    Lone ranger is better than any cover.

    Do tell the 3 you wouldn't buy and save me some research. After following the let's eat thread and other topics I'd consider you an expert

    Sous Vide and a 700 degree Weber are hard to beat. Especially for lean wild meat.

    I think if the gasket between the hopper to the auger tube deteriorates you can get water in the auger tube and have wet pellet issues. Or left unused ambient moisture can saturate the pellets and cause issues. I’ve left one outside for years without any issues but I put a cover on it . I find the easier it is to get to the more we use it. We like ours and would replace it with another when it gives up. On a side note my Traeger is an older one around 10 years old. Last year the controller failed and I put in a new one and it has good and bad features but in a nut shell they made it more dummy proof. The older ones let you run it colder but the new ones let it run hotter. I was going to put in an aftermarket controller that had more diversity but it quit the day before I needed to do 4 pork butts so I just picked one up at ace hardware to get it going.

    I like pineapple with pepperoni and green olive, otherwise no. Get my sweet and salty on.

    I’ve had my Traeger out in the elements for 7 years, I did have to silicone the pellet bin early on due to wet pellets but it’s worked great since. I did have a cover but the wind always blew it off and it eventually deteriorated enough I tossed it. Pellet grills are great, I can actually walk away from it and things don’t get burned.
