I have the go ahead from the wife to buy a pellet smoker. I just can't make up my mind on which one. I have Treager dealer in my town but am not sure about the quality. If I buy a Treager it will be the lil tex elite. I am leaning towards the Yoder 480. The problem is there seems to be little feedback on the product. I do not have the cash to spend on a real nice grill like a MAK. I am looking in the $1000 range or less but am willing to go to the $1200 range like the Yodar if it is worth it.
