Found a Traeger at the Local ACE Hardware. They sell the pellets too. Had to pick up a bag of Oak since I use a Hickory/Oak mix.
They seem to work pretty good although I do get some ignition. Just need to monitir things. Good thing I can set up a chair out there under the unbrella. Lousey day weather wise to smoke but it is cool and that gives me better control over the box temp.
Anyhow the first 12 racks are in our smoker. Made a make-shift rack out of hardware cloth to try and get a better exposue than just a flat rack. So fa so good. Snapped a couple of pics too. I'd look into a traegr down the road but for now the one we have is bought and paid for and should anything else go wrong, I can always get some help to add a side mount fire box or just keep getting replacment parts. :smiles:
