From the area where Traeger Grills were started:

Notes: They make an $11,000 grill too.

The Wi-Fi controller is interesting.

Bruce Bjorkman is quoted in the story worked for Traeger in marketing for 13 years, I believe.

If you want to listen to his radio show, here is more info:

The show is streamed.

Good story! I wonder what criteria the "Made In America Foundation" uses when determining who gets into its Hall of Fame, as on first thought it would seem that Weber would be a lock to get in.

From what I've read else where they make a really good grill. but for me it's just like deciding between a Weber or BGE, one is a tad more affordable than the other thats why I have a Traeger instead of MAK.

Have looked at Eggs over the years and almost bought one once. Know there is Primeaux and now a number of "off brand" kamados. I have my Webers - two One Touch's and two WSM's. I have no need for anything else.
