    I'm using the Pitboss 820 pellet grill and pretty happy with it and it's quite a bit cheaper than a Treager. Fits a full brisket no problem. It's also nice that you can open up the heat shield to do searing on there if you are reverse searing a steak. I just separately use a wireless meat probe for temp.

    Thanks for sharing... the lack of a dedicated Searing function on the lower end Tragers was bit of a concern. I am considering the PB 850 for $799 (with PID/WiFi) right now but finding stock is virtually impossible. It's crazy talking to people who sell BBQ's at Barbeque Galore/Costco, it's hard to find stock. Other alternative is to go with a ~600 grill without that functionality like the Pit Boss 700fb. Still debating also spending the additional $180 for the Traeger Silverton 660 from Costco (for no meaningful additional functionality)

    My buddy who upgraded raves about the "D2 drivetrain" in his new traeger vs whatever the old one was. Holds more consistent temps apparently? I dunno. I don't have yard space for another appliance.

    Amount of times I have seared actual BBQ: 0

    Just use a gas grill for grilling. Or if you really need to sear something, cast iron w/butter is superior to any gimmick on a BBQ

    The Searing area on the PB820 is relatively small and imo not too helpful. I always end up just using the gas grill anyway for searing. I would never consider the smoker a grill replacement.

    I picked up my PB820 for $200 at Walmart end of season last year (~August), so if yo don't end up picking up something now, you might need some floor model deals later in the season?

    Wow... Yeah. I think going at this right now is probably a large waste of money. I think I might wait until the end of the season and try to get a deal and try to find a cheapo natural gas grill for the summer from Kijiji

    Just got back from Costco EH yesterday to see what they had. They didn't have the Silverton 620, but will have it later in the week, unsure of when. That seems to be the one to go for if you want a mid-sized Smoker with all the updated internals etc. The other one they had was the Century 855 which was for $1,399. Larger size (~30%), warming drawer underneath. I realized that the larger size was definitely a nice thing if you are doing meal preps. They had two other models as well, but their max temperature was 450 and no-wifi, and I wanted something that would do 500+ for good char/searing and a replacement for a gas grill. The common consensus is that the Silverton 920 for ~$980 is the best buy of the bunch.

    Have heard some mixed things about the Costco models quality wise, and the price is still significant. The features that I wanted were the App Control and higher temperatures, but I am considering ditching the app control to save some money.... especially since this is my first smoker. Last year they had a Princess Auto Pellet Smoker for $350 which would have been awesome in getting my fix in... probably would rust out within a couple years though.
    Thx for the info! The 620 might be what I'm looking for. Just hard to fork over the almost 1k on a smoker when I have a decent Weber NG grill right now

    and I did not have the only say in the matter (most people just want it done ASAP and don't care about quality).

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    Bob did you hit that with some cure or was that smoke alone?

    Accurate. Electric is not a full solution unless you are a savage.

    Just the usual rub and smoke... No curing. Those were done on my pellet smoker.

    The below ones were with with the stick burner. The ring gets even deeper!
