We did however, buy a new outdoor grill. After about 15 years our Weber Gas grill finally died. We were about to buy an equivalent replacement when the salesman said . . "You might want to consider this" - A "Traeger smoker grill . . . it works differently".
You fill a box on the left side of the unit with wood pellets, plug the grill in (yes it's electric), turn the control knob to "smoke" and the fun begins. An auger moves the wood pellets from the storage side (left) and drops them into a "fire box" inside the grill. Inside the fire box is an "igniter" which ignites the pellets. A blower is auto engaged moving air inside the grill in a circular motion . The smoker becomes a "convection" grill.
Should you decide to "upgrade" to a smoker, make sure to buy plenty of beer! The smoker takes it's time. Way more time than the Weber! And get ready to learn how to cook outdoors all over! Really different thought process than the Weber. The Weber was always "get'r done"! Now it's . . take your time and enjoy the nice weather, the food will taste great!
Still early into this experience . . . I'll keep you posted!

"Day-O (The Banana Boat Song)" is a traditional Jamaican folk song; the best-known version was released by Jamaican-American singer Harry Belafonte in 1956 and later became one of his signature songs. It is a work song, from the point of view of dock workers working the night shift loading bananas onto ships. Daylight has come, the shift is over, and they want their work to be counted up so that they can go home
