My original Trager rusted or burned out the fire pot in about 4 years, easy to replace. We bought a newer one they had that looked more like a gas grill and what a POS. It was the model. I have nothing against the Trager it is a great pellet grill and like you said just cover it and I think they even sell insulating covers for them, never bought one. They are all good grills and they all I think work similar to each other just that each one has a few differences. In my opinion these pellet grills no mater what brand are the best thing we have ever used. we grill 4 to 6 times a week all year long. Cant go wrong any way you go.

2400 dollars for a Memphis wow I can buy a ****load of pellets. Thx



I know I did not say they were cheap. It did make a difference in cold weather for a more even temp that helped a lot on the low and slow side as well as the are all Stainless so the rusting of the metal is non existent. With the Trager I had some things rust out in less than 2 years so that was part of my decision. Like anything you get what you pay for in some cases. Everyone has their like sand dislikes, Still like my original Trager that is over 12 years old. They were built way better at first before mass producing them and it shows. To each his own.

I have had Trager and Green Mountain both and got rid of the Green Mountain and replaced it with a Memphis as it gets hotter and is better built all SS and made here in MN. the Memphis gets 650 to sear a steak and runs down to 180 for slow smoking. I use 1/2 the amount of pellets as the entire grill is insulated and stays an even temp. comes with thermometers that can be set to the desired temp and the grill will go on a hold mode once the set temp is reached. Still have my original Traeger that I use for smoking fish only in the warmer months.

My guys were there today working and said they were just starting to put houses out. They built a new office home for Ron and Tracy and will renovate some of the lodge for more customer space. Great people and a great place to stay!

I know what you are going thru. I ran a Skeeter WX2000T with a 150 Yamaha for 6 years, then decided a smaller boat was in order. Ordered a Backtroller without a motor as John was having trouble getting Suzuki's then so I put a 90 hp. Yamaha on it. The boat is made like few others and is top quality. Not a fast boat but a good boat. backtrolls well but a bit squirrely at wide open throttle in larger waves just hang on to the tiller handle. this is where Johns new tiller assist would solve that problem. For me after running a 20' glass boat then going smaller I did struggle a bit so I ended up taking a butt kicking and sold it. I now run a Skeeter MX 1825 and love it. The wife likes the windshield and the 150 SHO is more than enough motor to serve our needs. Overall you will not find a better built, higher quality tiller boat at 17' than the backtroller, you give up some space but if it is big enough for you and the wife you will love it. Good luck in your search.

Me too. Drove around the whole lake today looking at work and stopping a different jobs. Made a tough ride home just wanted to grab the boat and get out. Enjoy it while you can today was a beauty day to be out on the water.

Al Mass is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet and not to mention a heck of a fisherman. Tom Wilson is my neighbor and is a great fisherman as well and know the lake really well. If both of them are busy then try calling Shriver's bait as a lot of guides hang our there and I am sure someone has some free time.

Sitting in my office watching trucks drive down the lake. I think this will be the latest I have seen in over 20 years but it could change.
