    BigBlue, I have a Lil Tex with the digital controller, and love it. They're pretty simple devices, actually. You might ask if he's ever had to replace the hot rod (like an igniter on a gas grill, they can burn out). I did once, but I use my Traeger 4 to 5 times a week. And the service dept. told me how to manually light the grill, then sent me a replacement hot rod the next day free of charge. Go for it!

    thank for the reply i think he replaced the ignitor  last year. Do they problems with the auger at all ? Are the old models and new models have any pros and cons or big changes ?

    Big Blue, have never heard of auger problems unless someone let moisture get into their pellets or pellet bin. Have heard of people having their grills for years. The older models are heavier--nice if you're working in wind or cold temperatures. Have a good weekend!
