I have my gas grill - love it. Use it all of the time. But I do have a real soft spot for smoked meats and that's one realm the gas grille can't touch.

A buddy of mine has a Traeger and says it's a fantastic piece of gear. I have another friend that raves about the Green Egg. Price points between the two are fairly substantial when considering size (although, I think the Traeger can get up above $1K).

Anyhow, anyone?

I own a Weber natural gas grill, a Masterbuilt electric smoker and a Kamado Joe grill/smoker. Of the 3, I like the KJ most. I haven’t touched the electric smoker since the KJ showed up. I still us the Weber occasionally but it’s mainly out of convenience.

Is the masterbuilt similar to the Traeger?

Does Traeger make an electric smoker? I thought they just make pellet smokers?

Here’s the Masterbuilt I own. I also have the cold smoke attachment but I don’t think that it works that well.

They are pellet smokers that plug-in. So they have an electric element of some kind ;-)

I actually think this discussion might be out of my hands... I think my family is buying me some kind of smoker as a B-day gift.

Anyhow, a buddy of mine has a Traeger and swears by it.

Ahh! I thought they were charcoal with a pellet feeder. TBH just about any smoker beats a normal grill in my opinion!
