I just sprung 400 dollars for a new traeger pellet grill (the small starter grill). So far we have grilled pork chops on high heat and did ribs today on smoke on low heat. I have to say those two meals were outstanding. Much better than I could have had dining out in bo-dunck southern IL. I justify this cost by telling myself that if we just eat at home 10 x this summer rather than going out to eat that the grill has paid for itself. Do you justify things like that in your mind just to make yourself feel better???
