I figured there has to be some experienced smokers in here and wanted to ask for some advice looking for my first. I know charcoal makes the best flavor. But I'm worried that will be a lot to take on for a first timer and I don't learn well by reading things online. If I had a local friend who did I would learn from them but I don't that I know of. So I'm thinking pellet, electric, or propane. I've been looking hard at these Traeger Junior Elites and have been told they are legit. I am nervous spending the money on that only because there are a lot of moving parts and I've heard their customer service isn't the best (could just be people who are upset). It does have between a 4-4.5 review everywhere. So that has to be good. But is there anything else I should look at under $450? And word of advice? Thank you all in advance for your help!!!
