Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by detherly You Wont Find A Better Grill
I never grilled anything other than hamburgers, hot dogs, and steaks before I got my traeger. Now I do ribs, brisket, pulled pork and it all comes out amazing. You wouldn't believe it unless you tried it. I was very skeptical at first because of the price but since then, I have bought 4 for friends and family. It's worth every penny! I had a problem lighting it once and the customer service answered quickly and I was off the phone in 10 minutes. Great customer service too!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Neighborhoodgrillguy Great for everything, kind of
The grill is great, and I had the same problem as Detherly getting mine to light the first time. Identically to Detherly's experience, I was on and off the phone with Traeger in a flash, problem solved. Should have read the instructions more carefully. OK, now the tiny down side - while everything TASTES great cooked on a Traeger (you're cooking on wood, how could it not), char marks for grilled foods (450° and above - steaks, burgers, dogs) are practically nonexistent. Here's my suggestion if the Traeger's your only cooker. Cook your steak, burger, dogs on the Traeger for a bit (get the meat partly cooked and smoky), and then transfer them to a hot cast iron pan, maybe one with ridges. Now you've got the taste of smoke and the look of fire. For EVERYTHING else, the Traeger is perfect.
