My parents bought a Traeger grill a couple years ago, and holy crap it’s cool. You pour wood pellets (there a ton of different kinds) into the container on the left side of the grill, select the temperature you want, and the grill feeds the pellets into a heating element at whatever speed is necessary to maintain that exact temperature. The result is smokey deliciousness with the ease of using an oven.

The Junior Elite model gives you 300 square inches of cooking space, and $387 is a match for the best price Amazon’s ever listed. Just remember to invite me over the first time you use it to smoke a brisket.
