steady and a pork shoulder comes out wonderfully smoked and tender.

I used a hand truck/dolly to unload and move the grill because it is heavy. Assembly took about 90 minutes and instructions were pretty accurate except for the grease tray and diffuser which I have the upgraded version not pictured in the manual. The smoke stack gasket was tore so I called Pit Boss service and a friendly fellow promised to send a replacement right away and he explained how to use the upgraded grease tray and diffuser. The gasket took well over 3 weeks to arrive so I am glade it wasn't a major part.
I have cooked ribs, chops, beer can chicken, pizza, winglets, burgers, hot dogs, sausages, steaks, and salmon using a variety of wood flavors. I am now the grill master and the family want me to grill almost everyday. Food really does taste better smoked with wood.
I decided to go with Pit Boss instead of Traeger because you get more for the same price (a bottom shelf & removable side tray, I guess the bottle opener is Ok if you are a beer drinker). You can also use other brand pellets in the Pit Boss and if you use anything other than Traeger pellets in their grill, you void the warranty.
HD only carries Traeger pellets and you can order Home Comfort now. I ordered Pit Boss Pellets from Target (lowest price found). I have tried Traeger's Hickory & Mesquite, and Pit Boss' Hickory, Apple, and Competition Blend; they all work and taste just fine. I use a wireless digital thermometer and it works great with the different meats.
The pellets grill don't produce a lot of ash but you need a vacuum to make cleaning easy. I purchased a Wet/Dry Shop Vac that does a great job; it is a must have for me.
