    Who has the best price on the traegers? I had found a place in oregon that had good prices but lost their web site during a computer switch. I need to buy one this week.

    They maintain their prices pretty much across the board, find yourself a local dealer if you can as there may be occassional maitenance items such as the "hot rod".

    I really enjoy mine.

    The website was probably the Traeger Outlet.

    I bought mine at Fireside Hearth and Home and when I bought it last year all the price I could find on the net were the same but I got the Digital control for free

    Thanks folks, I found the website I was looking for, it was in Portland Oregon, and the the Texas was priced at 999 with the digital thermometer and free shipping. which means I save sales tax. I have a friend that sells them and am still waiting for his price.

    I did not end up getting the grill from my friend as he was having trouble with the shipment and it worked out to my advantage imho.

    I bought a traeger 2 days ago only to find out yesterday it was now made in China. Traeger has had all but a few models now being made in china since the middle of last year. I cancelled the order upon finding that out.

    I searched this morning on a whim and found a brand new USA built unit a a lumber lard in a near by town. I told them to hold it and went and picked it up. I ended up paying about a 150 more cause of tax and extra pellets that were included from my friend, also need to add in my travel time but i got a USA made product sitting in my garage.

    Yes the 075. I found another local guy who is a regs dealer but does it out of his home, and has a a few on display at a couple store fronts. He has about 4-5 USA models left. He also hooked me up on what the wholesale cost of the units and pellets, covers and digital thermometers are. I got a decent deal.

    This made in China has to be BS... I can't believe a family owned company with great customer service would do this. Proof?? Link???

    proof is in the pudding, Look at the serial number, if they have a C in front of them they are from china, and easier way to tell though is check for the bolt on legs.

    Call any traeger dealer and they will confirm this.
