I wanted a stand alone grill because we bought a small table that would hold four place settings but not the grill.

Spent about 90 bucks for a red Coleman and a few more bucks for a hose to hook that to a 20 pound tank.

Not melting a table is just a side effect of my actions.

Hey Campster,

Love the pellet grill! Where did you get it? What did it cost?

Thanks,
Brookman

Put me in that category. I didn't realize the bottom of the grill should be at least 10" -12" above the top of the surface the grill is on. The grill had legs, I thought they'd be sufficient. Fortunately, the only thing that I melted up was my own TV tray.

It is a Traeger Junior...You can buy them directly from Traeger or find a dealer in your area. Sometimes they are for sale at Costco stores, that is where I bought mine. If I remember right I paid $299.00 for it at costco, they had a sales rep there that day and were running a special. Traeger also has a smaller grill called the PTG (portable tail gator) but the grilling area is too small for my needs. I installed a tailgator kit on mine which removes the legs and adds four wheels for ease of moving it around.
I have been smoking and grilling with a wood pellet grill for the last 8 or 9 years. I recently traded in my larger Traeger home grill for a Louisiana Grill pellet grill, I like it a lot. I tried charcoal and gas for camping but missed the added flavor that the pellets bring so bought the Junior just for camping. Every time I fire it up while camping I make instant friends who are curious as to where the wonderful smell of the wood pellets is coming from. Believe me, once you taste something smoked or grilled on a wood pellet grill you will set your gas grill by the curb with a "FREE" sign on it....

This is interesting--- but folks need to be aware a pellet grill requires
120v AC.

I bought a generator just for the boon docking occasions. I think you can also use an inverter to power them. The only time they use much power is when you first turn them on. There is a hot rod that heats up and starts the pellets on fire. After a few minutes it shuts off and the auger cycles on and off depending on the cooking temp..

I wonder if you can buy "flavored" pellets. Applewood, mesquite, hickory. That would be cool.

I have a green mountain grill Daniel bone pellet grill which uses 120v Their new Davey Crockett (tailgater 200+ sq in cooking space) comes with a transformer to step down from 120 & alligator clips to hook directly to a 12v battery. I'm hoping to get one and add a 12v plug to power it while camping. I agree about the extra smells and flavor with pellets.

I've been bringing my weber grill and my kettle style Masterchef smoker every time we go camping. Everyone loves my smoked pulled pork sandwiches. It's a tradition now.
I love this pellet grill/ smoker I'm seeing from Campster! I'd be killing two birds with one stone... less weight and space to store in fifth storage. I gotta get one!!

Here are a few crabs and some chicken cooking up on the Traeger Jr. The crab were given to us by some people that were camping next to us in Newport Oregon. They needed to borrow a few tools. They had already boiled them up, I was just warming them up for our dinner.
