This is my new toy, it's big enough for two butts or a small turkey (<14 lbs). So far I like it a lot.

Nice! What is there about this brand that made you chose it over the Traeger. My next door neighbor loves his Traeger.

That's a cute little feller!! How long will a full hopper (15lbs of pellets) last you running at 250-300?

I've run mine for 15+ hours and it still had plenty of pellets in the hopper.

I believe the specs have it at 1/2 pound of pellets consumed per hour. The hopper holds 15 pounds of pellets.

I love the fact that it's small and very portable. The legs fold up under the unit which allow you to throw it in the back of a truck or SUV.

I almost bought a Traeger, but I read that the founder died a while ago and his family took over the company. Their ovens are now built in China and don't hold up as well as the original USA versions.
